TOWIE's Chloe Lewis has told Reveal things are going "really well" with Essex co-star Ben Shenel… despite the "embarrassment" they've both endured after *that* rumour about fellow castmember Dan Edgar.

TOWIE: Chloe Lewis and Ben Shenel double date
14 October


Chloe and Ben.

Viewers will know Chloe was accused of making a flirtatious remark about Dan, which wound up some of the Essex women including Georgia Kousoulou and Dan's ex-girlfriend Kate Wright, 25.

Chloe vehemently denied it and told Reveal it had been a bit awkward as she's been getting on "really well" with TOWIE newcomer Ben.

"I felt bad when everyone kept going on about the Dan thing. I said to Kate, 'I'm talking to Ben and it's actually really embarrassing for him.' She then accused me of seeing all of Ben's mates!" said Chloe.

"I've never met them. I got quite upset because she was trying to make me look so bad, and all I was trying to do was make amends."

Chloe, who has patched up her differences with Georgia, 25, added of her blossoming romance with Ben: "[It's going] really well. Ben is a real gentleman, and we speak every day, but I'm not looking to get into a relationship. It's strange to be dating again."

The 25-year-old's last relationship was with former co-star Jake Hall, 26. They were together nearly eight years before splitting earlier this year.

Jake is now dating Real Housewives star Missé Beqiri.

"It helps me move on. Now that I wanted to get back with Jake, but knowing he's with someone else makes it final," Chloe told us. "Everyone says me and Missé look alike, but I don't think so. She's a model, so I take it as a compliment. Jake and I don't talk at all any more. It's weird how you can go from being so close to someone to being complete strangers."
