Arriving to meet her sisters, Demi teared up as she said: ‘Me and Francesca broke up. I feel literally heart broken but it was for the best. It was the best for both of us. 

‘We just weren’t getting on behind closed doors. The relationship we were having in front of everyone else was a different relationship from what we were having when no one was there.

Further explaining the distance that grew between them, Demi said: ‘The spark was gone. There was no conversation, it was like getting blood out of a stone.’

‘I just feel so unhappy. I would’ve given her the world if she wanted it but, I don’t know, it just didn’t work. It just really hurt me.’

Demi’s sisters were quick to reassure her they would be there for her, with Frankie saying: ‘I’m not going to lie to you, this is going to be so hard but you’ve got us. We’re going to get through it, it’s fine.’

Chloe became emotional as she provided Demi with moral support, reminding her that Frankie got through her breakup with Harry Lee and she would do the same.  

She said: ‘You’ve been upset in the past about other relationships. Yous two girls are so strong. She did it and you’re gonna do the same.’

Feeling defeated, Demi said: ‘I feel like every time I break up with someone, there’s no fight for me, it’s starting to wear me down.’

Francesca, who is from Canada, has remained in London since her split from Demi and posted a snap of herself in Elan Café on Sunday.

She wrote: ‘On today’s episode of pretending everything’s fine, here we have me enjoying a beautiful lunch at @elan_cafe’. 

TOWIE fans took to Twitter after the emotional scene to express their support for Demi with one writing: ‘can’t deal when Demi cries. Beautiful person inside and out.’

Another said: ‘Demi, someday you’ll meet someone that will give you the world if you want it and not the other way around.’

Another viewer added: ‘Aw poor Demi she looks heartbroken, just shows you don’t know what goes on behind closed doors.’

It comes after Demi slammed Francesca over a cryptic TikTok video about ‘getting back with an ex’ just days after their shock split.

Demi took to Instagram to release a statement on Friday night as she accused the Too Hot To Handle beauty of ‘falling for her ex-boyfriend again’.

Prior to their relationship, Francesca dated Too Hot To Handle co-star Harry Jowsey with the two splitting in June – it is not known if he is the alleged ex in question.

Demi penned: ‘Thanks guys for all your messages checking in on me to make sure I’m okay after my ex GF’s TikTok (which btw we’ve only been broke up for a week and she’s already posting about falling for her ex boyfriend again). 

‘But I can assure you I’m okay, after having a hard week of crying and a broken heart I’ve now realised I’ve dodged a bullet. I appreciate you all and all your support.’ 

Demi then shared a screenshot from a fan account where it showed Francesca’s TikTok in question and alleged that the reality star had shared a throwback picture of herself with ex Harry.

In her TikTok video, which is still uploaded on the platform, the Canadian beauty lipsyncs to Dua Lipa’s Levitating.

It is captioned with ‘single and ready to focus on me’, then the video changes to ‘my ex;’ to which she mimes the lyrics: ‘You want me, I want you, baby’.

MailOnline has contacted Francesca’s representative for comment.

Demi and Francesca called it quits after a whirlwind four-month romance. 

On last week’s show, the reality star and her sister Frankie had a heart-to-heart as the model admitted she felt ‘lonely’ ever since she moved out of the home they shared in Essex to live with the Canadian bombshell in London. 

Frankie recalled a chat she had with Amy Childs and Harry about missing her younger sister, sharing: ‘I just told them I was feeling so lonely. You’re my best friend and sister, we haven’t had any time on our own.

‘I feel like we’re so distant. I just feel so empty at the minute Dem. I’m so scared of losing you as you’re everything wrapped up in one Dem. This is the first time we’ve been separated, and it’s just been really hard.’

‘I feel like I’ve always been your rock, I moved out and it wasn’t planned. I’ve missed you too, you’ve always been my best friend’, Demi replied.

Sharing a picture of roses, Francesca confirmed their break-up on Instagram last week, penning: ‘I really didn’t want to have to address this today, but I am already getting attacked on social media so I might as well bite the bullet since I have no choice.

‘Demi and I are no longer together. We decided to go our separate ways this morning. Nothing bad happened. We were both loyal to one another and still love each other.

‘Sometimes people just don’t work perfectly together and that’s OK. We rushed into living together without knowing if our personalities and daily life meshed well together.

‘I wish we could have had a few days to emotionally cope with this in private but we chose to share our entire relationship with you guys which is why I’m posting this now.’

Eagle-eyed fans noticed the former couple had stopped following each other on social media.

Francesca asked her followers to respect her privacy because they are having an ‘extremely difficult time.

She added: ‘I would have loved to remain friends and in each other’s lives but she thought seeing me on social media would be too difficult for her, which is why she wanted to block me.

‘In life when a couple breaks up this is a coping mechanism and they don’t get scrutinised by thousands of people for how they choose to act after a heartbreaking situation. I want you guys to know nothing bad happened between us.

‘Please be kind and respect our privacy. It is an extremely difficult time for both of us and negative, inaccurate and presumptuous comments make it much more difficult. It did take a toll on our relationship as well.’

The pair had moved in with each other after falling in love on holiday in Mexico, and even got tattoo tributes of their initials.

The Only Way Is Essex continues Sunday at 9pm on ITVBe and available on the ITV Hub.
