As the fallout from their fight at the pool party continues, Gemma breaks down in front of Ferne McCann, Chloe Sims and Danni Armstrong, where she declares that she will “never speak” to her former BFF again.
Across town, Bobby confides in Jess Wright and Billie Faiers as he tells his side of the story to them, saying: “The next thing I know I’m wearing a cheap glass of sauvignon blanc.”
Lauren Pope and Vas Morgan also reflect on their role in the bust up, but a warring Lauren and Gemma continue to trade insults behind each others’ backs.
“She genuinely doesn’t like that we’re not intimidated by her,” Lauren tells Vas, as she is unbeknowingly branded “a rat” by Gemma.
Eager to build bridges with Bobby, Lauren and Vas invite him to tennis. However, he is warned by Ferne, Chloe S and Billie not to take their side in the row, with Chloe insisting that they will not stick by him if he does.
But Gemma and Bobby’s feud is not the only thing getting everyone talking, as the group speculate as to whether James Locke has met another girl.
After Mario Falcone tries to get the lowdown from a secretive Vas, Lockie’s ex Danni confronts him, and once again, tears are quick to flow when new girl Verity arrives.
She’s then devastated when Chloe Sims tells her that Lockie has also returned the engagement ring he bought for her...
Are Lockie and Dani over for good this time?
