Pete Wicks certainly lived up to his Pirate Pete nickname today as he began filming the news series of TOWIE in Gran Canaria.

The gorgeous reality star uploaded this rather moody shot to his Snapchat account on Tuesday, 16 February, looking every inch the pirate.

Captain Jack would be proud!

His caption read: "Erm." Nothing erm about it, Pete, you look gorgeous. As always!

Though it seems he hasn't quite mastered his New Year's resolution yet. He told us last year one of his goals for 2016 was perfecting the art of a Hollywood smile for the camera. "I need to try to learn how to smile," he said. "I can't smile on cue, I can smile normally and then as soon as the camera comes out…"

Pete arrived on the sunny holiday island with a slew of co-stars yesterday, to film scenes for the first episode of the upcoming 17th series.

It should be a very different series for Pete as Jessica Wright announced today she'd quit the show. His storylines so far had been dominated by his on-off, will they-won't they romance with Jess, so now she's gone, perhaps we'll see Pete meeting a new lady or just playing the field.

TOWIE returns to ITVBe soon.
