Chloe Sims and Diags’ relationship
Since the early 2010’s Chloe Sims and Diags have had one of the most adorable on-screen relationships.
The pair have had viewers wishing for a romantic spark to ignite between the pair every season.
But after the events in series 17, it looks as though Chloe and Diags becoming an item is completely off the cards.
I’ve been waiting for Chloe and Diags to realise they are in love for years and if that clip of them crying is that it’s never going to happen I’ll be a heartbroken #towie

Chloe and Diags in series 7
Throw it right back to TOWIE series 7 episode 7, and Chloe wants to take up DJ-ing.
Chloe sits down for a chat with Lauren Pope and James ‘Diags’ Bennewith and mentions that her DJ teacher, Darrell, is “good looking” and has “really nice hands”.
She said: “He’s a really nice guy and he does really nice little things. Like when I turn up for DJ-ing he knows that I like tea. Since the first time I said it, he gets me a tea with milk and no sugar every time I go.”
Diags replies: “I ain’t jealous or anything”.
Diags tried to date other people
During series 16 Diags was set up on a date by his BFF Dan Edgar. Diags bagged a date with Kady McDermott’s bestie, Jodie Charles.
His date was crashed by his three best friends Lauren Pope, Dan and Chloe Sims and they weren’t interested in leaving.
Diags did his best to impress Jodie but he said there wasn’t a spark there.
Maybe Diags just feels the chemistry between himself and Chloe…
Chloe and Diags on Twitter
With an adorable snap of the pair messing around with strawberries and cream it seems that Chloe and Diags do cross over some boundaries of being friends and being flirty.
Chloe wished her BFF a happy birthday on Twitter and made sure to call him her “favourite human” and “favourite boy”.

As if Diags hadn’t experienced enough mixed messages from Ms Sims, she made a joke about him licking the chocolate face mask off her face.
Chloe said: “Would you lick it off my face?”
Diags said he would, then Chloe added: “And then what?”
She then joked: “You’re actually making me feel a bit sick.”
