The reality star took his mind off recent woes with a glam night out in London, attending a celebrity event at The Stamp on Thursday night (6 November).
Dressed in casual jeans and a smart navy jumper, the star looked in high spirits as he walked the purple carpet at the Mediaskin Gifting Lounge.
We're sure Ricky's mum Jan was happy to see her son smiling again after she flew from Florida to Essex last week to comfort him.
Viewers watched Ricky breaking down in tears as he spoke with Jan about the relationship break up, saying even though he had seen it coming, it was hard after two and a half years together.
He later became emotional again as he met with Jess in private for the first time since their break up, reading her a letter in which he said he'd always love her despite their relationship ending.
Ricky told Jessica: "I want to apologise for messaging another girl and I'm deeply regretful for disrespecting you. It's a shame how things turned out but you'll agree there was trouble in paradise and we've been arguing and not getting on for a long time.
"I'm losing a massive part of my life and it scares me. I really don't think I would be good enough for you or your family and I don't think I'll ever meet the expectations you have, but I know what an amazing, talented beautiful girl you are and you will find someone better than me who will treat you like the princess you are.
"I will never forget you. I love you and always will. I'm sorry for putting you through s**t."
We then watched as Jessica and Ricky hugged and parted ways.
