Sam Faiers marks eight year anniversary with Paul Knightley: Always by my side

Oct 16, 2022

Sam Faiers has marked her eight-year anniversary with her partner, Paul Knightly, after the Ferne McCann voice note drama.

The former TOWIE star, 31, took to Instagram on Saturday, where she shared a selection of pictures of herself and Paul throughout the years, that Paul later reshared on his own account.

The first picture showed Sam in a green dress with a plunging neckline as she is sitting on Paul's lap, who is wearing a white shirt, in a snap taken at the start of their relationship.

On top of the image, Sam wrote: "One of our first pictures together @paulknightly happy eight years.

"Today 8 years ago I saw you across the dance floor. I knew you was mine. The rest is history."

Another post showed the couple in elegant formal wear, as Sam gushingly added: "Always by my side, my best friend, I love you, thank you for making my laugh every single day."

"@paulknightly juggling life with you is my favourite thing in the world," she captioned a black and white image, this time of the whole family.

The final shot is a throwback snap showing Sam at The Ritz in London with a drink in one hand as baby Paul, whom she had in 2015, is sitting on the chair beside her.

“#checkedin #theritz celebrating our 2 year anniversary,” she wrote at the time.

Sam and Paul met in 2014 at the Sheesh restaurant in Chigwell shortly after the former TOWIE star had split from Joey Essex.

Paul, a property developer and estate agent, dated Sam for just five months before she fell pregnant, with the pair now parents to three children.

The anniversary comes after a drama-packed few weeks for Sam after an Instagram account leaked a voice note in which a woman who is allegedly her former friend Ferne McCann can be heard calling Sam a "c**t", adding: "Her thighs are so big and I looked really skinny today."

Another voice note was then leaked, in which the woman can be heard saying: "She is just a narcissistic b***h.

"It’s just so s**t on people that have worked hard, because she’s got a big following. It’s just ridiculous — it’s out of order."

Another voice note followed, and this time, the woman speaking in it directed their words at Sam’s sister Billie Shepherd for calling her son 'Arthur' – the name of Ferne's ex-boyfriend and baby daddy.

In the clip, said to have been recorded in 2017, the woman, allegedly Ferne, said: "It feels so weird saying 'Arthur'.

She continued: "I can't believe…it's like me having a little boy and calling him 'Greg' [the name of Billie's husband]… anyway, whatever."

Neither Sam or Ferne have addressed the voice notes, nor have the former friends been seen with each other since the Instagram account posted these voice messages.
