"They met out and about in Essex and have mutual friends," a source claimed last month. "They are super close and have been spending a lot of time together."

At the time, TOWIE cast member Ella Rae Wise exclusively told Closer, "It’s really sad – they’re not together anymore.

"When we were filming, she didn’t want to make him out to be a bad person and he didn’t want to make her out to be a bad person but I think it was a mutual decision for them to break up.”
