In what Ferne initially called an "awkward" encounter, she revealed in a conversation with Bobby Norris on the TOWIE website that she didn't expect to meet the new woman in his life.
"He had his new girlfriend there at the party," Ferne explained. "That was a bit awkward wasn't it? Well, it wasn't awkward but obviously we are friends with Chloe Sims, so it was all a bit like... 'This is my new bird'."
Ferne said she would, however, be visiting Elliott's new restaurant when the cast head out to Marbella this weekend.
"Well he's got his new restaurant, that's what we were talking about being fellow foodies," Ferne said. "I definitely think we should give it a little visit."
The last time viewers saw Elliott was in the second episode of series 15. Elliott and Chloe Sims rekindled their on-off romance in the Spanish city in June, where he has been living since the beginning of this year after relocating to launch his new restaurant, Olivia's La Cala.
However, they were not back together for good and were just enjoying each other's company. Elliott also quit TOWIE towards the end of June after two years on the show.
Chloe revealed earlier this month that she's no longer in contact with Elliott, saying it wasn't healthy to be talking to each other as they both tried to move on with their lives.
But, Chloe said she was happy for her co-stars to visit his restaurant in Marbs.
Chloe explained: "The last time he tried to contact me I didn't answer, to be honest, so after ignoring his call it definitely wouldn't be okay to turn up at the restaurant. When exes keep going in each other's space it's a bit weird. But I'm happy for everyone else to go! I'll just have a takeaway for one!"
