The 'Only Way is Essex' star has decided to take each day as it comes from now on because five years ago she predicted that she'd be in a happy relationship.

Speaking to new! magazine, she said when asked where she sees herself in five years from now: "I have no idea. Five years ago I thought I'd be married off by now."

But the 34-year-old beauty thinks some of her lack of love may be down to the fact that she doesn't like to date people outside of the show because it's easier on camera.

She explained: "It's easier and more convenient to have a boyfriend on the show. I've had to face most of my dramas by myself."

And when she is feeling a little down in the dumps, the blonde beauty turns to her close friend Diags because he manages to cheer her up when she's feeling miserable.

She added: "He's the light of my life. You can't be miserable around him."

Meanwhile, Chloe set tongues wagging recently when she said she didn't want Calum Best - who she locked lips with last year - to date anyone else.

She said recently: "I'm looking forward to [watching] 'Celebs Go Dating'.

"I know a handful of people on it, which makes it even better. My ex Calum Best is on.

"He's always doing dating shows, which gives me the worst nerves.

"I have this weird thing that I don't want him to meet anything else."
