In last night's episode (16 March), viewers saw a tearful Jess speaking to her cousin Elliott Wright, explaining that cheating rumours surrounding James Lock and Danielle Armstrong's relationship had opened up old wounds about Ricky's past betrayal.
Jess also explained that her mum Carol suggesting she should freeze her eggs and constant questioning over her future with Ricky had left her "confused".
Speaking to Elliott at a party, Jess said: "This whole Danielle and James thing has brought up a lot of it in my head and I'm going through a little bit of a s***y stage actually."
Elliott replied: "I know you love him but for me, from a protective point of view, I want to know that he's going to be able to look after you. And I'm not just speaking for me, I'm speaking for the whole family. Every man in our family is a man's man and he goes and gets that money to look after his family, and when I look at Ricky, he ain't got that in him."
'Dance All Night' singer Jess was quick to defend their romance, saying: "Do you know how hard it is to be with someone that no one wants me to be with. No one understands our relationship and everyone says that I shouldn't be with him.
"I've spent nearly two years with someone building a relationship and all anyone can say to me is 'why are you with Ricky?'
"I'm confused and I'm scared. My mum's talking to me about freezing eggs. Do you know how scared I am? Being 28 and being with a younger person and not having a ring on my finger and having the perfect fairytale, no one gets it."
Elliott, 33, explained that Carol was only being protective, but Jess replied: "Ignore my mum, no matter who I'm with she's never happy. She's making me resent her. I mean it Elliott, I'm resenting her so much at the minute."
While Ricky looked on from a distance, Elliott continued to console Jess, adding: "All that matters, is that you're happy."

He later added: "@MissJessWright_ @RickyRayment as long as you are both happy together that is all that matters.. Live for the moment.. Night love birds x."
