Jess Impiazzi has broken her silence after it was reported she was left “heartbroken” when her new boyfriend Matthew Cook dumped her.

The former Ex On The Beach star, 32, was said to been feeling “down” after Matt, who was a school friend of her’s, ended their romance “out of the blue”.

Now, speaking to OK! , Jess explained: “I was dating my friend from, like, 20 years ago. I was like, ‘This is perfect. This is fantastic.’ And then he dumped me! I was like, ‘Oh, OK.’ I thought it was lovely. Maybe I scared him off. We’re friends again now, but at first I was completely upset.

"I couldn’t believe it. It just came out of the blue and I was so upset. I was like, ‘I’m going to remove you from everything.’ I was being dramatic, but I was just sad.”

Jess, who was attending the Afternoon Tea Party in aid of Breast Cancer Now, added: “We’re talking again and we’re friends again now. I don’t want to let a brief romance ruin a 20 year friendship.”

She continued: “One part of my life I haven’t got together yet is the dating part. I don’t know if it’s me. I just don’t know. I haven’t figured that out yet.”

The star, who was previously married to rugby player Denny Solomona, says she’s still on the look out for love.

“I don’t pick very wisely. I don’t seem to have much luck in the love department. But that’s going to change,” she said. “This year I’m going to find the love of my life and my second husband.”

Celebrity Big Brother star Jess and Matt are said to have struck up a romance in lockdown as they went for walks together.

Her recent split comes just months after her split from footballer Samir Carruthers after a year of dating.

A source close to the model said in March: “It just wasn’t working anymore and they’re both super focused on their careers.”

Jess’s world fell apart in 2018 when she discovered husband Denny has cheated on her and she ended their marriage after 15 months.

The end of her marriage led to her attempting suicide for the second time – as she had also made an attempt on her life at age 18.

She opened up about her journey in an interview with new magazine amid the release of her book, Silver Linings.

Looking back on discovering Denny had cheated, Jess told new in February: “It affected me big time. But what came from that was to learn to love myself more. I think that’s where I was going wrong.

“I wasn’t loving myself enough and how was I expecting someone else to love me fully when I didn’t love me fully?”

Jess attended the Afternoon Tea Party in aid of Breast Cancer Now at the Corinthia Hotel London hosted by Angie Greaves and organised by Concorde Media London – www.breastcancernow.org
