She's been on a date with the TOWIE hunk

Josie Gibson has met up with TOWIE‘s Tom Pearce in Salt Bar in London after he complimented her on her new slim look.

She says she wanted to meet up with Tom, 22, to explain a series of Tweets her ex Luke Sanwo sent after reading Tom‘s flattering comments about Josie.

‘He was so understanding about the Tweets and very endearing,’ Josie says.

‘He’s invited me on a night out with him and his mates soon, so I’ll definitely go on that. He is a really lovely guy and we get on well.’

Luke and Josie are currently ‘on a break’ after a split last month.

‘We’re just friends and I’m happy with the way it is at the moment,’ Josie says.
