It's been suggested that Michelle is refusing to pick up the phone to Max, but during the small conversations they have had, she's made it clear she doesn't want to see him.

A source said: "He's not on great terms with Michelle at the moment, especially after the whole sex text thing.

"She won't pick up the phone to him and has made it clear through the small conversations they've had he hasn't got a chance of visiting his pup."

In fact, this reminds us of a very similar situation between Lauren Goodger, Mark Wright and their pooch Wrighty when the TOWIE couple went their separate ways. And that didn't work out very well.

"He's absolutely gutted about it, he had grown so close to him and feels like he's lost one of his best mates.

"He loved that dog and is furious that even though he splashed the cash on it he'll never see it again."

Oh dear.
