TOWIE star Pete Wicks is looking for love again – on Celebs Go Dating.
The Sun Online can reveal he’s signed up for the show for a second time after failing to find love last year.
The Essex lad appeared last time on the show in February 2019 – but sparks were yet to fly.
An insider told The Sun Online: “Pete really wants to settle down and loved taking part in the show last time, so he’s decided to have another crack at finding love and signed up for a second series.”
While on the popular E4 dating show, Pete didn’t have any luck in love – but he did make amends with his ex Megan McKenna, plus a blossoming bromance with Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson.
Megan and Pete broke up in October 2017 after a very public and fiery relationship, that saw them regularly argue on The Only Way Is Essex.
After eventually calling it quits and both moving on with new partners, there were still many angry exchanges on social media when various cheating rumours surfaced.
The pair split in 2017 after a year-and-a half together when Pete was caught supposedly texting other women including Instagram model Jacqui Ryland.
After his stint on the show, Pete got together with mum-of-one, Georgina Elizabeth Mullins – but it wasn’t to last.
As well as singer Megan, the curly-haired ladies’ man has had quite an extensive list of exes.
Before appearing on Towie, Pete dated former Ex on The Beach star Harriette Harper.
He then reportedly had a fling off camera with Verity Chapman who appeared on the reality show in 2015.
Pete ‘The Pirate’ was then rumoured to have hooked up with Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby after been spotted out looking cosy together.
Former Love Islander Amber Davies was the next reality beauty to supposedly be dating the Essex boy.
Pete was pictured with Elisha Hayuraszek in February 2018, after she won a date with him through a Valentine’s Day competition – but that ended.
As well as Pete, Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips has signed up for Celebs Go Dating alongside Chloe Ferry.
The beauty is set to look for love in another reality show as The Sun Online can exclusively reveal she’s part of the next series’ line-up.
She’ll be joined by Geordie Shore beauty Chloe Ferry, who The Sun Online revealed was on her first socially distant date this week.
The starlet sat two metres away from her date, who was clad in all black, during their romantic picnic abiding by the government’s guidelines.
While a number of other reality shows such as, Love Island, got the chop this year thanks to the pandemic, the E4 dating show will go ahead, albeit virtually.
But the show will look a bit different as the dating skills of four celebrities will be to the test as they try their hand at love online.
Celebs Go Virtual Dating will be a spinoff to Celebs Go Dating but will bring all the dating drama of its sister show.
The virtual love fest will come added challenges of video vetting matches and trying to find that spark on a socially distanced date.
The series will see expert dating agents, Paul C Brunson and Anna Williamson return to the celebrity dating agency, assisted by celeb confidante, Tom Read Wilson.
