Chloe and Lauren's friendship has been through a lot of ups and downs, but after reconciling following a bitter seven-month fallout, viewers recently saw the pair admit that their friendship isn't what it used to be.
Mutual friend Vas has been stuck in the middle of their fallout, and while speaking on BBC's 1Xtra today, Vas revealed his excitement at the arrival of new cast member Jake Hall, who made a dramatic entrance during last night's episode.
Fashion designer Vas said he is pleased Jake now stars on the show, as he was finding it difficult splitting his time between Chloe and Lauren.
"I've got a new friend [Jake] other than Chloe and Lauren," Vas explained. "
"It's so volatile and they don't get on and I've got to split my time between them. Lauren is my best friend and my priority. But they would never make me feel uncomfortable and make me want to choose."
Speaking about his debut, Vas explained why it was the perfect time for him to appear on the show's 12th series last year.
"This is my third season now," he said. "I was really close friends with Lauren for a while and she just fell out with Chloe and she never had a friend to lean on for a while."
Meanwhile, last week, Lauren admitted she and Chloe have "drfited" apart. She added: "As you get older you're not always going to stay best friends with everyone, but as long as there's no tension then it's fine."
