We all know that Lauren and Jake shared a kiss earlier this series, but a rumour began sweeping Essex last week that they'd also spent the night together…
It was Jake's ex-girlfriend Chloe Lewis who brought his attention to the rumour, and on last night's episode of TOWIE, we saw Jake asking Lauren if she was the one who started it.
Lauren told the official website: "I was massively offended that Jaek thought I would start the rumour because why anyone would start a rumour they slept with him I do not know!"
She added: "This new rumour is draining the life out of me. I just feel like it's all very kiddy and stuff that would happen when you're at school… I've got bigger and better things to concern myself with in life than Jake Hall!"
Lauren told Jake outright last night she didn't start the rumour, saying: "Of course I haven't said it! Get over yourself. Are you joking? Why on earth would I make that up? It was mortifying enough people think we kissed, now people thinking we slept together… it's embarrassing!"
Jake told Lauren that he was trying to get Chloe back – as we all know – and this rumour was "another spanner in the works".
However, it doesn't seem that spanner has entirely wrecked his chances with Chloe...
After making a surprise visit to Wales on last night's episode to crash her girls' holiday, he ended up taking a beach walk with Chloe and getting a kiss after running into the freezing cold sea to prove his love.
Chloe has told us the ex-couple are still "just friends" for now.. but it looks like it could all be heading in the right direction for Jake.
