Tommy Mallet

Sam Mucklow is best friends with TOWIE royalty, Tommy Mallet.

Georgia Kousoulou arranged a group trip to Sardinia and secretly got Sam to come out and surprise Tommy.

Sam Mucklow ear fracas

It looks as though Sam’s got a bit of a past.

He was banned from watching football matches for three years after an incident in Brazil in 2014.

Sam got into an argument with another fan at the World Cup, which resulted in the victim having part of his ear bitten off.

Sam admitted to being involved in the row but denied biting the victim.

Either way, we’re sure Sam and the other bloke are hearing less about that incident nowadays…

Nicole Bass

Sam Mucklow had a girlfriend that some of us may recognize.

Nicole Bass was on both TOWIE and Ex on the Beach.

Sam and Nicole were together for five months, however, once on TOWIE he swiftly moved onto Shelby Tribble, Lauren Pope and now in series 24 there’s potential for a romance with Chloe Sims’ sister, Demi Sims!

Billi Mucklow

Sam is the younger brother of another familiar face from TOWIE, Billi Mucklow.

He has two sisters, Georgie and Billi, and judging by his Instagram account it looks like it’s family first for the Mucklow family.

Sam’s sister Billi is married to footballer Andy Carroll. They have two sons together called Arlo and Wolf.

Sam Mucklow’s job

In TOWIE series 24 episode 2, Tommy Mallett described Sam as “one of the richest guys he knows”.

And it turns out that 26-year-old Sam is actually the director of not one, but two companies!

According to Sam is the director of Master Property Management Limited and Bellecity Homes Limited.
