The couple split back in January this year but in recent weeks had appeared to be growing close again – so close, in fact, that even co-stars were wondering if they're back together.
They aren't… but both seem open to the idea.
But last week, a spanner was thrown in the works when Elliott dropped a bombshell on Chloe (and us viewers!) when he revealed an opportunity to run a restaurant in Marbella had come up and he was going to take it, which meant leaving Essex - and Chloe.
Speaking to the official TOWIE website, he said: "I'm going to Spain. If it's meant to be with me and Chloe, it's meant to be.
"I'm leaving the ball in her court. If she wants to come and see me, that's great. If it works out, I'm happy. I do love her and I have feelings for her. She's an amazing girl. If she comes out and sees me I'll be very happy. If she don't, well, that's it, you move on."
For her part, Chloe doesn't seem to have made up her mind...
On last night's episode, we heard her telling cousin Frankie Essex: "He thinks it could really work out if we lived in Spain together because I would be away from the pressures of Essex. He thinks we could be happy there. He would like us to give it another go. I think we could be happy there as well."
TOWIE airs Wednesdays and Sundays at 10pm on ITVBe.
