They may both now be completely smitten (Lockie has rekindled his romance with Danielle Armstrong, while Pete is so loved-up with Megan McKenna), but it sounds we'll still be getting to see our favourite bromance on screen.
Pete and Lockie's friendship has become our personal fave of ours, and proving his pal stills holds a dear place in his heart, Pete tweeted his affections for Lockie ahead of TOWIE filming.
The reality star tweeted: "Can't wait to see you...@JamesLock__"
And, of course, he added an emoji blowing a kiss. We LOVE that.
Can't wait to see you...@JamesLock__— Pete The Pirate (@P_Wicks01) July 1, 2016
Lockie, so far, is yet to respond, but we're pretty sure the feeling is most definitely mutual. He and Pete will reunite in Mallorca as our Essex faves have headed to Palma to film for TOWIE's brand new series.
Bobby Norris exclusively told Reveal that he and his co-stars would be heading overseas. He revealed: "Here's a cheeky exclusive for you! Me and the gang are heading out to Palma, Mallorca, for our holidays in a few weeks, and will be filming the first episode of the new series."
While we're sure we can expect the usual TOWIE drama, Lockie's girlfriend Danielle has assured fans there won't be any tears from her this time round.
Hoping that the other couples on the show will find themselves at loggerheads and not her and James, Danni told us: "We've done our time with all of the TOWIE drama. Now the other couples can have a turn.
"We'll always bicker. That's our relationship. We take the mickey out of one another, that's us. That's why we love each other. We'd be boring if we didn't argue."
Let's just hope Pete and Lockie's much anticipated reunion doesn't get in the way!
Speaking about his BFF, Pete joked that he favours Lockie to girlfriend Megan as she is more "demanding." He said: "Megan's more demanding than Lockie, so I have to see her all the time. I think about him more."
"Bromance before romance," he added.
That didn't seem to sit too well with Megs, though, and she hit back: "You're such a liar... Pete, don't wind me up."
Oh, how we've missed you guys!
