But, despite ‘some boys messaging [them both] at the same time’, the pair insist they would never fight over boys, with girl code ‘stepped up even by 1000%’ when it comes to each other.
Jess explains: ‘We’ve got so much respect for each other; we’re not going to argue over a boy!’
Talking about girl code in the villa, Eve said: ‘With Jess, I have the ultimate girl code. If someone upset her I’d never speak to them again. In the villa, I won’t be snake-y towards a girl, but if I like a guy I would say.
