TOWIE star Elliott spent the evening with his mother last night (6 November) and no doubt she provided a good ear for listening and a shoulder to cry on following the break-up.
The previous night, TOWIE fans watched as Chloe broke down in tears after bumping into Elliott at the cast's bonfire party, held at Georgia Kousoulou's house.
Despite previously wooing her with a birthday gift and flowers, Chloe emotionally told Elliott that she was not prepared to give their failed relationship another go.
Elliott had told his ex that he wanted to try again, but she told him: "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."
The couple began dating in early summer but their relationship came to an end after five months, when it emerged Elliott had let another woman sleep in his bed following a night out.
Yesterday evening, Elliott joined his mum and other family members for a quiet meal and together they posed for a new Instagram picture.
Explaining how much he loves her, Elliott commented on the snap: "Dinner with the family.... Can't express words for this woman #Mum."
