TOWIE star Chloe was said to have puckered up to Calum for a passionate smooch following a swanky charity dinner in Surrey, which she had attended with cousin Frankie Essex.
The mum-of-one was also snapped sitting on Calum's knee during the event, while wearing his dinner jacket draped over her low-cut dress.
However, although onlookers claim the pair were later seen getting it on, Chloe has insisted their 'snog' was just a friendly peck before they headed home - separately.
Chloe's tells Reveal: "Calum and I were just sharing an innocent kiss goodbye."
A rep for Calum also insisted: "Chole and Calum have been friends for ten years. He was pleased to bump into her at the event.
"They were in the car park kissing each other goodbye at the end of the party and went their separate ways."
Chloe is currently appearing in the new series of TOWIE, which launched earlier this month. The Chloe's Beauty Bar owner has, however, been increasingly unlucky in love.
Fans of the ITVBe show will know she had a brief fling with co-star Jon Clark earlier this year, however she soon called time on the romance after deciding she was too mature for him.
Most recently, Calum, has been linked to US Playboy model Lindsey Pelas.
TOWIE continues on Sunday night, at 10pm on ITVBe.
