“I was an assistant and would help one of the hair stylists whenever Piers came in. He’d ask me my opinions on certain subjects, he was such an interesting person to talk to.

“He commented on one of my Instagram posts and everyone was like, that is so random that you’re mates with Piers Morgan.”

Chloe went on to say that Piers, who was recently trolled over his ‘messy house,’ messaged her to say she’d played the part of a villain very well on the show.

The stunning newbie continued: “When I left the salon I told him, and then we spoke before it was announced that I was joining TOWIE.

“He was like, ‘I’m so excited for you’ and then when the show started he messaged me and said ‘you play the villain very well.’

“And who better to give me advice about being a villain than Piers! I wouldn’t actually say I’m a villain, I’m just a real person.

“He says he hates reality shows but I think he does love an Essex girl really.”

In tense scenes on TOWIE recently, Chloe clashed with co-star Olivia Atwood.

Their awkward encounter saw the pair ending up in a slanging match, with words like “vile” and “poisonous” being thrown around, as well as Olivia telling Chloe she’d “never get married.”

TOWIE was sit by hundreds of Ofcom complaints as a result, after viewers were left feeling “uncomfortable” following the row between former Love Island star Olivia, 29, and Chloe.

Chloe is one of the newest TOWIE cast members and joined last year.

The brunette beauty, who seems to have ruffled some feathers on the reality show, joined at the same time as Kelsey Stratford, Joey Turner, Harry Lee, Tom McDonnell and Ella-Rae Wise.

However, confirming what had actually happened, Chloe spoke to OK! Magazine and explained: “It was so annoying – me and Jack are part of the same management.

"So when I signed up he messaged me on Instagram, just a really nice message saying: ‘Welcome to the family, you’ll really like them.'

"That was it. That was the true story.”
