TOWIE newbie Peter Wicks will have competition if he wants to date co-star Jessica Wright, as she's been pictured on holiday with footballer Connor Wickham!

Essex starlet Jess, 29, was snapped kissing the 22-year-old Sunderland player on the beach in Marbella, sparking rumours of a romance.

Ooh… could Jess be the next Coleen or Alex?!

If Jessica was actually dating Connor, she could follow in the footsteps of former TOWIE co-star Billi Mucklow who is now engaged and expecting a baby with footballer Andy Carroll.

Another ex-co-star, Maria Fowler, dated footballer Lee Croft.

Jess hasn't mentioned Connor on the show and in the series premiere of TOWIE last night, it appeared her head had been turned by new boy Peter.

She was seen chatting with him on the beach in Marbs – and he was definitely flirting! Peter later admitted on the after show he fancied Jess the most out of all the girls.

Jess admitted there was a new man in her life during a recent interview with Fabulous magazine, but played coy, only saying: "It's early days. I'm absolutely not in a rush. It's going to be kept under wraps for a while until I'm sure, put it that way."

Could she have been speaking about Connor?!

Jess' last relationship was with former TOWIE co-star Ricky Rayment. They dated for two and a half years before splitting last year. He's now dating Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson.

Ten reasons we want to be on TOWIE!
