And then we’d seen each other at a few parties and stuff, he messaged me on Instagram and then we ended up meeting up a few times on nights out.’
Saffron didn’t hesitate from bringing up Lockie’s former flame Yazmin Oukhellou – Yaz – who Chloe vehemently denies being friends with.
‘Listen Chlo, I’m just talking more as an older girl and I don’t know what’s gone on with you and Yaz. As far as I was aware, you were close friends,’ Saffron remarks.

Chloe replies defensively: ‘I feel like if anyone is close enough to me, they would know that me and Yaz aren’t friends, do you know what I mean?’
She continues to stand her ground, admitting that her and Yaz have blocked each other.
‘We’ve not been years for like a year. We’ve blocked each other’s numbers, so was I in the wrong for going with James? I don’t really think so.’

At the beginning of August, TOWIE bosses were accused of acting ‘irresponsibly’ after cruelly axing 10 young cast members ‘without warning’ despite telling newbies ‘you’ll be a star.’
The devastated group were sacked ahead of the start of the 29th series in hastily arranged meetings, which many wrongly believed were storyline consultations.
MailOnline revealed the brutal cull left the cast ‘distraught’ after they were sold a dream by TV bosses and are now facing financial hardship in incredibly tough economic times.

A talent management source told MailOnline: ‘It has been a challenging two years for most people financially, this was their career and TOWIE effectively sacked a bunch of youngsters from their jobs and for what reason?
‘There was no problem with anyone on the show, they could have given them another six months or the chance to look for other opportunities, but to just fire them all overnight was irresponsible.
‘The cast believed they were meeting producers for a catch-up ahead of filming resuming in August, so everyone was ready and excited with their updates – but without warning they were booted off the show.’
The Only Way Is Essex returns Sunday at 9pm on ITVBe and ITV Hub.
