Nathan Henry insists Chloe Ferry and Sam Growland will be fine to continue working on "Geordie Shore".
The reality star has opened up after his two friends announced their breakup last week, and despite reports Chloe has refused to be with her former flame on screen, their pal thinks they will be able to get through filming.
Speaking to The Sun Online, he said: "At the end of the day we are a family, and no matter what happens we always do overcome things and try to work things out.
"Obviously tensions will rise when it comes to filming because it is quite fresh, it's going to affect them as a couple, it's going to affect the house, so I just think it's important that the rest of the house have the same mentality as me where we keep it neutral and we're just there to support one another."
Nathan added that the cast have been in touch with Chloe and Sam, both 23, following the news of their split, and he explained that he doesn't want to get caught choosing sides.
He revealed: "Obviously, I know what it's like to go through a break up so as soon as I heard the news I contacted Sam straight away.
"I also contacted Chloe, and it's not playing like devil's advocate, it's more of a case of being there and supporting them both, and respecting what they're going through and how they handle it.
"It's making sure I'm there as a friend and I'm there mentally for them both, so any of them need to talk about something, whatever they say to me will stay in confidence."
His comments follow reports that Chloe doesn't want to film scenes with her ex for the MTV reality show.
A source recently said: "Chloe has insisted she's not going to continue filming scenes with Sam. She's happy with him staying on the show because she can't rule his life but she's asked the producers to make sure he's no longer in her scenes. With Chloe, it's literally been a case of, "It's him or me."
"This has been really tough on them both but Chloe doesn't want to dread going back into the show she loves just because of her ex. She's adamant she can make it work, but she's got to wait for the bosses to make their minds up first."
