Viewers were introduced to Jake early on in Sunday night's (8 March) episode as he met up with pals James 'Arg' Argent and Lewis Bloor outside the gym.
Then, at the end of the episode, his ex-girlfriend Chloe made her entrance at the International Women's Day party.
We predict fireworks going forward…
So, the background on these two is that they've been together for six-and-half years but the last three years have been a bit on and off. They are currently both single having ended their relationship.
But for how long?
Vas J. Morgan is trying to set Jake up with his pal Lauren Pope… Jake seemed quite keen. Very keen, actually! He'd only been talking to Lauren for a minute when he asked her out! Then, ex Chloe made her entrance which was kind of awkward timing…
Jake excused himself from Lauren, saying he had to say hello to Chloe, who was at the bar with Jessica Wright and Ferne McCann.
Cue a quite awkward convo! Jake told Chloe: "I think the time apart has been quite good as you're realising what you're missing out on."
Ferne couldn't believe what she'd heard, saying: "What YOU'RE missing out on!" She pointed out how gorgeous Chloe was looking and Jake didn't disagree.
Jake then went back over to Lauren.
"He is so cocky," said Jessica, saying she reckons Jake knows he had a good thing with Chloe, he's not 100 per cent sure what he wants right now but he knows he doesn't want her to be with anyone else.
We can't imagine Chloe staying single for long though as SO many male heads turned when she walked into that party…
After the episode aired, Jess and Ferne chatted to the official TOWIE website about how they knew Chloe.
"We love that Chloe has joined our group," said Jess. "She is beautiful. We've known her for years. She's a lovely girl."
Jess first met Chloe when they were in a band together years ago. We SO hope someone has that on YouTube somewhere!
Ferne added: "I think she's fab. She's a good friend."
Jess confessed she was rather delighted to have another single lady on the scene, joking: "She could be my new single wing woman!... But I feel there is a lot of love and history between her and Jake. It won't stop me inviting her out on a Saturday night, though! I won't lie!"
TOWIE airs Wednesdays and Sundays at 10pm on ITVBe.
