In the last episode we saw Nicole and Lewis meet up, where he told her that he wanted her back and was keen to prove that he was a changed man.
The pair were together for eight months last year, but they split as Nicole was unimpressed with Lewis' behaviour. Lewis, who admitted he isn't the same person now as he was then, said Nicole would be "foolish" not to give him a second chance.
Speaking about meeting up with Lewis, Nicole said in a new video on the TOWIE website: "I was a bit nervous but I thought it was great to be honest. It's nice to get everything out in the open and clear it up.
"Lewis hurt me a lot last year so that's why we are just friends. If in the future I saw a massive change and I liked him then I'd be fully in my right to give it another go."
And while Lewis has a while to go to get back in her good books, the other boy that has caught her eye is newcomer Michael Hassini.
The pair met in Marbella and they've already shared a kiss - something which has angered Lewis, especially as he has past history with Michael.
"Mike's a great boy," said Nicole. "I met him in Marbella, he's been a great friend. We had a little moment, a little kiss, but we are just friends. I don't know him well enough to compare him and to put a judgment on it. I'd need to wait and see if Lewis has changed and to see if there is a future there."
