Viewers know there's been bad blood between the boys in recent episodes, after Mike waded into rumours surrounded Pete's girlfriend Megan McKenna.
If you remember, Megan's been accused of "grinding" with another man in Marbs, and Mike added fuel to the fire by saying his friends thought Megan was being flirty while on her girls' holiday.
Megan has denied it all and Pete was furious that Mike didn't just come to him first. "I feel like he stabbed me right in the back," he said. "I don't want to be around people with no loyalty." Mike has said he only told Pete because he'd want the boys to tell him if it was his girlfriend.
Mike, meanwhile, had another off-camera row with Megan, and shouted "you goer" at her.
On Wednesday night's episode (27 July), Pete and Mike came face to face again after Lockie brought them together. But it didn't exactly end in a friendship reborn…
Mike told Pete: "If you want to clear the air, I'm sweet with you, if you don't, that's cool."
"I don't think clearing the air will cut it when you're going around calling my bird a slag," retorted Pete.
Mike admitted it had been "out of character" for him to clash with Megan, saying: "I don't scream and shout at birds and lose my temper and my rag but in the heat of the moment I did. She said a few things that got my back up and I reacted the way I did, which ain't on and ain't acceptable, so I will go and speak to Megan when I can and apologise."
Pete said all he wanted was for Mike to apologise to Megan, and he didn't want any apology himself. "All I wanted out of this was you apologising to her. I couldn't give a monkeys what you say to me no far. As far as I'm concerned, we ain't pals."
Mike agreed and said: "The way you acted and got in my face, I don't want a friend of mine to do that. I don't think going forward we will be pals."
But Pete replied: "As far as getting in your personal space, I have every right to do that if you go around sh*t stirring."
Mike said: "I ain't stirring anything! You're delusional. F**king idiot."
That led to the boys squaring up and Pete shouting: "You're a bitch and that's the end of it. Everyone f**king knows it about you. Everyone knows you ain't got no f**king nuts. You stick with that and you live with that. As far as I'm concerned, we aren't pals."
"That's sweet," said Mike. "Just leave it at that."
