Fans of the show would have seen their on and off flirtations come crashing to an end when Sam Faiers broke Mark Wright's heart.
But the glamour model has now admitted that she still has a thing for her former The Only Way Is Essex co-star – and would easily taken him up on the offer of being his girlfriend.
It begs the question whether the scene in which the 21-year-old told the club promoter she didn't want to be with him during the series three finale, was all for show.
Outspoken: The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers has revealed she would like to date Mark Wright again
Mark had recently called off his engagement to another TOWIE babe, Lauren Goodger – with whom he was in a relationship on and off for 10 years, and was dating Sam.
When she called it quits on their brief fling – having already dated in the past – he jetted off to the jungle in Australia film I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
Sam was then in a relationship with boyfriend TJ
before the pair split in February.

You're so vain! Mark Wright tweeted this picture of himself today saying he like his 'Jesus bracelet'
She told Reveal magazine: 'I still fancy Mark. He's quite sexy – there's no denying it!
And he's lovely and a really nice guy. For some reason, people keep
saying that me and Mark will get back together but I don't know.
'I've just come out of a relationship and want to be single – but maybe I'd make an exception for him.'
The blonde also used the interview to take a swipe at the new stars in the reality show, saying she was disappointed the last series was 'taken over' by the likes of Georgina Dorsett, Ricky Rayment and Cara Kilbey – as well as James 'Arg' Argent and Lydia Bright's split.
'It was a bit stressful. It was OK, but the break-ups and the tears took over a bit. As did the new characters.
'But I think the new series is going to be a big one for all the original cast – they are the ones everyone wants to see.'
