Describing their relationship now, Ashley told Reveal at Virgin Media's V Festival: "We are civil and when we see each other out and about we are polite, but we don't talk anymore.

"Hopefully one day in the future we can be friends again."

Earlier this month, Ollie revealed that he has decided to quit Made In Chelsea, adding: "The party is over for me."

In one way, Ashley - who spoke to us in the exclusive Virgin Media Louder Lounge in Chelmsford, Essex - is pleased he has left, although in another way she is a little disappointed.

"It's a shame Ollie has quit, as there are a few things between us that I feel have been left hanging," Ashley revealed, as she chatted outside the Pioneer tent.

"I'd like to iron things out with him. In a way though, it's also a small relief as the show kind of forced the issue of our relationship. At least my scenes won't just be about us now."

Ashley added: "Ollie was unhappy for a while, so good for him for taking the plunge. I wish him luck in whatever he does next."
