Pete Wicks has become quite the heartthrob thanks to his long hair, tattoos, handsome face and impeccable style.
But it’s not just women that are throwing themselves at him, as he has a much more unlikely admirer – Sam Thompson.
The ex MIC lad and the TOWIE star are unlikely best friends who now do fun things like have baths together.
Although Pete seems less enthusiastic about their budding friendship, the Celebs Go Dating alumni have already been on nights out together and are planning more.
Speaking exclusively to new! magazine about sharing a bath Pete said: “This is like Sam’s wet dream. It’s not really what best mates do.
“I definitely don’t do this with my best mates. I go to the pub – I don’t jump in a bath with them. This is like what odd couples do.”
However, Sam thinks it’s all completely normal and said: “This is what best mates do. It is. This is going to seal our bond. We are an odd couple!”
A reluctant Pete added: “I hate saying nice things about Sam because he gets all f**king giddy about it and it’s aggravating, but he is possibly one of the kindest people I’ve ever met.
“He’s the kind of person who would give you his last Rolo.
Sam cutely responded: “Behind the facade, he’s one of the most genuine blokes I’ve met. He’s obviously very good-looking as well, but he always looks out for his friends.
“He’s very kind. He’s also self-deprecating. Pete is going to take me to Sheesh and then we’ll go to Faces. I’ve already taken him to Bluebird and Raffles in Chelsea.”
