Going back to her roots! TOWIE's Sam Faiers relives her glamour modelling days as she goes topless by the pool in Marbella
14:38 GMT, 1 June 2012
She's best known for starring on The Only Way Is Essex and even owns her own clothing store, but once upon a time Sam Faiers had a rather different career.
The 21-year-old used to enjoy being a glamour model in magazines such as Nuts and Zoo and today she almost relived those days.
As she lounged around the pool in Marbella, Spain, Sam flashed a bit too much flesh after undoing her bikini top.

Joined by her boyfriend Joey Essex, the blonde star seemed to forget that she was in a public place but still tried to cover up her modesty as best she could.
Wearing peach-coloured bikini bottoms and a white sequined top, Sam was clearly keen to top up her tan in the Spanish sunshine.
But perhaps Sam had a sudden panic thinking about possible tan lines and quickly undid the halterneck strap to reveal her breasts.
It's a hard life: The blonde kept cool by taking a dip in the water while Joey Essex walked around in his Calvin Klein trunks

As she adjusted her beach towel, the TV star let it all hang out before tying it up again and making her way back to the swimming pool.
Joey also showed off as much skin as possible by wearing tiny blue Calvin Klein trunks.
Proving that he is the doting boyfriend, Joey bought lunch out for him and Sam which consisted of a plate of sandwiches.

As they ate their food by the pool, the smitten pair chatted with one another before Joey took his girlfriend's face in his hands.
It's not the first public display of affection that the couple have enjoyed while in Marbella.
Last night they were spotted kissing in public as they sat with friends in a local restaurant.
