Elliott was spotted kissing Chloe at co-star Mario Falcone's birthday party in Essex on Saturday (15 February).
In the photos, Chloe was seen wrapping her arms around Elliott while the pair embraced in the middle of the dance floor, but Elliott exclusively tells Reveal that it was all just a bit of fun.
"We were filming for Mario's birthday," restaurant owner Elliott tells us. "We're the same age and we were having a laugh together and she put her arms around me.
"There was a lot of drink involved, but that was it. There was no tongues involved either! It did look that way in the pictures though."
Elliott, who is the cousin of Mark and Jessica Wright, continued: "Chloe's quite attractive. She's a lovely girl but I'm enjoying being single right now. I normally go for blondes but I always try to look for a brunette for some reason!"
In the last series, Elliott went out on a couple of dates with Sam Faiers and even tried his luck with Lucy Mecklenburgh, but he isn't ruling out on settling down and finding his very own Mrs. Wright.
"I'd like to meet a girl that I can have a nice conversation with and that I can take to dinner," he said. "I'm looking for the perfect girl."
