Former TOWIE star Tom Pearce spent the weekend hanging out with Pixie Lott and Oliver Cheshire at Virgin Media's V Festival.

We spotted the Essex star having a great time in the fancy Virgin Media Louder Lounge and looking rather handsome… makes us miss him on our screens twice a week!

Here he is posing with fellow Louder Lounge guests:

Tom spent plenty of the weekend hanging out with popstar Pixie and her model boyfriend Oliver, which had us wondering what the connection may have been…

Well, we all know Pixie is from Essex, and back in 2011 it was reported that TOWIE bosses had offered her brother Stephen a contract to appear in the show, but he turned it down.

"My brother Stephen has been asked to go on it," said Pixie at the time. "He's best mates with Joey Essex's best mate. Joey's always round our house."

Stephen is friends with Tom and, in the words of Chandler Bing, that's the trail, we did it!

Tom quit The Only Way Is Essex last year to focus on his career in banking, saying at the time: "I was not dropped from the Xmas special. I quit to concentrate on my job."

He had joined the show during series five in 2012, and romanced Lauren Goodger and Lauren Pope on screen, as well as Lucy Mecklenburgh and George Harrison.
