The Only Way Is Essex hunk Chris Clark was slated after Sunday night’s episode.

After a short romance with Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson, Chris appears to have already moved on and rekindled his relationship with ex Amber Dowding.

The hour-long show saw the 22-year-old buy Amber a bunch of flowers after her stay in hospital.

Although what he did was sweet, it riled some, and even saw him accused of staging his relationship with Jesy to get publicity.

Talking to his mate Myles about his feelings towards Amber, he said: “I feel like if I kept putting that to the back of my head, two or three years down the line if she didn’t find anyone else, I would regret not doing stuff like this.”

He added: “At the end of the day, I’m a human being, I do have feelings, and I do care for the girl. I always have done, and I always will do.”

“I think these past weeks made me realise that I thought I was over her, I did think that. And maybe I’m not so sure no more,” Chris said, suggesting that he was thinking of Amber the entire time he was with Jesy.

This really riled some Little Mix fans, and they accused him of staging his relationship with the star to get publicity.

One Twitter user wrote: “So Chris did use Jesy as a PR stunt, things you do to stay relevant #TOWIE”.

Another added: “Asif Chris used beautiful Jesy to get back amber…[sic]”.

“Chris clark has mugged that little mix jesy off to win bk his ex #TOWIE [sic]”, said a third.

Meanwhile, it looked like Jesy, 25, had Chris on her mind during an intense boxing session.

Posting to her Instagram account on Sunday, she wrote: “I mean I had no idea what I was doing but I’ve never had so much fun in me life 🙈 💪🏼”.

A fan commented on the video, writing: “She looked like she was thinking about someone, and beating them up 😁😁✋✋”

Another supportive user added: “LET THAT ANGER OUT HUNNNNNYYYYY”.

The news of Chris and Jesy’s split emerged when fans noticed they had deleted each other’s pics from their social media accounts.

It was only days earlier that Jesy uploaded the cutest video of the couple slow dancing. It looked like things were going well.

Now it seems that she is much better off without him.

We have a feeling that the stunning singer is going to be just fine!
