After months of flirting and a few snogs (but never really taking the next step) TOWIE’s [Diags {href='/entertainment/tv-movies/towie-diags/' }) has finally put an end to his situationship with co-star Elma Pazar via a blazing row at the series finale party with everyone watching – cause TOWIE.

If you're playing catch up on series 32 (phwoar, you're in for a treat), allow us to fill you in (spoilers etc, etc); Diags and Elma's situationship came to a screeching halt this series when Diags introduced Jodie Wells to the group, confirming they were dating. Elma and Diags then 'accidentally' shared several drunken kisses together at a party round Amber Turner's house, which of course everyone in Essex witnessed (the carnage). Diags was then forced to tell Jodie the truth about the drunken smooches which resulted in a blazing row between Elma and Jodie, and then subsequently Elma and Diags at the series finale party.

And that's where the series ended... so, naturally we're all left wondering, are Diags and Jodie still going strong? Or have Diags and Elma FINALLY made a go of things?

Diags appears to have gone with door number one; at least if his Instagram is anything to go by. On the same day the explosive series finale aired, Diags shared a lovey dovey snap of him and Jodie on his Instagram story. Although, he didn't caption the post, we're assuming he wouldn't have done this if the pair had called it quits/he's been making a go of it with Elma in the weeks since filming ended.

Earlier this year, Diags was linked to former TOWIE extra Jodie and their romance was confirmed in October when a teaser trailer showed Diags turning up to an event with new beau Jodie right in front of Elma’s face. Awkward…

Speaking to his BFF Dan Edgar about his romance, Diags explains in the trailer, “The ship has sailed [with Elma]. It’s made me move on with other things.”

Dan then asks, “Am I losing you to Jodie already?” before the teaser cuts to a seen of Diags and Jodie snogging at the beach as Dan looks on.

Diags was pictured kissing Jodie on a night out earlier this year and it seems that's how their romance blossomed as the TOWIE star has commented on one of Jodie's Insta pics with a heart eyes emoji before they went on a cruise together.

Despite being one of the show's longest running stars, Diags is better known for his friendships than his romances on the show.

What happened with Diags and Fran Parman?

Diags' split with Fran Parman came as quite the shock four years ago when he suddenly revealed he was single during an episode of TOWIE.

However, Fran later spoke out to reveal the reason for their break-up following an argument over a trip to Ibiza.

“We’d booked Ibiza and we’d just moved into a new flat and he was like, 'look, we can’t fully enjoy ourselves, we’re gonna have to go next year,' and I said, ‘fine, I totally understand that’ and then he just come in like, 'right, I’m going to Ibiza with the boys this weekend'.

“I said, 'it’s not about you going out with your mates. You don’t take me out. I’m just sitting indoors all the time and it’s not fair'. But he just couldn’t see that.

“So I was like, 'I’m going to go to Marbella with Georgia [Harrison]' and he didn’t like that. But I was just like, 'you know what, I’m doing it. I’ve got to be strong and I’m gonna do this'”, she told OK! magazine.

Following her return from Spain, Fran wanted to work on her relationship with Diags but he wasn’t interested in hearing her out.

“I thought, 'three and a half years is a long time, I want to work at this, I love this kid and I don’t want to break up with him'. He just said, 'yeah, we’re not working,' and I was like, ‘what?' and he was like, 'we don’t work anymore' and that was it. I had to pack my stuff and go."

Although they ended their relationship then and there, Fran later revealed she and Diags had continued sleeping together until 2019 when she returned to TOWIE. She later had a rather awkward reunion with her ex, who was clearly gobsmacked when he saw her.

“Ah man Diags looked so awkward when he saw Fran,” tweeted one viewer at the time, while another added, “Diags’ face when Fran walked over… the awkwardness!”

Remember when Love Island legend Kady McDermott joined TOWIE alongside then-boyfriend Myles Barnett back in 2018? At the time, she tried to set Diags up with best pal Jodie Charles but her efforts at playing Cupid didn't exactly go to plan when he admitted there was "no chemistry" between them. Added to that, there was huge Essex DRAMZ between Kady and now-axed co-stars Chloe Green and Courtney Meadows when they commented, "the bigger the hoop, the bigger the whore." Ouch. Gatsby and Tommy Mallet later made Diags come clean to Jodie and confess he didn't want to see her again in a rather awkward phone call.

But despite sharing a few snogs, their relationship never quite took off and Diags ended up calling things off for good.
