Jake was hospitalised over Bank Holiday Weekend after an alleged stabbing incident during a night out in Marbella, and ex-girlfriend Chloe was among the loved ones who flocked to his bedside.
It did lead to suggestions the former couple may be giving things another go, but in Sunday night's The Only Way Is Majorca, Chloe confirmed she is single.
Chloe told the girls: "Jake got hurt and I was in the same country as him so went to see him and all my feelings came back and I thought, 'Oh my God, what have I done?' But I'm single and happy and everyone keeps saying, 'You're a happier person now.' You don't notice it in yourself but I am."
The couple split at the end o f the 17th series following a rocky few months that included dealing with a rumour Jake once slept with Megan McKenna. Although Jake and Megan vehemently denied it, Chloe found it too hard to move on from.
"You have absolutely ruined my life. I'm gutted," Chloe told him. "I'm absolutely gutted this rumour came about. This is not where I saw my life going at all. I'm gutted. I wanted to give you another chance. This isn't what I want but I don't have a choice. I'm not being mugged off anymore. I'm not that person."
Jake, meanwhile, told her: "It's been a week now and I've had my time to think. I now realise me and you can't be together. This relationship isn't good for you. If I loved you I would let you go."
Although Jake was in Majorca when series 18 began filming, he will not appear on camera as he continues to recover from his injuries.
