SHELBY Tribble revealed she nearly lost her lip during a passionate snog with her hunky co-star.
The Only Way Is Essex beauty recently enjoyed a very passionate smooch with hunky co-star Sam Mucklow.
But things nearly went very wrong for Shelby Tribble during the romantic encounter.
The stunning 26-year-old revealed she almost had her lip bitten off by the 23-year-old as things got very passionate.
Speaking to The Sun Online, the TV babe explained that the pair shared their saucy kiss on a recent trip to Thailand.
She told the publication: “We did snog last night in the corridor of the hotel. We ended up staying up all night drinking and having fun.
“I chatted to the girls about it but they all said I need to chat to Sam to find out what’s happening.
“He left me with a bloody lip. It was a very passionate bite. He drew blood and basically ripped my lip off.”
Although it seems the near-accident hasn’t put her off Sam, as she added: “I must admit he is very sexy though.”
However, the stunner did admit she was nervous about taking their friendship to the next level as she didn’t want to “ruin” their close bond.
It’s nice to see our Shelby happy again after a very tumultuous relationship with ex-boyfriend and fellow TOWIE star, Pete Wicks.
The ITVBe pair split last September after Shelby claimed she had discovered a string of messages on his phone to other women.
Unsurprisingly, after her heartbreak, she admitted she fears being hurt again.
She explained: “After Pete, I don’t want to get hurt again or have a relationship on TOWIE. Then they say the best relationships come from friendships.
“I do miss being in a relationship. I am a relationship kind of girl.”
Meanwhile, Sam also suffered heartache last year when he broke up with former TOWIE star Nicole Bass after six months of dating.
TOWIE returns to ITVBe for TOWIE Thailand on March 17.
