The well timed chat (cynical, us?!) saw both girls in tears in the early hours of this morning.
It followed a party and celebration between both the final six and a number of ex housemates in the house together.
"I owe you an apology," Helen said as she embraced Ashleigh, "Regardless of all the bitchy comments, I didn't mean to upset you ever, ever.
I don't care if people say shes just doing because they're leaving, they're not in this situation inside here."
Ashleigh replied: "Thanks Helen, that means so much."
Helen went on: "You've upset me and you never mean it, I never meant it, we just clashed.
"We were put in a situation where there were two girls left int he house with strong personalities."
As the pair continued to hug - and now both in tears - Helen told Ashleigh: "Good luck for winning and when you get out and I hope you get everything you want, every single thing, you deserve it."
She added: "Don't let anyone ever drag you down, whatever is out there when you get out of here, snatch it with two hands... unless your mum says no."
Ashleigh said: "I'm glad we sorted it before we left."
"We needed to!" quipped Helen.
