Preview pictures for this evening's episode of the Essex drama suggest Ricky's been feeling more emotional about the break up than he's been letting on.
Viewers will watch Ricky visiting his mum Jan Rayment for some advice, and looking tearful as he hugs her goodbye.
During the episode, we'll see Ricky reaching out to Jessica for the first time since their shock split, suggesting it's time for them to meet up and talk in private.
Their two-year romance unraveled on screen after Jessica discovered flirty tweets that Ricky had sent to another woman. Although Ricky said nothing had happened, Jessica dumped him.
Ricky later told his guy pals that he'd actually been waiting for Jessica to mess up so he could end their relationship, branding the Essex beauty "boring" and even divulging they hadn't been having sex recently.
As you'd expect, Jess was not happy.
It appears their romance is done and dusted for now, but on tonight's episode we'll see what happens when they come face to face to discuss things. As the preview pictures show, we can expect tears from Jessica…
Elsewhere, we'll see a run in between Ricky's mum Jan and Jessica's mum Carol Wright, who bump into each other at the supermarket.
Will the two matriarchs be able to discuss their kids' love life calmly or will it descend into fireworks?
TOWIE continues tonight on ITVBe.
