Pete Wicks has revealed that he had a two-year secret sex relationship with his co-star and girlfriend Chloe Sims.
Cast member TOWIE, 31, said that while they aren’t officially dating, there have been “fuzzy lines” since 2018.
The reveal comes after the reality TV stars stopped talking for several months following an argument and discussed their romance on Wednesday’s show.

Pete told The Sun, “Yes, our relationship has been more than just friendship. It was romantic. There have certainly been some blurry lines over the past couple of years.
“We haven’t officially seen each other, but there have certainly been times when it has been more than just friendship. “
“It was sexual, which made it very difficult.
Pete added that there was “a lot of love between” him and Chloe, 37, although they had not spoken for months after their split in January.
However, Pete said he didn’t think they would be able to maintain a relationship as things had already gotten too complicated.

Although he hopes to save their friendship, Pete admitted that it would take a lot of work and that it might already be too late.
He said: “I love her and she is one of the most important people to me and I hope I am to her, but then we messed up our friendship. “
