Viewers know Kate Wright has accused her co-star of wanting her and Dan to break up so Chloe can swoop in and comfort him, but Chloe strongly denied that.
Last night, the rumour reared its ugly head again as Kate told Chloe she'd heard that during a club appearance, Chloe had been flirting with Dan. And Tommy Mallet backed that up.
An incredulous Chloe replied: "[Dan] thinks I was flirting with him? I thought he was flirting with me, I'm not going to lie."
Kate jumped on that comment, saying: "You said it was a friendly conversation [before], so you're contradicting yourself which is why I think it's pointless to have this conversation."
When Courtney Green interrupted to say nothing had happened, Kate replied: "It's nothing to do with what happened. It's whether I can trust what you say… This is about my boyfriend and I want to get to the bottom of it."
Tommy's girlfriend Georgia Kousoulou also got involved, saying Tommy wouldn't make things up, so he must have seen something.
Chloe said she was "stressed" by the whole situation and didn't want to spoil the girls' weekend away that Megan McKenna had planned. She said: "I don't think we need to be best friends but it would be good if we could get on."
Privately, she told Courtney she wasn't excited about the girls' weekend in Suffolk. The girls said they couldn't understand what Tommy thought he'd seen, with Courtney saying Chloe was "the shiest girl when it comes to guys. It's all a load of rubbish."
