Jess' close friend and co-star Danielle has said in a new video interview that Jess and Pete are still exchanging "flirty" messages.
On the series finale we saw Pete storming off after Verity Chapman quizzed him about rumours he'd been flirting with Jess.
"I think they still text," said Danielle in a video on the TOWIE website. "They always had a little connection, even in Marbella you could tell there was chemistry.
"I think Pete and her, there's definitely a little bit of chemistry, they're still texting, there's a little bit of flirty messaging going on, so we'll see. Watch this space!"
Jess met newbie Pete in Marbs and there appeared to be an instant attraction. While flirting and discussing their pet dogs, the pair agreed to meet up in Essex.
A few weeks later they went on a date playing a game of pool, but decided not to take things further and just remain friends. However, at the series finale carnival party, it emerged that Pete had sent a flirty text to Jess.
It ended in Pete arguing with Verity, who he had spent a lot of time with and had already kissed. Pete said later in a video interview that he wouldn't rule out a future with Verity, but said they needed to have some space.
