Cue hearts breaking everywhere...
The good-looking Essex boy confessed he is now taken, but made sure not to give too much away on his new romance when we caught up with him ahead of TOWIE's new series.
Rumours had been doing the rounds that Pete is now dating TV presenter Riah Read, after he brought her along as his plus one to James Lock's recent restaurant launch. She has also been spotted cuddling up to Pete's two dogs Ernest and Eric on Instagram - making us think things could be pretty serious between the pair.
Quizzing Pete on his new flame, the reality star simply told us: "I am seeing someone, yes."
But while he was choosing to play coy on the whole thing, Danielle Armstrong and Bobby Norris seemed to give everything away by launching into song about Riah. And that was all the confirmation we needed!
We asked if Pete was planning to introduce fans to his new squeeze on TOWIE, but he insisted he wanted to keep his romance away from the cameras for the mean time.
Pete added: "I am keeping that a bit separate for now, but you never know. It's really early days, it's not like there is marriage on the cards – it's only been a couple of weeks. But, I am seeing someone."
Pete was last linked to his former co-star Jessica Wright. Their 'Will they? Won't they?' storyline had us all hooked for months, but it later became clear the pair were better off as friends.
Back in December, Pete told us: "For me and Jess, I know everyone wanted me and her to get together, but it was probably never going to go that way. Nothing's really changed. We still get on really well, it's still the same thing. We've always kind of been friends anyway with the odd cheeky kiss here and there."
Jess has since announced she has left TOWIE. The 30-year-old told fans now is the right time for her to "step away" from the show after five years and 16 series.
TOWIE returns this Sunday 28 February at 10pm on ITVBe.
