The co-stars got close again in Marbs last month and enjoyed a few "cheeky snogs", and even Bobby Norris has called them his "modern day Romeo and Juliet".
Speaking to Mail Online about her potential new romance, Jess said: "Pete's always been a big fan of mine and made a big effort, tried again and again to ask me out. We hit if off like a house on fire in Marbella and had a laugh. I like him as a person but we've only ever had a cheeky snog.
"We've not been on a date on our own really," she continued, "but I might go out with him soon because he's tried so hard. Girls definitely love him!"
Well, Pete and Jess do finally go on a date - in fact a double date with Ferne McCann and Liam Blackwell - which we can expect to see in a future episode of the show.
However, following her bitter break-up with Ricky Rayment last year, Jess is adamant that she doesn't want to get into another relationship just yet.
Having openly said in previous interviews that she's enjoying being single, Jess said: "I don't want to get into a relationship and Pete knows that. I'm looking for something casual."
