So far the pair have been the 'Will they? Won't they?' couple of the series. Since fans found out about Jess and Pete's cheeky kiss in Marbella, we've all been itching for them to get together. The rugged pirate Essex boy and the ultra glam Essex girl, they'd be the perfect fit, right?
While we had hoped so, Jess recently shut down any hopes of a romance with herself and Pete. But has she now changed her mind?
New pictures show Jess and Pete deep in conversation while filming new scenes for the ITVBe reality show during a night out in Essex.
And with their convo seeming pretty intense, we wonder if Pete was trying to persuade Jess to come round to the idea of dating him? Oh, we so hope so!
During TOWIE's last episode, viewers were left disappointed as Jess told Pete she didn't want a relationship with him.
The pair had enjoyed a double date with Liam Blackwell and Ferne McCann and while there, Pete put himself on the line by telling Jess how he really feels about her.
He said: "I've got a lot of respect for you, you know that. And I couldn't have been more respectful to you over the time that me and you have spent together, and regardless of what happens, I like you as a person, genuinely. I fancy the pants off her, yeah."
Jess seemed to reject her co-star's advances, though, telling him she didn't feel ready to commit. "I feel like with us, we really get on," she said. "We have major chemistry no matter what... I just don't know if I want a relationship right now."
However, just when we thought love wouldn't blossom for the duo, Jess made sure to keep our romances hopes alive.
She cryptically tweeted: "Just wait for next ep [smiley face emoji] I have a lot of time for this one @P_Wicks01 & stay tuned."
Now, we're just itching to hear what was said between them in these latest pics!
TOWIE continues Wednesday 21 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
