In the first episode of the new series it appeared there was chemistry between Peter and Jessica, especially when they were chatting about their dogs on the beach.
But on last night's episode, we saw Dan seeming to warn Peter off. Viewers saw Dan and Jess enjoying a few non-date dates on the last series but the romance later fizzled out.
Pete had said: "At the start of the week, me and Jess got on really well but since then she's been proper aloof and mysterious."
Dan replied: "I have no problems you going there at all. That's irrelevant. I just feel from a man to man point of view, I feel like it's hard to have a laugh with her when she hasn't had a drink. When you're out with her and she's had a drink she's a good laugh."
"It's good to hear your point of view," said Pete.
Dan then started saying, "Man to man advice…" before Pete finished for him: "Swerve it?"
"Swerve it," agreed Dan.
Fans were quick to leap to Jess' defence with one tweeting: "Who would swerve Jess Wright! You'd be lucky that she talks to you!" Another said: "That was poor advice! Never swerve a class act like @MissJessWright_!"
We don't reckon Jess will mind too much though as she was recently seen kissing up a storm with Sunderland footballer Connor Wickham in Marbella
