Series 23 of The Only Way is Essex is set to return to our screens very soon! (Sunday, September 2nd)

A new Essex hunk is joining the crew, Sam Mucklow, and it looks like we might be familiar with the leading lady in Sam’s life.

So, who is Sam Mucklow’s girlfriend? Hell, who even is Sam Mucklow?

Date Night ???

Sam Mucklow’s older sister is a former TOWIE cast member, Billi Mucklow.

Billi joined the crew in series 3, back in 2011, and enjoyed a six-series stint on the show.

She’s now a qualified Bikram yoga teacher and has two sons with footballer Andy Carroll.

Who is Sam Mucklow’s Girlfriend?

Nicole appeared on TOWIE for seasons 15 and 16 alongside her boyfriend at the time, Lewis Bloor.

Sam has been dating ex-TOWIE cast member Nicole Bass for 5 months.


Her time on The Only Way is Essex was pretty short-lived and saw her in blazing rows with Lewis.

Nicole also starred in series 6 of MTV’s Ex on the Beach in 2017.

? When Fire Meets Fire ?

A post shared by Sam Mucklow (@sammucklow_) on

Sam entitled his Instagram post with his bae “when fire meets fire”.

Let’s hope he’s not too firey, though, as there are more than enough bold characters on the TOWIE season 23 already.

Who knows whether he’ll be causing agg or mugging people off – in any case, a new series of The Only Way Is Essex is enough for us!

When does the new series of TOWIE start? Time and channel!
