Lip-smackingly good! Sam Faiers and her boyfriend TJ share a very public kiss after a meal in their native Essex
They”ve been romancing one another since the summer, but Sam Faiers” relationship with her boyfriend TJ still appears to be in the honeymoon period.
The couple went for a meal at TOWIE favourite Smiths in Ongar, Essex and after spending the evening at the seafood specialist, Sam and her man shared a very public smooch together.
As they walked out towards the car park TJ moved in for a kiss, pushing so far in that Sam almost recoiled to cope with the facial invasion.
Sealed with a kiss: Sam Faiers appears slightly taken aback by her boyfriend TJ leaning in for a smooch after their meal at Smith”s in Ongar, Essex
The 21-year-old wore a black trouser suit with a revealing top half that barely contained her chest, matched with a pair of sky high black patent heels, a grey jacket and a black handbag.
TJ was dressed just as smart as his girlfriend, wearing a pair of jeans with pointed black shoes, a black cardigan and a white shirt.
He beamed as he left the restaurant, obviously happy with the meal he”d just shared with his girlfriend and even more overjoyed at being with Sam herself.
Lip service: The rather public display of affection was captured by a snapper
And the couple”s spirit would have been buoyed by a bottle of champagne given to them by ex-TOWIE star Amy Childs” mother, Julie.
She tweeted to thank Julie for the bottle, writing: “Lovely Dinner at smiths with tj, now on my way home for a drink. Thanku @mrsjuliechilds for our champagne 🙂 x x x x”
At Smiths the couple had the choice from a delicious selection of seafood – including the special Christmas set menu, which offers two courses for just 24.50.

Starter options on the menu include steamed shetland mussels in white wine, cream and shallot sauce or fillets of rolled sweet swedish herrings with crme frache.
While mains include cornish monkfish goujons in panko breadcrumbs with sweet chilli dipping sauce or a simple battered cod with mushy peas.
Sam and her man were first seen together at the V Festival in late August.
In September it became clear that the couple were dating officially when they were snapped taking a stroll together – TJ unable to keep his hands off his woman.
But in the months since Sam was seen kissing Mark Wright on screen.
Though it hasn”t been discussed, it”s possible that TJ and Sam split for a while before reconciling.
Or perhaps Sam felt their relationship was not as serious as observers may have assumed.
