The pals were pictured taking a walk through an Essex park on Tuesday, 17 March, looking deep in conversation.
It's been a pretty explosive series of TOWIE for both.
Mario's current relationship with model Emma McVey is on the rocks and he's been flirting up a storm with newbie Chloe Lewis, although won't ask her out because he's not a single man.
Lauren, meanwhile, shared a kiss with Chloe's ex-boyfriend, fellow newcomer Jake Hall, only for him to deny it happened, call her a liar and then eventually admit that yes, she had been telling the truth.
On last night's episode of the show, we saw Mario bumping into Chloe at the gym and getting all shy, prompting his friend Ricky Rayment to say that must mean Mario really likes her.
Later on, however, we saw Jake visiting Chloe at home to seemingly ask if she wanted to give their relationship another go.
Chloe then jetted off to Dubai to clear her head.
So much drama...
TOWIE airs Wednesdays and Sundays at 10pm on ITVBe.
