Her flirtatious behaviour soon leads to lots of frosty encounters within the villa, leaving her with very few female allies. However, Chloedefends herself, saying “I’ve always had loads more guy friends; I find that most girls come with a lot of drama, and I’m not interested in it”. Maybe she’ll have better luck with the boys…

Will Emily find her dream partner on Ex on the Beach?
The joker of the bunch Jack is not one to be tied down. Jack has never had a long-term girlfriend, claiming he would “rather play the field”, and spends all his free time and money on partying.
