But the TOWIE star soon got a backlash from Little Mix fans after it was revealed he’d dumped singer Jesy by text.
Chris, who rekindled his relationship with ex Amber Dowding, has now made a shocking confession about the break-up.
“I used Amber’s [phone] to do it,” he told The Sun. “I was never going to escape it. I had to just deal with it.

“She was on the other side of the world. I am happier now than I ever have been.”
Amber added: “It wasn’t my relationship but all I can say on Chris’s behalf is that it wasn’t done in a negative way.
“He wasn’t 100 per cent in the relationship and he had to end it when he ended it and that was that. I don’t want him to ever receive a backlash from it.

“In life you have to think about yourself and be selfish sometimes.”
Chris and Jesy had a two-month whirlwind romance before Chris called time on the relationship.
A source said at the time: “Their lives are so different, it was never going to work.

“Chris is a normal Essex lad, he’s very private and low key. He likes spending time with his mum and mates and not being in the spotlight.
“Jesy’s life is a world away from his. She’s a superstar, travelling the world and living in the spotlight.
“He got a taste of her lifestyle and it couldn’t work – it’s just not him. There’s no bad blood it just wasn’t working out between them.”
