The Only Way is Essex favourite Pete Wicks has spoken out about his friendship with co-star Chloe Sims as the pair were seen looking close at the recent National Television Awards.

The pair sparked new romance rumours after being photographed leaving the NTAs together.

The TOWIE stars previously surprised fans when their secret two-year romance became public, but things between them seemingly ended in the Christmas special episode of the hit ITV show.

The former couple reportedly did not speak to each other for months after the bombshell episode was filmed but have since managed to form a friendship.

After seeing them walking arm-in-arm following the swish London event, some fans of the pair think romance could be back on the cards for the duo, who still seem to enjoy each other's company.

However Pete, 32, revealed to The Sun that the pair are just “friends” now and their romantic relationship is “in the past”.

He said: “We are good as gold. We have been doing some filming together. I love filming with Chloe and Diags because we all have such a good laugh.

"Things are all good. We have known each other so long and we have been through so much so it is nice that we are back to having fun and being pals.

"There is no awkwardness. Chloe is amazing. She is one of the closest people to me other than Lockie.”

Pete was keen to make the point that he and Chloe, 39, are “such good friends”.

He said: “You have to take every day as it comes. We had a break from each other which was needed.


"What happened was in the past. We are both over the situation. The foundation of me and Chloe is that we were such good friends.”

He went on: "We are friends. I am not going to speculate about this, that and the other because speculation gets you in trouble.

"We are friends and I am really happy that we are friends."

Chloe recently updated her fans on her relationship with Pete after a fan asked: "Are you and Pete friends again?"

"We never stopped," she said on her Instagram story. "We just took time out. He had to go in the naughty corner," Chloe joked, before adding a winking face emoji.
