Fans had been concerned over Alex and Nicola's relationship ahead of Made In Chelsea returning to our screens, and in last night's episode of the show (8 August), Alex finally confirmed that he and Nicola have split.
Oh, and he decided to dump her by text to tell her their romance was over.
Alex had previously told his co-stars that Nicola was busy with work in London and that's why she couldn't make it out to Cannes with the rest of the group for the summer. He then admitted that it was 'nice to have space' away from Nicola and as news surfaced that he had slept with Olivia Bentley following a drunken night out, Alex decided to come clean about their break up.
Speaking about Nicola, Alex said: "No, [we're not together]. We broke up. I basically messaged Nicola the other day and said, 'This is the hardest thing in the world, but it's done.'"
Francis Boulle then joked that it was 'good of Alex to do it by text', but hitting back Alex said: "Some people may say it was cowardly, others may not."
As the boys continued to joke with him, Alex said: "I'm actually not enjoying your conversation here, it's been a bit sh*t for me."
Addressing his night with Olivia, he added: "I do slightly regret it. It's not the best move."
Alex later met with Olivia to talk over their night together, and he explained that he is 'annoyed at himself' for sleeping with her.
Liv seemed to understand and said: "Breaking up with somebody and jumping into bed with somebody else looks savage."
Alex said: "I do still have a lot of feelings for her so it makes it a bit tougher."
Liv tried to reassure him that their hook up was "no big deal", she said: "It's sex. I know you want to respect Nicola, but I don't think you should work yourself up about all of this. It was a drunken stupid night, a lot of people do do it.
"It was just a one night thing, a bit of fun, a moment of madness."
Made In Chelsea: South of France continues Monday 15 August at 10pm on ITVBe.
