*New celeb couple alert*
The pair have been good pals for a while now, and Geordie Shore babe Vicky shared a picture next to the TOWIE hunk as they prepared to walk down the red carpet.
Taking to Instagram, the 31-year-old can be seen pouting up a storm in a red, floor-length gown.
Meanwhile, Pete, 30, looks just as stylish as ever in an all-black suit with his trademark long hair resting on his shoulders.
Next to the snap, Vicky wrote: ‘You are prettier than me for God’s sake @p_wicks01.’
Before adding: ‘I’m off to wallow in self pity now and eat carbs.’
And before long fans rushed to the photo to beg these two to get together, as one wrote: ‘Can u guys plz b a couple already @vickypattison 😍🤗🔥’.
‘@vickypattison your babies would be STUNNING!! You two!! X,’ said another, while a third added: ‘couple goals! Pleaseeee get together you’d be the hottest couple ever!😍’
While a fourth wrote: ‘You & Pete – My Ideal Couple.’
Essex lad Pete then added fuel to the fire when he commented himself, writing: ‘There she is’ alongside a fist emoji and a heart eyes emoji. Interesting…
This comes after Vicky recently revealed she’s ready to start dating again after splitting from former fiancé John Noble last year.
The I’m A Celebrity winner was left heartbroken in November when pictures emerged of John getting cosy with multiple other women in Dubai.
And while Vicky has kept fairly quiet over the break-up, the Newcastle native captured the drama for her new reality show and posted a sneak-peek earlier this week.
In the teaser clip – shared with her 4.2million Instagram followers on Friday night – Vicky breaks down in tears as she explains: ‘A week ago, I was marrying him. A week ago, he was my future and my life.’
Captioning the clip, she said: ‘This was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
‘But making this show gave me a focus, a welcome distraction in an otherwise very dark moment in time and I hope you all can respect my decision.’
