Jessica, 29, and Ricky, 24, split at the end of last year, and he’s wasted no time in jumping into a relationship with Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson.

While Jessica has taken her time in moving on, the arrival of hunk Dan Edgar, 24, has helped to speed things up.

Dan told Jess they should just go with the flow

In fact, electrician Dan bravely asked Jessica out in front of her mum Carol and Nanny Pat. Well she could hardly say no and embarrass him in front of her family, could she?

Dan took Jessica out for drinks, and they bonded over their similarities.

He said: “We’re both in the same boat. We’ve got out of long relationships and don’t want anything serious. I know there is a lot of people putting a lot of pressure on it.”

Has Jess finally moved on from Ricky?

But Jessica, obviously used to the rumours and gossip, replied: “You know what Essex is like! You go on one date and everyone goes, ‘Oh my God, they are together.”

Dan told Jessica they should take it easy and see how things go, before teasing that he has a tattoo – but showing her would mean taking his top off.

Just when we thought he couldn’t be more perfect, Dan promised Jessica their next date would be ‘something fun and different’.

We don’t want to be mean, but we think Jessica has definitely upgraded with Dan…
