Glamorous Chloe Sims has been starring on The Only Way is Essex since 2011, wowing viewers with her fantastic sense of style and down-to-earth demeanour.

But the time spent away from the hit ITVBe show during the lockdown has enabled the star to realise some stuff about her life.

She revealed in a recent interview that: "It has taken a worldwide pandemic for me to really love myself.

"The whole pandemic put a lot of things into perspective for me and made me realise I am OK being on my own."

But she then went on to reveal that she has now come to accept the possibility that she may never marry.

She added: "I have accepted that times have changed and that might not happen."

But love life aside, there are many other aspects of Chloe's life that you may not know about. Here's what you need to know…

1. Chloe Sims' owned her own business

As well as being a reality TV natural, Chloe was also a businesswoman.

Chloe used to own a beauty bar in Essex, which offered treatments such as hair colour and extensions, lash extensions and special occasion makeup.

However, she closed the salon early last year citing a lack of an "energy and commitment."

On Facebook she wrote: "End of an era! After 5 incredible years….Chloe's Beauty Bar is coming to an end! Our last day of trading will be Saturday, 2 March 2019.

"It has been an incredible journey but with new and exciting opportunities right now we are no longer able to give the business the energy and commitment required.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed the journey and would like to thank all of our wonderful clients, we couldn't have done it without you!"

2. Chloe's pole dancing past

In her 2012 autobiography, The Only Way Is Up, the 38 year old opened up about her past hardships.

She explained how she turned to pole dancing to pay the bills when she became a single mother to her daughter Maddison, who is now 15 years old.

In an interview with Reveal at the time, she said: "It was the lowest point of my life: I was completely skint, my landlord was threatening to kick us out and we had nowhere to go.

"We had no hot water so I would boil a kettle to wash Mady. Then I'd put two pairs of pyjamas on to keep her warm at night. My plans to be a good mum had failed, I had hit rock bottom."

3. Her childhood heartbreak

At the same time, the beauty opened up about the difficulties of being abandoned by her own mother as a child, aged just three.

She said: "I have so few memories of mum that I can barely even remember her face.

"I'll never know why she left and we've not seen her since. What sort of woman just walks out and leaves her child?

4. Chloe's confessions on cosmetic surgery regrets

The beauty has always been open about the cosmetic surgery she's had done, including several boob jobs and a Brazilian bum lift.

She previously told The Sun: "My boobs are a bit of a regret.

"They’re like 1990s perky ones, instead of the more natural-looking boobs you see now."
