At their engagement party, Lucy decides to confront Sam about the allegations, which leads to an almighty bust up between the girls and their respective boyfriends’ Mario and Joey Essex.


Sam, who has been friends with Lucy since they were teens, explains to best friend Gemma: “One minute I’m a friend, then I’m the enemy.”


Gemma concurs: “You were only looking out for her.”


But Lucy is upset that Sam tarnished their engagement as soon as it was announced and tearfully tells Sam: “You were my friend. And what you are doing now is completely ruining that.”


The argument gets more heated and a defensive Mario accuses Joey of cheating in Ibiza and Lucy alleges that Sam recently strayed on a night out at popular Essex nightclub Faces.


As neither party backs down, a distraught Lucy tells Sam: “Thanks for ruining our engagement party.”
It seems like The Only Way Is Drama for the stars of TOWIE!
