Last week, on his TOWIE debut, Jake was seen asking Lauren out for a drink and it is believed they then later shared a kiss. But while Lauren is saying the pair did have a smooch, Jake has continued to deny a kiss ever happened.
Since then Lauren has branded Jake "bizarre" and it seems their co-stars - including Jake's ex-girlfriend Chloe Lewis - are less than convinced his side of the story is true.
In last night's episode of the show, viewers saw Jake clash with Lauren yet again over their alleged kiss. Still claiming he didn't pucker up with the 32-year-old, Jake soon felt the wrath of former flame Chloe, Ferne McCann and Billie Faiers as they all sided with Lauren instead.
While Lauren branded the Essex boy "weird" for continuing to lie, Chloe questioned Jake on why Lauren would make up kissing him.
Lauren then suggested she had proof the pair did kiss, telling the Essex boy: "Why don't we get the messages you sent to Vas the next morning panicking, saying 'please tell Lauren not to say anything.'"
Jake then claimed he hadn't sent any messages to Vas, angering Ferne.
Stepping in to support her pal, she said to Jake: "The bottom line is, you're a liar. Don't come over here and say that my friend is a liar. I believe what my friend says... I f****** trust Lauren with my life. You're so embarrassing. Hold your hands up."

Following the show, Lauren took to Twitter to thank her friend for sticking up for her.
She tweeted: "Yet more weird behaviour you got to witness this evening and YES @fernemccann for having my back #towie."
On seeing her message, Ferne then replied: "Always darl."
