Over recent episodes of the ITVBe show, viewers have watched the once blissfully happy couple fall apart, following revelations that Elliott had allowed a female friend to crash at his house after a night out.
Although he insisted nothing had happened between them, Chloe was unhappy about claims the girl had spent the night in Elliott's bed.
On last night's episode, we saw birthday girl Chloe telling her friends that her last argument with Elliott had cleared the air for her and she now saw it as a real break-up.
"Everything has been so negative lately. I want to have my birthday and have a fresh start."
Elliott, however, was hoping to woo Chloe back.
After listening to James Lock tell him that maybe Chloe was special and worth fighting for (as Elliott's reaction to the break-up had been out of character for him), Elliott crashed Chloe's birthday lunch.
Gifting her with flowers, he publicly declared in front of her guests: "I can't change what has been done. What I do know is that I love you. I can't change that. If we can get away from all the bulls**t and move on and have a clean, fresh start, that's what I would love."
Later at the cast bonfire night party, however, it emerged Chloe wasn't quite on the same page, as she told Lauren Pope she was "almost freaking out and panicking" as Elliott seemed to think they were back together.
When Elliott joined their conversation, Chloe told him: "I am freaking out a little bit because you appear to be the Elliott I fell in love with but I'm freaking out again. I don't wanna have doubts. I want to be into something 100% sure."
Elliott replied: "For this to work it has to be from both sides. If you can't forget what's gone on it won't work and there's no point in me putting the effort in."
But unfortunately for him, Chloe couldn't be swayed.
Breaking down in tears, she said it was a "hard" decision but: "I just don't think I can. I am upset because I do love you and I will miss you but I don't think this is for me. I don't think it's right. Too much has happened."
