She then shared her appreciation for her boyfriend and said: “Not forgetting my @sammucklow_ you are everything I’ve dreamed of and more.
“You have been my rock. I am so grateful for you like you wouldn’t believe.”

The brunette called Sam her “best friend” and said: “I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know. Thank you for being YOU. You never fail to amaze me day by day.

She then had a message for her 326,000 followers and said: “Lets all spread more love and positivity, And one last thing.. thank you to the incredible followers and supporters your kindness and messages don’t go unnoticed.”
The TOWIE brunette started a romance with her cast mate and close friend Sam at the start of the 24th series of TOWIE, which aired in March this year. In the first episode, Sam and Shelby were embroiled in a row after they slept together and Sam openly flirted with Demi Sims, 23, hours later.
TOWIE viewers then saw Shelby date newbie Tom McDonnell, 23, and ended her flirtatious friendship with Sam after confessing she was ready to make things official with Tom.
However, once the series ended, it Shelby took a U-turn as she rekindled her relationship with Sam. The couple then made things official and made their first public appearance as an item in June.
Meanwhile, as TOWIE returned in August, it became apparent that Shelby and her best friend Clelia Theodorou, 24, were not on good terms. The friends have had a “huge row” after Clelia was left upset and felt Shebly didn’t support her after her split from her boyfriend.
A TOWIE source at told The Sun before the series aired: “Shelby started spending all her time with Sam and when Clelia broke up with her boyfriend, Shelby wasn’t there for her.
“She didn’t even call her and they live together. “So Clelia’s been spending all her time in at home Devon because she’s been so upset.”

Their fallout then leaked onto TV screens as Shelby confronted Clelia in a recent episode of the Essex reality series. On the show, Shelby told her ex-BFF: “Can I just start off by saying after all this time we can finally talk. I've been sending you so many messages.”
But, Clelia didn’t believe Shelby and replied: “No. You messaged me twice and rang my mum with the excuse 'My internet hasn't been working'. It's b******t.”
Shelby insisted that, despite being on holiday with her boyfriend Sam at the time of Clelia’s breakup, she tried to be there for Clelia.
Reality star Clelia hit back by calling her former friend a “f*****g liar" and adding: “I've been there for you through everything, everything. You need have more of a head, Shelby. You didn't text me.
“I couldn't get myself off the f***ing floor. You were with Sam all summer and you just sat there.”
Shelby asked is she “not allowed happiness” to which Clelia replied: “I have wanted you to be happy forever.”
Listing Shelby's ex flames, Clelia said: “Gatsby, Pete, Tom, Sam, Saffron, I've had your back through everything but you can't be there for me.”
Shelby then called time on the row, and said they’re “never going to agree” and she was “disappointed that after seven years” Clelia didn’t come to her for support and Clelia stormed off and exclaimed she was “done”.
