Despite being surrounded by their friends including Bobby Norris, Danielle Armstrong, Liam Blackwell, Ferne McCann and James 'Lockie' Lock, it looked like Jess and Pete only had eyes for each other.
Their cute public display of affection was captured by Ferne and Lockie on their individual Snapchat accounts.
Jess told Lockie that she was actually giving a worse-for-wear Pete some much needed cuddles. "I'm giving him hangover cuddles," she declared, as she sat on the sofa with him.
That didn't stop fans from seeing the pair look pretty affectionate towards each other with Pete stroking her leg, and Jess wrapping her arms over him.
Pete even gave Jess a peck on her arm when probed to kiss her by Ferne, and at one point, Pete's face was going red as Lockie grilled the pair.
Since the start of series 16, fans have been keeping their fingers crossed that romance will be on the cards for Pete and Jess after they shared a few "cheeky snogs" in Marbella.
Since being back in Essex, the pair went on a double date to a vineyard with Ferne and Liam. It was all going well until conversation got "deep", as Pete revealed how much he fancied Jess, only for her to admit they had chemistry but that she wasn't looking for a relationship.
Pete admitted he was "pretty f**ked off" with her comments, but she later apologised, saying she was "on the spot and just panicked".
Jess then asked Pete out on a date, and he agreed, on the condition that she would organise it.
So, during Sunday night's episode (25 October), Jess organised her second date with Pete at an ice skating rink to make up for their awkward vineyard double date the week before.
Everything went well, apart from Pete falling over on ice, and the pair soon wrapped up another date. Only as they were talking, Jess asked Pete for a high five, something which Pete later relayed back to the boys, hinting that he was in fact hoping for a kiss.
But, Jess has already confirmed that she and Pete will be going on a third date. So, watch this space!
