Chloe Brockett has revealed in an exclusive interview with Closer Online that she had a huge falling out with Yazmin Oukhellou that didn't air on TV.

The reality stars were friends last year but months after Yaz and James James 'Lockie' Lock split, it came to light that he had a fling with Chloe.

Yaz has since returned to TOWIE and spoken to both James and Chloe about their romance and all seems well between them.

However during our chat with Chloe she revealed that she actually had an argument with Yaz late last year that wasn't shown on TV.

"[Me and Yaz ] were still friends until a year ago. We fell out and then we didn't speak. As far as I was concerned she was living in a different country - quite far away - and had another boyfriend.

"So I just thought we're not friends, she moved on so is it going to affect her? Probably not."

She went on, "I hope she knows that I didn't do anything malicious or to hurt her.

"If we were around each other there wouldn't be a screaming because I don't feel any way towards her and I would assume she doesn't feel the same either."

However, when we asked Chloe more about their falling out, she admitted, "We fell out around the same time she fell out with Amber [Turner]. Her and Amber fell out over silly things.

"Then one night me and Amber were on a night out together and the girls [subsequently axed TOWIE stars Courtney Green and Chloe Meadows] were on a night out with Yaz.

"Me and Amber invited Courtney and Chloe back to Amber's for a party and we didn't invite Yaz because we didn't speak - so why would we?

"With that Yaz took it the wrong way and got the hump with us and I can understand why – but also we're not friends."

James first went public with Yazmin in 2017, a year after he split from Danielle, and their high-profile relationship was quite the rollercoaster ride. They split in 2019 when Yaz accused him of cheating on her while on holiday. "To cut a long story short it was 4am and he wasn't with me in bed. He was in a room with two boys he met around the pool and three girls," she said on TOWIE at the time. Lockie denied cheating when he told co-star Georgia Kousoulou, "I didn't cheat. What happened is I've just gone out and I've put myself into situations that I shouldn't have been in."Lockie and Yaz later rekindled their relationship but called it quits for good after a series of rows while on holiday in Dubai. Confirming the split at the start of this year, Yaz told OK!, "James and I have split up amicably. I love James but we're not good together. It couldn't go on the way it was so I told James we should end things and he agreed."Following their split, Yaz quit TOWIE and moved to Dubai to pursue a new career as a real estate agent. However, she made a shock return to the show last month to confront her ex over his fling with her former friend Chloe Brockett.

James sparked rumours he was dating aesthetics clinic owner and influencer Ellie after his first split with Yazmin when they were pictured kissing. However, he's previously denied they were ever an item.He told the Daily Mail, "It was a nothing thing, it was never going to be anything serious. She's not someone I was seeing, she's not my girlfriend, everyone was saying 'James' new girlfriend,' she's not my new girlfriend. It was something casual. "There won't be a second date, I won't be pursuing her. She's not a bit of me. I've been getting it in the ear from my mum saying she's not for me!"

This Greek God. "He did say one thing to me, he actually said, 'Alison you're my perfect girlfriend, personality-wise'. I was absolutely devastated. So I went to the gym and worked out. So personality-wise I'm his perfect girl!"

In one of the biggest shocks in recent TOWIE history, it came to light earlier this year that James had enjoyed a summer fling with his co-star Chloe Brockett. The pair hooked up multiple times but decided to remain friends instead of taking their relationship any further. Lockie and Chloe's fling quickly became the talk of Essex, with the 20 year old having a blazing row with Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell after he spread rumours about the relationship and Lockie's ex and Chloe's former friend Yazmin returning to confront him. Chloe also revealed Yaz had blocked her.

James' most recent ex is Love Island star Megan Barton-Hanson. They met while filming the upcoming series of Celebrity Ex on the Beach and continued to date when they headed back to Blighty, although they did admit that they wanted to take things slow.Despite loads of PDAs, they sadly called it a day just before Christmas after they argued during a Christmas trip to New York.Even though James insisted that they were never 'officially' together and were just good pals, they gave their romance another go after he surprised Megan with a romantic trip away for her 28th birthday in March. Fast forward about two weeks, though, and Lockie confirmed they have split for good and are now just friends. Phew. However, there were reports that Megan was "upset" about the separation, with a source telling OK!, "She knows it's for the best and they've realised the best thing for them to do is to call it a day."The source acknowledged this saying, "Friends of the couple said that they have this weird connection and they can't keep away from each other, so they wouldn't be surprised if they got back together."But things hit a rough patch and they broke up after two months. In a Instagram Q&A, Megan was asked the reasons why the pair had called it a day and answered that things just 'didn't work out between them'.However they've since reunited. Stay tuned.

"It was all immature really. I'm fine the way things are and we don't speak and that's okay," she added.

TOWIE viewers recently saw Yaz and Chloe come face to face and, surprisingly, it went down well.

There was no screaming match, no snide comments... However the series is ongoing so there's still time.

Late last year, Yaz and Amber decided to take a break from their friendship after the latter broke down in tears to Dan Edgar and admitted she didn't feel that Yaz supported her business venture.

After Yaz found out (from Courtney and Chloe Meadows) she confronted Amber and told her that she felt that she had to "walk on egg shells" around her.

They agreed to pause their friendship but their feud spilled out on social media and they ended up unfollowing each other on Instagram.
