Made In Chelsea's Jamie Laing has been described as "the Lee Ryan of Chelsea" by This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby!

Jamie and Lucy playfully posed outside of the ITV studios today.

And the first topic of conversation was Jamie and his recent love drama with Lucy.

Viewers will remember that Jamie finally managed to win Lucy over at the Christmas special in December - the pair shared a kiss after Jamie told her that he loved her - but their relationship was over before it had even begun.

Fast forward a few months and Monday's recent episode (7 April) showed that emotions were still raw for Lucy, who explained that she was hurt with Jamie's carefree attitude, after seeing that he had moved on with different girls within just a week.

Lee's love triangle was the main focus of CBB.

Defending himself today (9 April), Jamie said: "What happened is that Lucy gave me a test and I was not very good at tests. I failed it miserably."

Pregnant Holly then likened Jamie to Celebrity Big Brother's Lee Ryan, who's famous love triangle between Casey Batchelor and Jasmine Waltz hooked the nation earlier this year.

Holly claimed: "You are turning into the Lee Ryan of Chelsea. You loosely say you love people all the time."

Speaking about his use of the words 'I love you', Jamie said: "I think it's because I have a lot of brothers and sisters and there's always been a lot of love and so I get used to it. I'm very needy."

Holly grilled Jamie on This Morning.

There's never a dull moment in Made In Chelsea, but Proudlock says disputes between co-stars doesn't last forever. "Because we've known each other for so long, we all say that we're like a big family," Proudlock explains. "Although relationships change and everyone has their arguments, over time we all come back together."

"We all live in a bubble and we can be vile to each other," Jamie added.

Speaking about her friendship with ex boyfriend Spencer Matthews, Lucy said: "I tolerate him. I'd say that's the word I'd use rather than civil."

Made In Chelsea continues on Monday 14 April at 10pm on E4.
