TOWIE’s Chloe Brockett SLAMS Liam ‘Gatsby Blackwell’ for talking about her fling with James Lock

Chloe Brockett labelled Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell a ‘f*****g idiot’ during an argument argument on Sunday night’s episode of TOWIE.

The reality show is back for a brand new series and it all kicked off when the group decided to head to Sandbanks for a staycation.

After learning that Gatsby had discussed her fling with James ‘Lockie’ Lock and said James was ‘cringed out’ by her, Chloe confronted him at the beach.

Tense: Chloe Brockett labelled Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell a ‘f*****g idiot’ during an argument argument on Sunday night’s episode of TOWIE

She said: ‘I feel like we need to speak about a few things. Saying James was cringed out about me? What’s that about?’

Unimpressed, Gatsby replied: ‘Why are you coming up to me and talking like we’re mates?’

Chloe responded: ‘I’m not your pal so why are you saying it?’

Trying to keep his cool, Gatsby said: ‘I couldn’t care less. I don’t care if he’s cringing or not cringing. I could not care less.’

Argument: After learning that Gatsby had discussed her fling with James ‘Lockie’ Lock and said James was ‘cringed out’ by her, Chloe confronted him at the beach

Chloe insisted the fact he was talking about her at all proved he did care as she replied: ‘You said it. There was a million topics you could have had and it was about me and Lockie.’

Gatsby answered: ‘Everyone’s talking about it Chlo, not just me.’

This was the last straw for Chloe as she replied: ‘You’re getting involved. Why do you give a f**k? 

‘I don’t need this ag. You can go and write a song no one gives a f**k about you f****n idiot.’

Chloe said: ‘I feel like we need to speak about a few things. Saying James was cringed out about me? What’s that about?’

After storming off, Chloe was then seen leaving a voice note on someone’s phone saying: ‘I think we need to talk, I’m on the way back to Essex so I’ll see you when I’m there.’

James, who didn’t go on the trip, was then seen picking up his phone and listening to the note before putting it away.

Earlier in the episode, James spoke to Chloe Sims and James ‘Diags’ Bennewith over video chat and said his romance with Chloe, which happened shortly after his split from Yazmin Oukhellou, was not serious.  

He said: ‘My body was there but my mind.. I’m like a magnet towards women. It was never going to be serious.’  

Reaction: Fans took to social media to react to the heated argument on the beach, with many praising Chloe for defending herself

Gatsby had dinner with Dani Imbert, Dan Edgar and Amber Turner during the episode where Amber told him: ‘You’ve been slightly muggy towards my best friends so I didn’t want to sit there and be like everything’s fine.’

Gatsby replied: ‘ Obviously they’re your friends but I’ve always got on with you. Even Chloe Brockett I thought was alright. I didn’t say anything about her. I don’t like them. I just want to get back to how it was.’

Fans took to social media to react to the heated argument on the beach, with many praising Chloe for defending herself. 

One wrote: ‘There’s way too many haters for Chloe on TOWIE now. Uncomfortable watching it.’

Another said: ‘I’ll give it to Chloe, she holds her own. I’m convinced people start on her for air time at this point.’

One viewer wrote: ‘No one can intimidate Chloe B and this is why I rate her,’ while another said: ‘I’m sorry but Chloe B gives me main character energy. I LOVE it.’ 

Chloe also tweeted after the show about James and Dani, writing: ‘Yawning hell will Gatsby and his plus one ever stop talking about me’. 

Viewers can expect plenty of fireworks in the coming weeks as James and Chloe’s rendezvous reaches the Lothario’s ex-girlfriend Yazmin in Dubai. 

Yazmin looks set to make her return in next week’s episode as she was seen arriving back in Essex during a preview clip of episode two.

Yazmin, 27, will return to the show to confront her friend over the betrayal, after Chloe started seeing James following the couple’s painful split in February. 

A source told MailOnline last month: ‘James and Chloe’s romance has really shocked a lot of people.

‘No one expected them to grow close, especially given Chloe’s friendship with Yazmin. Her relationship with James has been over for months now but she still feels betrayed and let down by the way Chloe’s acted.

‘Yazmin’s return to TOWIE will see her confront Chloe over her behaviour, and indeed James’ after they agreed to still treat each other with respect following their split.’

‘She feels let down’: Yazmin had a close friendship with Chloe before she started dating her ex-boyfriend James, causing a major fallout between the pair (pictured in 2019)
