Towie's Ella Wise reveals secret meetings with ex Pete Wicks – but says he should be with Chloe Sims

THE Only Way Is Essex's Ella Wise has confessed to meeting up with Pete Wicks and having a "flirt" with him.

But the 21-year-old reality star insists they are nothing more than friends and that the long-haired Lothario is made for Chloe Sims.

Ella enjoyed a brief romantic dalliance with Pete earlier this year before he decided he was better off single.

Prior to their fling, it was revealed he had been secretly sleeping with co-star Chloe on and off for two years.

Ella has now admitted that although she "wouldn't say no" to a Christmas kiss with Pete, she just wants to see him get together with his best pal Chloe.

Speaking to Bobby Norris for The Sun's exclusive digital show The Official Christmas Afterparty, Ella said she bumped into her former flame while filming the Towie festive special.

She added: "It was very nice to see him. I mean, long time, but we're still exactly the same as we were before. We're friends, we like a little flirt, but it's harmless."

Ella is making an explosive return to Towie for this year's Christmas one-off.

But when asked by Bobby if she'd had a "cheeky snog" with Pete under the mistletoe, Ella said: "No, there wasn't. Not this year."

The star went on to admit she "wouldn't have said no" to a Christmas kiss, but was keen to stress that Pete would have had to make the first move.

Bobby then asked Ella what she thought of Pete's 'Chloe' tattoo.

The ladies' man had the etching done on his hand as a present for Chloe's 40th birthday last month.

During an episode of Towie, he was seen telling her: "The point of that is, you do mean everything to me and for anyone else who feels like I don't or for anyone you feel like I've not justified this to, I do love you to bits."

Ella admitted: "It's lovely. I even said to him myself, away from everyone, 'It was a really nice gesture. Why don't yous two just get together?'
