She explained: “You did what you love to do, you said, ‘Here’s an idea that I really want to do and I think it’s going to be great.’ Now the day has come that you’re absolutely not prepared for have prepared.” It.
“I lay in bed until 11.30pm last night writing treatments for the show.”
She added to the camera: “Classic. “James hasn’t prepared anything for the podcast we insisted on coming out, so obviously it’s on me and I’m pretty nervous now.”
The personal trainer revealed that she had a work call to attend to before filming the podcast and opened Zoom while James continued to talk to her in the background.
She told the camera: “When I’m trying to work and James is talking, talking, talking – I’m just not anymore – I have two methods: Shut him up and just keep shushing him until he’s annoyed and then just ‘ignore him.’
James replied: “You’re just going to invade my space while I’m having breakfast.” “It’s a bit like your own podcast, a bit muddled, a bit shabby, not very interesting.”
As Chloe continued to shush him, her conversation with the camera returned as she explained: “If James has anything valuable to contribute I wouldn’t silence him, but he makes a lot of inappropriate jokes on a business call and he needs to speak up!’
After storming out of the room, James continued to moan, “She shuts me up like I’m a dog or like I’m a baby.” I just say, “Shut me up again and that’s the end of it.” what you will ever do.”

Preparations: While Chloe and James had their differences, they decided to put all date night tensions aside and head out for an evening of mini golf and drinks
While Chloe and James had their differences, they decided to put any tension aside for date night and head out for an evening of mini golf and drinks.
As she got ready, Chloe mused, “I know it’s a date, but it’s also an active, competitive date, so I’m not going to dress like a girly girl like I ever have before.”
Which prompted James to scoff: “Why do you act like you ever really dress up?” You’re lying!
“You always sit there on a date and ask yourself, ‘Does it bother you that I don’t wear makeup and never dress up?’ It’s more the fact that you’re doing something and you’re worried about it!”
As Chloe said: “I feel bad because…” James chimed in and said: “But not bad enough to ever change it!” She continued: “In my head we’re leaving the house and I feel I’m comfortable and warm and that’s all I care about.”
“Then we get there and other girls, like Love Island-style girls, come in and I’m like, Oh shit, poor James.”
As James argued: “I never complain”, Chloe continued: “I dress a bit slutty but not girly.”
James then joked: “You always dress sloppily when I’m not around, which is even worse.”
The latest episode of the reality series ended with Bodhi’s first birthday party, which was also attended by the couple’s parents.
The scenes were filmed a month before Chloe and James split, with the couple making their split official with a joint statement last weekend.
The couple, who married in 2018, had fueled speculation about their relationship after the personal trainer appeared without her wedding ring while partying with friends – shortly after the former rugby player was seen meeting a mystery woman outside a London nightspot blonde chatted.
In a joint update on Instagram, they announced: “Chloe and I have jointly decided to separate at the end of September 2023.”
“We had no plans to release a statement at the time – especially not while the TV show was airing – but constant speculation about our marriage unfortunately forced us to do so.
“Beyond this statement, we will not speak publicly about this matter and ask for privacy at this time.”
“Our only focus now is our beautiful daughter. “We will continue to co-parent with nothing but love.”

James shared his own statement on Instagram, adding: “It is with great sadness that I write this post, but unfortunately in the world we live in it must be done.”
“My priority is the happiness and safety of my daughter and Chloe. “For this reason, I will not be commenting further.”
A source told MailOnline: “James is still living at the family home in London, he returned on Monday and was still there yesterday morning.”
A friend of the couple added: “It’s all so strange and it all seems quite strange to me that Chloe has done a number of interviews and spoken very openly about her life and marriage but she has failed to say that she and James separated despite herself. “A television show is all about her family life.”
