The Only Way Is Essex’s Shelby Tribble has added fuel to the rumours that she and her beau Sam Mucklow are engaged with a cryptic Instagram post.
The 26 year old reality star shared a stunning photo of herself and Sam holding hands while walking out of a swimming pool and wrote in the caption: “Can’t wait for our new adventure,” along with a heart and aeroplane emoji.
Shelby and her beau Sam, 27, sparked rumours he had popped the question when the Essex lad posted a photo of himself and Shelby kissing and said in the caption: “Who’s coming to the wedding then?,” accompanied by a bride and groom emoji.
TOWIE stars seemed to add to the speculation as they congratulated the couple in the comments section.
Courtney Green commented on the snap: “I’m bridesmaid!!!”
While fellow TV star Tommy Mallet wrote: “Congratulations bro.” While Liam Gatsby wrote: “Of course she was gonna say Yes!!!!!!! Congrats you two.”
Hours after the couple seemed to announce they were getting hitched, it was reported that it was “staged” to make Sam’s ex Nicole Bass “jealous”.
A source told the Mail Online: “Shelby and Sam aren't really engaged.
“They’re not even in the same country – he's on holiday in Barbados with his family and Shelby is at home.

“Sam was keen to make ex Nicole jealous on her birthday and ruin her weekend.
“He wanted the proposal to look real so text several of his famous friends to comment congratulations on his post.“
Sam later hit back at the reports, calling them “bulls**t” on his Instagram.
In another twist, Sam sensationally announced he was quitting TOWIE in an Instagram statement on Sunday 20 October.
The blond Essex lad shared a number of photos of himself and other cast mates during his time on TOWIE and announced it was time to say “goodbye TOWIE” after a year on the show in the caption.
Writing alongside the images, Sam said: “GOODBYE TOWIE ! I made the decision to leave Towie. It was something I have been contemplating for some time and I finally had to make a decision about what I wanted to do.”
He then explained: “After the away trip in Spain I took a few weeks off of filming to try and get back on top of my work that I had let slide away from me.

“Juggling filming 3 days a week and trying to manage my various work commitments it was no longer feasible for me to continue on the show.
“After having long discussion with various people at the Towie production company we made the mutual decision that it would be best for me to leave the show.”
He then gushed about his rumoured fiancee Shelby, writing: “Me and @shelbytribble have never been happier and we are continuing our little fairytale away from the pressure and anxiety from the show.
“I really feel I have made the right decision to focus on the things that are truly important to me!”
Sam then added: “I wish everyone the best of luck cast and crew I have been extremely lucky to be part of such an amazing show!
“It’s been a short but eventful part of my life and I will be putting it down to a life experience with no regrets.”
Ending his caption, Sam wrote: “I’m walking away with a smile on my face and a beautiful girl on my arm Thank you everyone at @towie @limepicturestv & @itvbe”. [sic]
