TOWIE star Chris Clark has opened up about his secret girlfriend Amber, saying they hope to avoid the show's love "curse."

The last time we saw Chris on screen, he had been trying to woo fellow newcomer Courtney Green, before they agreed to just be friends.

Then, in May, Chris - who joined the show earlier this year with his brother, Love Island's Jon, revealed he's been quietly dating someone else, but kept schtum on details.

Now, ahead of the 18th series starting this weekend, he's given us a bit more info on his mystery lady, who is called Amber.

Discussing his highlight of the past year, Chris said: "Meeting my girlfriend Amber. I've been seeing her since about March. We've spoken about avoiding the TOWIE curse and said the main thing we need to do is communicate.

"If we talk to each other and are open about things then nothing can catch us off guard. Trust and communication is key. If you don't have either of those, you'll fail both in TOWIE and in life."

He didn't say whether we'll be seeing Amber on screen!

Chris also said his most awkward moment of series 17 was trying to woo Courtney, but admitted it worked out well in end, as he's happy with Amber now.

"Probably my failing attempt with Courtney which was probably a blessing in disguise," he said. "It was quite awkward when Jon and I refused to clean Chloe and Courtney's windows."

TOWIE returns to ITVBe on Sunday, 17 July at 10pm on ITVBe.
