Remember when TOWIE’s Chris Clark and Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson were a thing? That was a weird time.

Chris is now back with his on/off girlfriend, TOWIE co-star Amber Dowding, and has revealed a pretty awful detail about how he dumped Jesy back in April.

You may remember that Chris' friend Myles Barnett let the cat out of the bag when he revealed Chris dumped her by TEXT. He told OK! magazine, "People are saying he used her, but that’s not true. He was obviously interested; he thought she was stunning and spoke about her to me. He probably didn’t do it as well as he could have, but he wanted to tell her as soon as possible, which meant over the phone as she was in America."

And now Chris himself has confirmed the story, while also revealing a pretty brutal detail – he used Amber’s phone to send the message. Speaking to The Sun, he said, "I was never going to escape it. I had to just deal with it. She was on the other side of the world. I am happier now than I ever have been."

And Amber (also present at the interview) said, "It wasn’t my relationship but all I can say on Chris’s behalf is that it wasn’t done in a negative way."
