When discussing if she would offer any advice to her ex’s new sweetheart, Chloe candidly shared: ‘I wouldn’t give advice to Amber I was not her friend I was Dan’s.
‘I never associated with her without Dan, she tried to make out as if we were friends to begin with and that wasn’t the case. I don’t have her phone number – I never actually socialise with her away from Dan ever once since she’s been on the scene.’
Explaining how it makes her feel, she added: ‘It’s quite frustrating when she drops girl code because you have to actually have to be girls in the first place to break girl code.
‘I get where she is coming from and I guess she wants to get a reaction from the public which is fine if it makes you feel better, carry on!’

‘Me and the cast know the truth and that we weren’t friends and I won’t give her any advice…apart from maybe stay out of my way!’
Chloe also shared that she has not spoken to her ex Dan since May.
Proving she understands it will have to be rehashed on screen and that they will inevitably have to chat, she revealed: ‘Obviously it was 2 and half months, nearly three months ago, so like we have all moved on and we all understand this is a TV show and on the last episode we made up as friends, but I understand I am sure he does too, that it needs to be touched on.
‘Obviously they decided to bring Amber back now onto the show and she’s going to have her say and that is only right, but I hope it doesn’t drag out for another three months.
Frustrated: Explaining how it makes her feel, she added: ‘It’s quite frustrating when she drops girl code because you have to actually have to be girls in the first place to break girl code’

Over it: Chloe added ‘I get where she is coming from and I guess she wants to get a reaction from the public which is fine if it makes you feel better, carry on!’
‘We have a lot of series ahead of us and I think the first few episodes we will talk about it then we have all moved on and there isn’t that much more to say about it.’
Sharing her thoughts on the breakdown of her romance with Dan, she added: ‘We just have to see you never know with this show the situations we are in and we still have to go out together so I can’t tell you what will happen.
‘One minute I am calm and I fine and over it then another I hear something that’s been said and I can react quite easily so we just have to see.’
The glamorous star also discussed her sister Frankie joining the show after moving back to Essex after studying in Preston.
Excited about another one of her sisters being involved in the show, after her sister Demi Sims joined last season, the eldest of the Sim sister’s gushed: ‘Frankie has been in Preston for years and she just newly moved back to Essex and it makes sense.’
‘She worked so hard for like six years and I said just come and join and have some fun with us and then you can always go back to your career as this may not last forever so I just thought it was an opportunity for her and same for Demi.
Over: Chloe also shared that she has not spoken to her ex Dan since May
‘They come out and socialise with me all the time and we are close but they weren’t on the show so it was a no brainer that they would come on.’
Chloe’s comments come after the last episode of the last series of TOWIE showed Chloe having a heart to heart with Dan.
The mother-of-one and the hunk discussed the ups and downs they encountered – and Dan praised Chloe for being so understanding after he called time on their fling.
In response, the busty blonde told him: ‘I do love you.’
Seemingly happy to hear these words, Dan embraced the star in a tight hug before the show drew to an end.
Chloe previously declared her strong feelings for Dan at the start of series after they hooked up on holiday in Thailand and their on and off romance kept fans questioning what was going on all of the last series.
A spanner was thrown in the works when Amber returned to the show to share that Dan had been sleeping with her the whole time and had been playing both the ladies.
After the summer Dan and Amber rekindled their romance and said to be going from strength to strength which viewers will see on the upcoming series.
TOWIE returns on Sunday 1st September on ITVBe.
