No more teasers or countdowns were needed, as Monday night (14 September) saw Ollie catch up with his best friend Binky Felstead, who headed back to Chelsea after relationship woes with Josh 'JP' Patterson in Los Angeles.
Ever the great friend, Ollie was on hand to listen to Binky's recent heartbreak after JP told her he didn't want to be in a relationship.
Cue Ollie to make it all better. As Binky filled him in on the drama, Ollie listened so intently that we remembered another thing we very much missed about him - his facial expressions!
After finding out Binky slept with JP just days before he cooled off their potential romance, Ollie was on the phone to his former flame and Binky's BFF Gabriella Ellis (who now resides in LA) to give her the lowdown.
Things only escalated from there, as Gabriella told the girls and Louise Thompson was soon on the warpath determined to give JP a piece of her mind. JP was accused of 'stringing' Binky along and Alex Mytton claimed JP had been texting other girls while spending time with Binky in LA.
This didn't go down too well at all. But, JP insisted all was not as it seemed, telling a raging Louise: "There were a couple of girls, but the minute things got serious again, those conversations ended. When Binky and I have been committed I have not messaged anyone at all."
All this drama, and Ollie wasn't even at the centre of it!
