However, despite their split being quite bitter, Jessica still has fond memories of their relationship.

When asked by DJ Sarah-Jane Crawford to recall her best ever date, Jessica spoke about hers and Ricky's trip to Paris, earlier this year.

She said: "I would say Paris. It wasn't a date as such but it was a Valentine's Day present. It was nice."

Meanwhile, Jessica also confessed that she has got high standards when it comes to potential suitors - and bad breath and arrogance are big no nos!

"I like someone who makes me laugh and I hate flashness and arrogance," Jessica revealed. "I literally can't stand it - it puts me off straight away.

"They've got to be clean and not have bad breath. I like family-orientated guys who know how to have a laugh and who are down to earth. They've got to be sociable."

She added: "I've always been the person who wants boys to approach me, but lately I've found that I would rather talk and get to know someone first rather than them just come up and give me their number.

"I just like a nice person. I think, when you meet someone, you can always tell what they're like within 24 hours. I've got good judgement…I think I've got good judgment!"

Jessica has another rule too: "I don't kiss on a first date," she laughed. "Maybe a peck on the cheek...but you've got to keep the class."

So who are Jess's secret celebrity crushes?

Before she wrapped up her appearance on the radio show, Jessica revealed: "I would say Chase Crawford. Leo DiCaprio was always a favourite of mine - but he's got a bit old!"

Next week, Jessica will be back on our screens for the TOWIE Christmas special, The Only Way Is Essexmas, which airs at 10pm on Wednesday 10 December on ITVBe.
