The latest TOWIE hunk looks like a different man!

TOWIE has been heating up recently and it’s not just the Essex drama that’s got our pulses racing.

Oh no, no, no. The ITV reality show has welcomed a brand new man into the mix – 26-year-old Pete Wicks. Swoon.

He’s not your regular TOWIE fella though, y’no, slicked back hair and clean-shaven face. Pete is actually the total opposite rocking long dark locks and a body covered in tatts. Yes, he IS beautiful.

Pete hasn’t always looked like this though. The reality star took to Instagram on Thursday morning and shared a throwback Thursday photo of himself with the caption:

Little #tbt with my boy @chrissy_wallis ✌️’

Check the pic above…

Wow! What a difference. In the blimmin’ beautiful snap, Pete rocks a shaven head and has noticeably fewer tattoos.

What a change to the selfie that Pete shared on Tuesday when he headed to London’s ITV studios. In the photo, Pete flaunts long tied-back hair and neck tattoos.
Oh, he’s got us all hot under the collar!

It’s not just us regular folk who have fallen for the Essex newbie though as TOWIE star Jessica Wright, 29, also seems to share a connection with Pete.

In the first episode of TOWIE in Marbella there appeared to be a fair bit of chemistry between the pair as they discussed their dogs on the beach but Pete’s pal Dan Edgar wasn’t too impressed.

In fact, Dan, who has previously dated Jess, warned Pete to ‘swerve it’.

Speaking to Pete, Dan admitted: ‘I have no problems you going there at all. That’s irrelevant. I just feel from a man-to-man point of view, I feel like it’s hard to have a laugh with her when she hasn’t had a drink. When you’re out with her and she’s had a drink she’s a good laugh.’

Ouch!

Tune in to TOWIE on ITVbe Sundays and Wednesdays at 10pm.

The pictures that prove Dan Osborne’s proposal to Jacqueline Jossa was the best EVER!
