Oh no! TOWIE's Chloe Sims is on a break from Elliott Wright - and we know why

Chloe Sims and Elliott Wright have talked kids and marriage, so we were starting to get our hopes up for these two.

But the pair are now on a break because she feels suffocated by his jealous reaction over her friendship with ex Mario Falcone, Now can exclusively reveal.

The Only Way Is Essex stars are taking time out just weeks after we saw them argue in Ibiza when Chloe, 32, told Elliott, also 32, that she wanted to go for lunch with Mario and invited him along.

Mario, 26,and Chloe briefly dated last year but agreed that, despite what happened between them, they would remain friends. However Elliott has made his feelings on them being friends clear saying Mario should call HIM if he wants to see Chloe.

A source tells Now: ‘Chloe feels suffocated by the relationship. They’ve had crisis talks and gone through their options and both laid their cards on the table.

‘They decided that they needed some time out.’

A recent episode of TOWIE showed Elliott hitting the roof when Chloe invited him to have lunch with her and ex-boyfriend, Mario.

When the argument was screened, Elliott took to Twitter to defend himself.

He retweeted a fan who wrote: ‘Everyone calling @elliottwright_ controlling, so you’d let your girlfriend go for lunch with her ex yeah #towie’

A source said: ‘They’re both cut up about it. They’d introduced their kids to one another and had moved in together to make it work.

‘It’s not one person’s decision over the other, but they have decided to take some time apart.’

Before the show last week, Chloe posted a snap on Instagram of a huge bouquet of pink roses along with the caption: ‘These were such a nice surprise this afternoon… Thank you @elliottwright.’
But it seems that things have since gone downhill for the couple – who have dated for less than six months.

Long time nemesis Ferne McCann (who is dating Chloe‘s brother Charlie) has also blamed Elliott for driving a wedge between her and Chloe in the past and says she now wants to put their rivalry to bed.

‘She is my boyfriend’s sister and I hope one day we can rekindle our relationship. We once got on so well and it’s such a shame it’s like that,’ she said.

‘It just escalated, it all blew up, things were said that I regret and I hope that she does too.

‘I don’t even know why we’re rowing. I don’t hold grudges, I want to make up with her.’

Another friend you’d like to meet for lunch maybe Chlo?
