Lewis has made it his mission to win back Nicole and in recent episodes viewers have seen the pair get along as friends again.
During Sunday's episode (1 November), Lewis revealed to James 'Lockie' Lock that he was confused by Nicole because she had turned her face away when he went to kiss her the other night.
Meanwhile, Nicole was seen visiting an animal physic with her cat Tinkerbell, and Nicole was told not to go back to a past relationship.
Speaking at the Mexican Day of the Dead party, Lewis said he didn't know where he stood with Nicole and asked if she was willing to give him another chance.
"You are a friend to me as well as anything else," she said. "I feel like I'm ready to see how things go and spend time with you. I've said I will go out, I just feel that good things come to those who wait."
Nicole said Lewis was "impatient", but he declared: "I want you in my life either way, whether I've got to be your friend, your boyfriend, confidante, mentor, whatever, I want to be in your life. I really care about you.
"I'm not going to be impatient. I'm not going to push things, but I want to see you, I want to date you, I want to take you out and have fun."
Nicole said she cared about him too, adding: "We're at a brilliant place. We're getting along and we should see how things go. I'm not going to go on a date with anyone else. We should be dating how we are, seeing each other and see how it goes."
After agreeing, Nicole wrapped her arms round Lewis and the pair shared a kiss.
