Pete himself shared a black love heart on the post and fellow TOWIE babe Georgia Kousoulou wrote: "Say it louder for the people at the back."

Former TOWIE star Vas J Morgan also told his celebrity pal: "I love you so much!!!! You should be incredibly proud and you look insane."

As Geordie Shore's Nathan Henry added: "YOU ARE EVERYTHING."

Revealing their romance today in an interview with The Sun, Pete said: "Yes our relationship has been more than just a friendship. It has been romantic.

"There have definitely been blurred lines over the last two-years. We haven't been officially seeing each other but there's definitely been times it's been more than just a friendship."

He added: "It's probably the worst kept secret in TV but yes there is a lot of love between us.

"I do love her and she is one of the most important people to me and hopefully I am to her but we have subsequently made a mess of our friendship.

The pair will be seen having couples' counselling on the show tonight – with Pete saying they'll "probably need a lot more".

Pete ruled out a potential relationship though, and even suggested it could be too late to save their friendship.

He said: "We have made a real mess of everything. I think we are better off just as friends.
