The Only Way is Essex stars Pete Wicks and Ella Rae Wise were seen enjoying a steamy kiss outside Stringfellows Bar in London last week, seemingly confirming that their romance is back on.
Pete, 33, and Ella, 22, dated during the last series of the ITV2 show, however they ended up breaking it off.
The pair had attended ITV’s Summer Party at the Mandrake Hotel hours earlier before they left separately, and were later spotted kissing outside the nightclub in the early hours of the morning.
Pete and Ella were seen openly flirting and having a smooch among revellers. Ella looked stunning as she wore a plunging white embroidered dress with drop earrings and had her blonde hair styled in a neat top bun.
She was seen smiling as she stood in front of Pete, who was effortlessly put together in a white printed silk shirt and black jeans with his signature grown out barnet and beard.
The reality stars were photographed leaning in towards each other as they shared a steamy kiss following their night of partying.
Pete and Ella’s chemistry was one of the main talks of TOWIE’s series last year, after viewers were left hooked on their will-they won’t-they storyline. Despite having a kiss off-screen, the pair came to the decision to stay “flirty friends” at the time.
Ella joined TOWIE in 2019, after being scouted on the celebrity party scene, and previously dated Tom McDonnell and Roman Hackett.
Meanwhile Pete has had a string of high-profile relationships with TOWIE alumni Megan McKenna, Chloe Sims and Shelby Tribble.
Ella spoke about her chemistry with Pete in April, as she told Closer magazine: “When I said to the girls, 'we're quite flirty,' I think they took it as a little thing; they didn't realise how flirty we were.
"Even the show producers said, 'we can sit there and watch you look at each other.'"
Though the star acknowledged that there is a spark between them, she went on to address Pete's less than favourable track record: “Pete hasn't got the best track record when it comes to that and I've been hurt before, so I'm focusing on myself right now."
Ella optimistically added: "But never say never – if it happens, it happens. I’m not going put pressure on the situation. If it’s meant to be, it’ll find its way."
