London: Though reality show ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ star Amy Childs has admitted that her romance with city broker Joe Hurlock is on the rocks, she insists she is ‘no love cheat.’

Childs confessed that Hurlock hit the roof after seeing pictures of her leaving a Marbella club at 5am with Burnley star Jack Cork, 21.

Hurlock even snubbed a family meal last week, held to celebrate her 21st birthday, over the photos.

New! magazine columnist Childs, who was in Marbella with Sam Faiers, 20, and three other friends, flew home to face the music from a “seriously pissed off” Hurlock, 24. She has been dating him for eight months.

“Joe is really annoyed at the moment. He’s upset about those pictures with the footballer,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.

“I don’t blame him, they make me look bad. But hand on my heart, I never cheated on him,” she added.

Amy said it was difficult for her and Joe to live out their relationship in the public eye.

She said: “People try to catch you out. I’ve been linked to every bloke on the planet.

“I can understand the interest, but it’s hard for Joe,” she added.
