Weeks after his and Jesy's split, TOWIE star Chris is already dating ex-girlfriend Amber Dowding...
Chloe Sims has stuck up for her TOWIE co-star Chris Clark after his awkward split from Jesy Nelson.
If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few weeks, let us explain. Chris, 22, went public with the Little Mix lady back in February, before they abruptly ended their whirlwind romance earlier this month.
Neither have spoken out about the reason behind their break-up. But Chris does appear to have already moved on, going on a date with ex-girlfriend Amber Dowding on last night’s show.
And it seems things have progressed since then. A source has told The Sun: ‘They have been on some nice dinner dates and they’ve agreed they both want to take things slowly.
‘They are focusing on letting their friendship grow again and building up the trust before they pursue anything too serious.’
Of course, Little Mix fans are none too happy with Chris RN. They’ve even been posting snake emojis on his Instagram photos – and we all know what that means.
But Chloe thinks we should give him a chance, writing in Star magazine: ‘I was sad to hear that Chris Clark and Jesy Nelson have split.
‘He really liked her at the start. Some people have said it was all for publicity, but I’m not so sure. People like to think the worst of others.’
Chloe, 34, has also downplayed Chris and Amber’s romance, adding: ‘I don’t know if he’ll get back with his ex Amber, like people are saying, but they’re on speaking terms.

‘I doubt they’ll be in a rush to rekindle at this point, though.’
We guess we’ll just have to stay tuned to TOWIE to find out…
