The 29-year-old has enjoyed flirtations with The Only Way Is Essex newbies Dan Edgar and Pete Wicks – but she’s not looking for a showmance.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Jess said: “I wouldn’t fall for someone who just wanted to be famous off the back of us being together.

“I’m actually very selective about who I go on dates with and I can be quick to write people off if I think they’re being too needy!”

Jess is one of the only original TOWIE cast members left, and she’s got a lot going on away from the show.

As well as her fashion collaboration with Very, Jess is the face and body of Ann Summers’ new swimwear range and she’s about to release her debut novel Sparkling Stilettos which is out on 23 July.

Despite this, Jess – who previously studied English Literature – still wants marriage and a family eventually.

She continued: “I want to get married and have kids – the whole fairytale – but I don’t want either of those things for another three or four years.

While Jess insisted she doesn't have a problem with Verity, she'll always stick up for her friends

“I still love going out and I want to work on progressing my career, and having children would get in the way of that.”

Most recently on the ITVBe reality show, Jess and her friends have been dealing with feisty newcomer Verity Chapman.

While Verity has caused a lot of upset when it comes to the girls and their respective men, Jess isn’t holding a grudge.

“I don’t have a problem with Verity,” she said. “But us TOWIE girls always stick up for each other so I had to say something.”
