The reality stars were seen playing pool together on last night's episode of the ITVBe show, prompting us all to ask: is there a new Essex couple on the scene?
According to Jess, not quite yet!
She told the official TOWIE website: "I had a lovely time with Pete. I wouldn't call it a date, it's more friends getting to know each other. He's a lovely boy and we do have chemistry. We get on really well. The banter is always flowing between us so it was nice."
Jess went on to say: "I don't want to get into dating at the minute because there is so much pressure. Everyone is like, 'Jess and Pete are together'. No, We've gone out on our own and had a good time!
"I don't want it to go into a dating thing but I do enjoy spending time with him. I suppose we'll see what happens and see where it goes. I don't want to be on candlelit dinner dates and stuff like that because before you know it, everyone in Essex is like, 'Pete and Jess are together!'"
TOWIE airs Wednesdays and Sundays at 10pm on ITVBe.
