Elliot Wright 'moving on' from Chloe Sims
Elliot Wright insists his romance with his 'The Only Way Is Essex' co-star Chloe Sim's is over for good and claims he wants to be in a "a proper" relationship
Elliot Wright wants to "move on" from Chloe Sims.
The 34-year-old reality TV star - who had been dating his 'The Only Way Is Essex' cast mate on and off since last year - insists their romance is over for good and claims he's ready to have a "proper" relationship.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I wasn't getting what I wanted out of the relationship, so that's that - time to move on.
"I'm 34, and if I'm going to be in a relationship, it has to be a proper one - that's why Chloe and I aren't together. I don't think we can work it out."
Elliot - who was spotted getting cosy with Chloe, 33, following their split at the National Television Awards in January - believes the break up has been made difficult for the former couple as they are forced to spend so much time together on the show.
He explained: "I don't regret trying again but for me it wasn't working out. We bumped into each other at the NTAs and obviously we're attracted to one another. It's hard being in a relationship on the show full stop.
"If you split up with someone you tend to avoid bumping into them, but when you're on TV they push you together."
The father of two added he isn't looking forward to filming new scenes for the ITVBe reality series alongside the brunette beauty.
He said: "Being in a relationship on TOWIE is hard. If someone's going to have jealousy issues, it's not going to be easy. I'm a bit apprehensive about seeing Chloe when we film the show. We're the main characters, and the first couple of episodes will be about us."
Meanwhile, Chloe is already on the hunt for a new man and is looking for a "gentleman" who can take her on "lovely dates".
She recently said: "I'm 100 per cent single.
"I haven't got a type, but I do like a man to be a gentleman and have good manners.
"I like doors to be held open and help with putting my coat on. Someone who takes the time to organise lovely dates.
"I like to be treated like a lady."
