And while it seems the star is trying to move on from what happened, it seems his Essex pals are still sticking up for him as the blonde bombshell parties it up in the villa.
Close pal and power couple Tommy Mallet and Georgia Kousoulou exclusively spoke out about the pair’s now finished romance – saying they “all knew” how much he liked her before her savage move.
“We all knew about her,” Georgia exclusively told OK! Magazine. “He’s gutted. He’s a boy’s boy but he’s been ringing me for advice.”

She continued: “It’s sad because he really liked her. The whole thing is very sly.”
Tommy added: “It’s embarrassing what people will do to be famous. They think the only way to live life is to get on telly, and get all these followers on the computer.”
Jon recently sparked speculation he was planning to get the ultimate revenge on Chloe – by turning up on the ITV2 show to confront her.

The TOWIE favourite admitted he felt betrayed by his girlfriend, and took to social media to share proof they had been involved in a committed relationship.
But Chris Clark’s brother was spotted at the airport with a suitcase, fuelling rumours he could be returning to Love Island and confronting his now-ex.
But it’s not going too well for Chloe in the villa regardless – and in Tuesday’s episode, she gets DUMPED by her couple partner Chris Hughes after it was revealed he actually has a thing for Olvia Attwood.

Olivia used the famous line “it’s not you, it’s me” on poor Sam Gowland just a day before, despite striking up a very close bond in the villa almost immediately.
And while Chris thought he was doing the right thing by splitting with Chloe before he and Olivia got close, it seems word had already reached the blonde bombshell – who got very upset with Chris in the Beach Hut.
“What’s annoying me is that Chris is going around telling people one thing and then not relaying it to me,” she fumed. “If he wants to couple up with Liv then at least tell me. Don’t go behind my back and then let me find out through other people.”
