TOWIE star Ricky laid down his track during the festive Only Way Is Essexmas episode before later joking with Mario Falcone that he hoped to beat ex-girlfriend Jessica - who has released three singles - in the charts.
However, it appears this comment didn't go down well with Jessica's mum Carol.
After the episode had aired, Carol - who shares her Twitter account with Nanny Pat - replied to a fan who had asked if Ricky and Jessica would ever record a duet together.
"Wonder if @RickyRatment and @MissJessWright_ will do a duet? Na na na na," he asked. Carol then replied: "Na na na as he can't sing haha."
Carol has since deleted the tweet - but not before Ricky had clocked it with his own eyes. He replied to his ex's mum: '@nannypat_carol @missjesswright_ not surprised by this tweet."
Some fans also spotted it, with one blasting: "You're so rude! Your daughter + her ex boyfriend are getting along fine+ YOU are being the child."
Ricky has decided to release his single to raise money for charity and also reassured fans that he is not hoping to become a serious recording artist.
"I'm not that easy na na na it's all for charity!! Chill out! People take like too seriously these days!!" he said.
Meanwhile, Ricky was seen coming face-to-face with Jessica during last night's Christmas special. The couple split in October, however they have agreed to put their differences aside.
In fact, they even hugged it out! Clearly Jess doesn't have an issue with his new musical venture...
