Before not too long they were back in each other's arms, but with Chloe insisting that they take things slow rather than jump back into such a serious relationship. 

Among singletons on this year's annual jaunt to Marbella is Jessica Wright who, in one clip of the forthcoming episode, says she has been faced with 'the most awkward situation' of her life. 

The 28-year-old brunette beauty parted ways with Dan Edgar last season after the pair enjoyed a few dates. 

No doubt vying for her attention is the season's newest cast member, Pete, who turns heads when arriving in the plush Spanish resort. 

The Only Way is Marbs will begin on Sunday at 10pm on ITVBe.
