They dated for six and half years before splitting and both started the current series of TOWIE single – but it's been clear to viewers over the last few episodes that Jake wants Chloe back.
And last night, on her return from Dubai, he told her.
"It was nice to see him but on the other hand, obviously, we needed to talk and it was emotional. When he was telling me how he felt it does hurt because I've been with him a long time," she told the official TOWIE website.
"I don't really know. I just don't want to be hurt again and put in that situation again. Who knows… When he said he wouldn't give up on me, it does hurt. It does get to me. It's all very confusing and stressful. At the end of the day, he is the one who did wrong and I'm the one who had to deal with it."
Jake caught up with Chloe on last night's episode as she left the club early feeling jetlagged from her flight home. He immediately asked if she'd hooked up with any guys in Dubai – the answer was no – and why she'd blocked him on WhatsApp.
Chloe said Jake had been annoying her, prompting him to say: "The day I stop trying to ring you, stop trying to drive you mad is the day I don't care anymore. If it's just talk I wouldn't be driving myself mad every day about you. I've been driving myself mad about you for six and a half years."
That didn't seem to impress Chloe who said he obviousl didn't care because he'd kissed Lauren Pope and lied about it – she's also heard rumours that he slept with Lauren.
"Slept with Lauren?!" replied Jake. "F**k off. Are you joking? Alright Chloe, don't even chat s**t. That's absolute b*llocks and lies. Don't start."
Jake insisted Chloe's the only one he wants and managed to get a hug from her before she said she needed to go home….
What will happen next?!
