On his debut, Jake was seen flirting up a storm with his co-star, asking Lauren out on their first meeting. But after rumours emerged of the pair then sharing a kiss, Jake seemed to backtrack, denying such a smooch ever happened.
While Jake is saying he didn't kiss Lauren, Lauren is sure they definitely did kiss and she wasn't too happy to hear the Essex boy had been dismissing it.
During last night's episode of the show, Jake was first to bring up the kiss with Lauren, telling her Ferne McCann had been asking him whether the pair had locked lips.
While Lauren reassured her co-star it wasn't a a big deal, the kiss was just a "drunken thing", Jake was adamant their 'kiss' never happened.
He told her: "Whether people think I did kiss you or I didn't kiss you, who's business is it anyway? And whatever they've got to say, it doesn't mean nothing to me. In my eyes I didn't."
Brushing rumours of their smooch under the carpet, Jake then went on to ask Lauren out again, asking her to teach him how to DJ. And it's fair to say she was not impressed!
"Hold on a minute, you just completed denied kissing me and now you're asking me to DJ?," she said. "You need to make up your mind."
Jake then said if he had kissed her, he must have been dreaming. Ouch.
Lauren replied: "You are absolutely insane... you're making me look like I've made it up and that's not cool. Don't speak to me."
Glad you all got to share the most bizarre conversation I've ever had! #towie— Lauren Pope (@LaurenPope) March 11, 2015
Still completely confused about Jake's denial, Lauren took to Twitter following the show.
She tweeted: "Glad you all got to share the most bizarre conversation I've ever had! #towie."
So strange, right?!
While Jake has stayed quiet since the episode, Lauren's BFF Vas J Morgan made sure to show his support for his pal, tweeting: "Who would ever deny kissing the beautiful @LaurenPope I'd be shouting that from the roof tops #Towie."
He then joked he would be resigning as matchmaker after initially setting up his bestie with Jake.
Meanwhile, it came to light Jake had stopped ex-girlfriend Chloe Lewis - who made her TOWIE debut along with him - talking to other guys on a recent night out.
The pair have dated for the last six years, with the last three being on and off - could she be the reason why he is denying anything happened between himself and Lauren?!
When told by Ferne McCann that Jake had kissed Lauren, Chloe admitted her former flame had already rang and told her, informing her it wasn't true.
And when Ferne teased Jake that she wants to set Chloe up with Mario Falcone, he wasn't best pleased.
Something tells us things aren't quite over for this former couple just yet!
