The former couple try to come to terms with their difficult breakup last year in emotional scenes to air tonight.
Gary ‘Gaz’ Beadle and Lillie Lexig Gregg have been flung together again on the MTV show after their messy split in 2015. Viewers saw Lillie arrive on the beach earlier this week and the 25-year-old blonde model was almost immediately sent off on a spiritual date with her more recent ex Stephen Bear.
However, she eventually sits down and has a heart-to-heart with Gaz and he wells up as he tells her: “That is one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make in my whole entire life Lill. Picking our relationship or work the only job I’ve had in my life that I am any f***ing half good at. I just had to pick what I thought was best for me.”
The 28-year-old reality TV star told his girlfriend at the time he was forced to dump her or risk getting the boot from Geordie Shore.
Lillie previously said: “Basically, he was put in a situation where he was given the option to choose between me and Geordie Shore. He was told he would have to leave the show that day if he picked me. It was a daunting decision for him because that’s his bread and butter. The show is all he’s ever known. It was the hardest decision of his life but ultimately he picked Geordie Shore.”
Later in the episode, Gaz apologises for the way he treated Lillie, syaing: “She is the only one that I have ever made my girlfriend and thats why that choice was so hard.”
Lillie accepts the apology after he says she showed him "there was more to life” and helped him change.
But later, Lillie is the one left in tears after she finds out Olivia Walsh had got with Gaz since their split and Bear then dares Olivia and Gaz to kiss.
Lillie runs to the kitchen and says: “I would have never thought she would do that. I’m just speechless.”
The drama continues when Olivia moans: “Why do I have to explain how many seconds his dick has been inside me? Who f***ing cares? We are single.”
Ex on the Beach continues Tuesday at 10pm on MTV.
