TOWIE favourite Chloe Sims was unable to hide her cringing during Wednesday evening's episode, as her co-stars poked fun at her relationship with Pete Wicks.
Pete, 31, and Chloe, 37, recently confessed to having a secret two-year relationship, with the long-haired hunk claiming the lines of their friendship were "blurred" behind closed doors.
During Demi Sims' socially distanced birthday party, Harry Lee and Diags staged a hilarious puppet show, acting out their secret romance in a makeshift theatre.
Harry played Chloe's character, asking the puppet – which resembled Pete – about their relationship in a high pitched voice.
Putting on Pete's voice as he waved about a stick puppet, Diags snapped: "Shut up, no one knows about this.
"The lines were blurred."
Watching from the audience, Chloe held her face in her hands, clearly embarrassed to see the fling reenacted before her pals.
Meanwhile, over on Twitter, viewers were in stitches over the puppet theatre, with many praising Diags' sense of humour.
One said: "Diags threw some shots there."
"Not gonna lie, the puppet show was funny!! ‘The lines were blurred' Well done Diags and Harry," added a second.
And a third wrote: "Actually crying from laughing at the puppet show."
Opening up about his relationship with Chloe in an interview with The Sun earlier this month, Pete said: "Yes our relationship has been more than just a friendship. It has been romantic.
"There have definitely been blurred lines over the last two-years. We haven't been officially seeing each other but there's definitely been times it's been more than just a friendship."
Pete went on to explain the relationship had negatively affected their friendship, with the two needing time apart.
He continued: "It's probably the worst kept secret in TV but yes there is a lot of love between us.
"I do love her and she is one of the most important people to me and hopefully I am to her but we have subsequently made a mess of our friendship.
"It is very hard to maintain a friendship when you do that because the lines get blurred and emotions get involved.
"We have couples' counselling to try and resolve the issues but we probably need a lot more. It was just a one off."
TOWIE airs on Wednesdays at 9pm on ITVbe.
