This comes after last week’s instalment of the ITVBe reality show where Sam also celebrated her milestone birthday with Billie and Suzanne.
To mark the special occasion, Billie and Suzanne chose to write heartfelt messages to Sam telling her just how much she means to them.

Speaking about the touching moment viewers witnessed as the women reflected on their relationship and the memories they have shared together over the years, Sam said: “I’m just an emotional wreck. The three of us have got an unbreakable bond.”
She added: “I just feel so special at this point, I feel so loved. I feel really emotional.”
