Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell seems determined to keep his well-publicised feud with co-star Chloe Brockett alive and well as it seems he's shared a not-so-subtle dig at Chloe on social media.

The reality star and influencer posted a caption to his Instagram that read in white capital letters on a black background, “People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”.

TOWIE's Chloe Brockett reveals co-star has BLOCKED her

While he hasn’t specifically addressed the jibe towards Chloe following all the drama on TOWIE, it seems that he could be taking aim at his co-star.

Chloe and Gatsby have been at the centre of A LOT of TOWIE drama recently after Gatsby had some less than complimentary things to say about Chloe’s fling with James ‘Lockie’ Lock, insinuating that James had confided in him that he found the whole escapade “embarrassing”.

Cue a LOT of arguments as Chloe confronted Gatsby for talking about her behind her back, and after Gatsby made a comment about “bikes”, Chloe claimed he was speaking about her.

BUT WAIT: the plot thickened when Frankie Sims (with impeccable timing, we might add) claimed that she’d heard from an unnamed person that Chloe and Gatsby had shared “a cuddle” before he started dating Dani Imbert, and perhaps that was why there was so much animosity between them now.
