Oops! Chris quickly recovered, though, and insisted he meant he could see himself falling in love with Amber. He wasn't just yet. Yeah, yeah...
Chris had been discussing Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell's antics in Palma, Mallorca with his brother Jon Clark and Gatsby's mums. When Gatsby's mum admitted dating was a lot different in her time, Chris agreed and revealed he'd sparked up a romance with Amber (who has just joined TOWIE this series) over Instagram.
He said: "I found Amber and we started messaging over Instagram, but I suppose that's the different generations."
Gushing about Georgia Kousoulou's BFF, Chris then added: "I'm looking forward to what's going to happen, it's only going to go one way pretty much. From my end anyway because I love her..."
Stopping abruptly after realising what he said, Chris' bombshell got quite the reaction from his brother Jon. He leapt from his seat and couldn't resist laughing.
When Gatsby asked Chris if he does love Amber, he replied: "I reckon I could."
That got Jon a little worked up and he told his younger brother: "You can't tell them and not tell me you're in love. I didn't even know!"
Reassuring him that he hadn't left Jon in the dark, Chris hit back: "I said I could potentially fall in love with her. Let me finish!"
Hmm... we don't know about you, but we don't recall him saying could first time around. Sound like someone is a pretty smitten kitten!
Following the episode, Chris took to Twitter and told his followers: "Nearly said the love word already #TOWIE."
While he did add a few crying with laughter emoijs, he also posted a slew of smiley faces too. N'aww.

Chris first revealed he was dating ahead of TOWIE's new series hitting our screens, gushing about Amber he told fans that he thinks she is a "solid ten out of ten" and claimed she was the "girl of his dreams."
Amber, meanwhile, has said that things are going "really well" for herself and Chris. She admitted that the pair haven't yet put a label on their relationship, but like Chris it sounds like she has high hopes for their romance.
"There's a lot of pressure on whether or not we're official, but we're seeing each other and seeing how it goes," Amber said. "From the way it's going at the moment, I'm sure it will be."
TOWIE continues Sunday 24 July at 10pm on ITVBe.
