TOWIE fans watched as Ricky turned up at a Wright family meal with a giant bouquet of flowers before reading out a love poem in front of the whole restaurant.
Jessica's dad Big Mark, her mum Carol and Nanny Pat had previously had a heart-to-heart with her about whether she should forgive and forget.
In front of them and while holding back tears, Ricky said: "It all started out as love's young dream, with romance and chemistry that flowed like a stream. We never knew what had hit us, it felt like love, I'd been sent an angel from the heavens above.
"I'll wait 'til the end, I'll never stop trying, cos you're my world there's no denying. Without you I'm lost, I'll never find my way, but for now I'll keep dreaming of that special day."
Jess thanked Ricky, but flatly told him: "I know how sorry you are and I know you regret it. I just need time to work out how I'm going to feel."
Earlier in the ITV2 show, Jess told Lucy Mecklenburgh and Sam and Billie Faiers that Ricky could have cheated on her with up to "three or four" girls at the beginning of their relationship.
Jess said: "He rang me and was like, 'I know I admitted I slept with someone, but you should know now because I don't want to keep lying to you, it was a few times right at the start'.
"I didn't even cry, I was like, 'Yeah, I guessed that anyway'. I knew all along.
