Throughout season five of Made In Chelsea, Andy Jordan and Louise Thompson's relationship seemed to run parallel to Spencer Matthews and Lucy Watson's romance.
In the final episode of the series, it looked like it was all falling apart for the geography lovers, while the bad girl and bad boy of Chelsea were looking smug in their relationship success.
Fast-forward a month or so and the whole thing has turned on its head.
Andy and Louise are going strong despite a worrying incident that took centre stage in the finale episode of MIC.
Louise stayed out all night and if reports and comments in the show are to be believed it appears she was paying One Direction's Niall Horan a visit.
The pint-sized brunette is adamant nothing happened and that they're just friends, but Andy's not taking any chances.
He's explained that his girlfriend is banned from seeing the Irish singer again.
He told New! magazine: "To be honest I’ve put my foot down on that."
Andy avoids using Niall's name during the interview but answers "no" when asked whether his girlfriend has been in contact with the singer since their night together.
Asked about Louise's understanding and respect for his decision to not let her see Niall again, he said she is gets it "completely".
He continued: "Our relationship has got stronger. It was make or break but in a weird way it’s made us."
Andy's choice to stay with Louise went against advice from a lot of his friends and cast mates.
Asked why he did, he said: "I guess because I love her. And I believe her - even though no one else does. But I understand her behaviour. She did something I’ve done in the past."
One person who certainly doesn't believe her is Andy's friend - and Louise's arch enemy - Lucy Watson.
Speaking at the end of series party, Lucy told Louise: "I think you're lying, I think you should tell Andy the truth."
Another thing to come out of the wrap show was of course the revelation that Spencer had cheated - again.
We had all started to believe that Spencer was changing his ways, but he's since considered that perhaps he misinterpreted his feelings for Lucy.
He told OK! Magazine: "I thought I was changing but it turns out it wasn’t to be. Maybe what I said was love was just lust."
When he admitted what he'd done to Lucy, he recalls "she was upset and disappointed rather than angry."
Spencer added: "It was too early for a relationship. I did care about Lucy, she is a lovely girl and she doesn’t deserve to be hurt, but it was too soon after Louise to commit to one person."
Describing how he fell off the fidelity wagon yet again, he said: "I went to Zante with Hugo [Taylor] and we went out one night, we’d had a lot to drink and a girl was pretty forward and she was preying on me and all over me and told me she lived 10 seconds away and I was weak, under the influence, so it was a very easy."
Adamant the tryst meant nothing and he felt "awful" almost immediately, Spencer has no hopes for a reconciliation with Lucy.
He knows she would "look like an idiot - and she won't like that".
Too right, Spennie - stay single. Ladies - steer clear!
