The reality star - who split from boyfriend and former co-star Ricky Rayment last year - spoke about her time on the programme ahead of the new series starting this weekend.
She confessed: "It's always hard to have a relationship on camera, and I know I've had more fun on the show when I've not been in a relationship."
We wonder if Jess will stay single this series? On the last series, we saw her getting flirty with newbie Pete Wicks, and they've been seen filming together in Marbella over the past week.
A source told The Mirror: "Jess and Pete have been growing close for a while but while they keep on insisting their relationship was purely platonic, things really heated up in Marbella. They shared a kiss but it looks like the holiday romance could be one that comes home with them."
Jessica said she had the most fun when filming with co-stars Bobby Cole Norris, Ferne McCann, Billie Faiers and Danielle Armstrong, saying: "We just always have such a laugh."
She also said although she thinks drama and humour make a good TOWIE, she prefers the latter: "For me, funny times on TOWIE are the best."
TOWIE returns on Sunday, 4 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
