The TOWIE stars often claim everybody knows everybody in Essex... and sometimes that really does seem to be true!

On last night's episode, viewers learned that fellow newcomers, Ex On The Beach star Megan McKenna and Love Island's Jon Clark, actually have a history, having met abroad before their paths crossed on The Only Way Is Essex.

Such a small world!

While Megan and Pete Wicks were on a double date with Jon and Chloe Sims, Megan revealed she knew Jon from their "Marbella days."

"We worked together," she explained. "Well, no. I worked for a club, he worked for a club, but we worked at the same strip. I was at a club in my bikini and I wore chicken fillets to make my boobs look bigger and I lost one."

Guess who had it?

Yep. Jon!

"I stole it off you and was walking around with a chicken fillet all day," he recounted.

Ah the good old days!
