Throughout the last series of The Only Way Is Essex, viewers watched as Ferne and Jake continuously came to blows. After Jake lied to then-former flame Chloe about kissing Lauren Pope, he and Ferne have never seen eye-to-eye.
Despite their fiery encounters though, Chloe has now claimed the pair aren't as against each other as we all first thought. Speaking exclusively to Reveal, she said: "I think they do get on."
Chloe's comment came as a surprise to us as back in April, Ferne made it very clear to Reveal she didn't like Essex boy Jake.
"I'm not one to hold grudges, but I just don't like [Jake], really," she told us. "I've never actually met anyone like him."
Even though she claims to not be a fan of her co-star, Chloe - who is now exclusively back on with Jake - revealed Ferne and her boyfriend did seem amicable when both were reunited in Marbella, but only when she wasn't around.
"I saw them getting on together on holiday," Chloe said. "I think when I'm not around, Ferne is more easy on Jake. When I'm around, that's when there's problems. I don't know why that is, I don't know if she feels like she has to prove something."
With Ferne the hot topic of conversation, TOWIE star Tommy Mallet couldn't resist sharing his thoughts on his co-star. And his tirade about Ferne has us wondering if the pair had a bit of a barny out in Marbs...
Criticising Ferne's involvement in Chloe and Jake's relationship last series, Tommy said: "Ferne McCann hasn't got much going on in her life. Charlie [Sims] dumped her so at the minute all she does is get involved with other people's business.
"The thing is, she saw Chloe and Jake in a bad place so she thought she'd get involved in it. That is why Ferne McCann doesn't have a boyfriend and she's just out every night partying at the age she is at now. She's going back in time now, instead of going forward. She's quite irrelevant."
24-year-old Ferne, meanwhile, has always insisted her fallout with Jake was because she was being a good friend to Chloe. She claimed she always listened to what Chloe had to say about her ex-beau, but wasn't afraid to voice her opinion of him to her pal, as she always had Chloe's best interests at heart.
Following her split with Charlie early this year, Ferne had told us she was excited to be single for the first time in three years. Not ruling out a holiday romance during her stay in Marbella, she insisted she "wouldn't say no" if she met someone she fancies. Although, Ferne did admit she hasn't got time to start dating again just yet after launching her own clothing collection, working on her blog and training for various sporting events.
We wonder why Tommy has such a bee in his bonnet about her?
Maybe all will be revealed as TOWIE returns to screens on Sunday night. Fans will get to see all the action from Marbella, with the cast then joining Mark Wright after the show to share even more gossip on All Back To Essex.
TOWIE returns Sunday 14 June at 10pm on ITVBe.
