In scenes to air on tonight's episode of the ITVBe show, he learns from Mario that Jess has apparently told pals Ricky told her before Christmas he didn't think things were over.
Ricky laughs when he hears. He admits he and Jess had a "kiss" before Christmas but just a kiss.
Ricky says: "That is such bulls**t. It winds me up. If I wanted to pursue that and wanted her back I could have her back. She wouldn't admit that. She will sit there say it's over. Now we're talking five months later, she'll sit there and say that. I have moved on, I'm happy, I am loving my life."
Ricky is currently dating Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson, who he met a National Television Awards after-show in January.
Jess, meanwhile, said this weekend she's happy to be single.
On tonight's episode, we'll also see Mario telling Ricky he thinks he overheard Gemma Collins suggesting Jessica had kissed someone during her holiday to Las Vegas.
Ricky says he doesn't care, but adds: "I always knew she was a hypocrite. She likes to make herself look innocent and sweet and turn the tears on. I'm sure she's kept more than one secret from me, as I have from her.
"Cut the s**t. You have what you wanted. None of your family wanted me there anyway. Let's just crack on. I'm happy, you're happy. Good."
Wow. We wonder what Jess will say?
We thought Ricky and Jess had sorted their differences during the Christmas special, with Ricky saying afterwards he was glad to clear the air and would always hold a special place in his heart for Jess.
But then pictures this week emerged of the ex-couple apparently rowing while out walking their dogs...
