TOWIE's Mario Falcone was the one to step in with the big wooden spoon this week and stir up Jess and Ricky’s relationship, revealing that there are still flirty messages that Ricky doesn’t know about.
Mario arrives at Sam Faiers BBQ and asks to speak to Tom P on the door step, saying: “I don’t want to get involved”, then precedes to get himself very involved indeed...
Tom P shows Mario the alleged “flirty” texts from Jess, but Mario then digs a little deeper and asks if anything else has happened. It is then revealed by Tom P that Jess had asked him if her Blackberry Messenger picture was working and if he could open it.
Tom P says that the picture was Jess in her underwear and that she had sent him a ‘wink’ face.
Later, some of the TOWIE gang are having dinner at Mario’s. Jess gives moving in gifts to Ricky, including a picture of the couple. This is much to the disgust of Mario, who shakes his head and says under his breath: “I bet this wasn’t the picture she asked Tom P to open” before returning the picture and saying: “cute."
A few moments later Mario drops the bombshell and reveals that he knows about the BBM messages.Jess immediately jumps to her own defense and says to Ricky: “Didn’t my BBM picture not work for a while?”
Ricky replies: “But why did you ask Tom?”
Jess breaks down in tears at the table and shouts at Ricky: “I’m innocent messaging Tom.I’m friends with him.. I love you.”
Jess storms out of the restaurant whilst Mario sits back and admires what he has just caused. Lucy Mecklenburgh and Lydia Bright encourage Ricky to go after Jess, saying that she obviously loves him.
Ricky admits to Jess: “It’s the fact you’ve done it and it’s made me feel f***king worthless.”
Jess hugs him and says: “Please....I thought he was my friend and I trusted him." He doesn't fight her plea and they kiss. He warns her: “Don’t trust people like that anymore.”
Is Ricky right to let Jess off the hook so quickly?
