Following their split last year, Ricky, 25, has started a very public relationship with Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson, 21.

Luckily for Jess, 29, she had a break in Tenerife to look forward to – and it sounds like she definitely made the most of it!

According to reports, Jess was spotted getting cosy with a gorgeous Spaniard. Because, why not?

A source told The Sun: “Jess has been furious about Ricky getting together so publicly with Marnie and has been telling people it’s really disrespectful.

“She ended up snogging a hot Spaniard called Luis. They’ve exchanged flirty texts – so who knows where it’ll end.”

Jess was in Tenerife filming for series 14 of The Only Way Is Essex, and her co-stars Lydia Bright and Bobby Norris confirmed her holiday romance.

Lydia told Reveal: “She’s just single, loving life and just enjoying herself having a little flirt. She’s a stunning and beautiful girl.”

Bobby added: “She met a lovely bloke and he was very easy on the eye! She’s just taking her time, she doesn’t want to rush into another relationship after her split from Ricky.”

Jess and Ricky split in November last year, after she discovered he’d been messaging another woman behind her back.

When she confronted Ricky he admitted it, saying: “I haven’t been in a good place with you, so I have been flirting with other girls.”

Ultra chic Lydia is arguably one of the trendiest TOWIE girls now, but it hasn't always been that way...

Just like Popey, Maria is almost unrecognisable! The red hair is much more flattering on her skin tone.
