During the episode, James convinced Danielle to meet him and he finally confessed to bedding the women in the early stages of their relationship before they "were official".
He then told Danielle that he hadn't slept with anyone in recent months and said it was purely "texting".
Unsurprisingly, Danielle was on the brink of tears as James told her the ball was in her court and to phone him "when she's ready"...
Danielle took to Twitter during the ITV2 show and told fans: "Well that made me cry again just watching it... If only men's pride didn't get in the way of their real feelings #StillStayingStrong."
She added: "Thank u all for the lovely comments, means so much to me! Going to sleep now need to get some beauty sleep..."
Fellow TOWIE star Ferne McCann, who had called James a "naughty boy" earlier in the episode, also had her say on his use of the word "official".
She blasted: "Cheap excuse! 'We were not official' just admit it there was an OVERLAP!"
However, despite everything, James appears to have told his followers that he will be "fighting" to get Danielle back.
"I'm really not good with my words!" he admitted. "Decide what makes you happy and fight for it, and that's exactly what I'm going to do!! Night everyone x."
Meanwhile, there was more heartbreak in Essex after Chloe Sims and Mario Falcone decided to split following their month-long secret relationship.
