TOWIE stars Georgia Kousoulou, Tommy Mallet and Lewis Bloor have spilled the beans on what new boy Peter Wicks is really like, claiming the 26-year-old is one super-cool guy.

Here at Reveal HQ we were excited to see a fresh face joining our Essex faves out in Marbella and it seems the TOWIE girls were just as excited by the good-looking new arrival.

A friend of James Lock, Peter jetted out to Marbs make his TOWIE debut and his co-stars have exclusively told Reveal they were more than happy to have him on board.

Before catching up with Georgia, Tommy and Lewis we already knew that Peter was besties with Lockie, he works on the party circuit in London, is currently single and absolutely adores his French bulldog Earnest.

Not looking like your typical Essex boy with his shaggy long locks, rugged beard and an impressive tattoo collection, we were keen to find out how Peter has been settling in. And when we brought his name up into conversation, Tommy was quick to tell us he was a fan of the newbie.

"He is one cool geezer," Tommy told us. "From the moment we met him, he was our mate."

Lewis added: "Pete is cooler than cool, he's ice cold. He makes me look like a bit of a yuppy. He looks like Captain Jack Sparrow's little brother."

Proving Peter was an instant hit with his male co-stars, Tommy said he would now consider the newcomer as one of his close friends, even though he only met him a week ago!

Lewis revealed he took Pete under his wing, introducing him to all the girls while out in Marbs, and all week we've been trying to guess which girls may have caught Peter's eye.

Not only was he spotted playing volleyball with Jessica Wright, he was then seen enjoying a few drinks with Ferne McCann and Lauren Pope.

While Lewis wasn't prepared to reveal if Pete enjoyed a holiday romance, he did suggest Ferne took a liking to the new boy.

"I introduced him to Lauren and Ferne and one of the funniest things happened," Lewis explained. "Ferne had this flirting voice on, she was saying 'so Peter do your tattoos mean anything?' in this weird voice. You'll see."

Lewis also assured us that he wouldn't stand in Peter's way if he was to go after his ex-girlfriend Lauren. The pair dated for a brief time last year, before splitting bitterly after Lauren found out Lewis had cheated on her.

"The lesson I took from my relationship with Lauren is never to rush into things," he said. "Things happened very quickly between us. I guess it would be nice for her to find a man and not a boy, like I was."

Meanwhile, it's not just the single girls that Peter has made a good impression on as Georgia told us he had been making a lot of effort with everyone on the show whether they were a boy, girl, single or taken.

She even suggested his arrival had helped to bring her co-star Dan Edgar out of his shell. Apart from dating Jess last series, Dan has stayed fairly quiet and away from the drama on the show, but now, Georgia and Tommy have insisted he is "one to watch out for" in the new series.

"A lot of us bonded with him. His loyalties are still with Fran and Diags - who I don't talk to - but out there, Dan was with the boys and we got on really well," Tommy said.

Viewers will finally be introduced to Peter and be reacquainted with the rest of the cast this Sunday as TOWIE returns to screens with its Marbs special.

Following the episode, the TOWIE stars will join Mark Wright for live spinoff All Back To Essex where they'll be sharing all the gossip from their trip away overseas.

We. Can't. Wait.

TOWIE returns Sunday 14 June at 10pm on ITVBe.
