Fans of the Essex-based drama saw Mario gifting Chloe with flowers and a smart picture frame (pretty much featuring a huge image of him!) for her birthday on last night's episode… and the ex-couple exchange a rather lingering look.
Mario even jokingly said: "You miss me, you get to have me in your house all the time."
Hmm… could romance brew once again?!
Chloe and Mario enjoyed a short fling earlier this year – a fling they managed to keep secret from friends and viewers until after it was over. Despite it not working out, they remained close friends.
Now, it seems plenty of fans are hoping to see a new romance play out on screen. Following last night's sweet scene, viewers took to Twitter to back a Chloe/Mario relationship.
"I hope Mario and Chloe get together," wrote one, while another said: "I think Mario and Chloe would make a good couple!" A third simply said: "Mario and Chloe would be perfect together."
A few also pointed out that One Direction's track 'Steal My Girl' started playing after Chloe hugged Mario and gave him a kiss on the cheek. The next scene featured Chloe's ex-boyfriend Elliott Wright.
Sending us a message there, TOWIE producers?!
Well done to #TOWIE producers for playing Steal My Girl when Mario is with Chloe and then the next scene is Elliot. Heroes.— Daniel Gibson (@Dan_Gibson365) November 9, 2014

I wanna see Chloe and Mario together :) they would make such an amazing couple! #towie— Regan Shaw (@ReganShawxx) November 9, 2014
It was only on last week's episode that a tearful Chloe finally said her relationship with Elliott was over. The couple's brief but intense pairing came to an after Chloe discovered Elliott had allowed a female friend to stay over at his house and she slept in his bed, even though he said nothing happened.
Does this mean Chloe and Mario could give their romance another go?
Or is Chloe gonna have some 'me' time for a while? Hmm...
TOWIE continues Wednesday night on ITVBe.
