Towie’s Pete Wicks close to tears as Chloe Sims calls him ‘a p***k’ in heated row
PETE Wicks was on the verge of tears as he came face-to-face with Chloe Sims on Sunday night’s episode of The Only Way Is Essex.
Pete, 31, and Chloe fell out with one another earlier this year and didn’t see each other for months due to lockdown and the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, in the latest episode of the ITVBe show, they finally had it out after bumping into one another in the park.
Chloe began the awkward conversation by telling Pete: “I feel like you were dismissive. If you don’t like who I am then we can’t be friends.
Speaking about needing him during lockdown, she continued: “I didn’t know if you would be there if I reached out.”
Looking tearful, Pete replied: “I’ve never once – not once – no matter what row we’ve had, ever thought that I wouldn’t have you in my life – you obviously did.
“So as hurt as you may have been from that, and I apologise for that, you saying that hurt me.
“So why am I now gonna come up to you now and get told to f**k off again when you don’t want to speak to me?” he continued.
“I know I’ve done things wrong Chlo, and if I took that wrong and I didn’t appreciate how upset you were at the time then I’m sorry.”
Chloe then angrily replied: “Not if, you know, this is what p**ses me off about you. Because now we’re face-to-face, now I feel bad.
“When I sent you a big essay telling you how I felt, you still didn’t acknowledge it, you didn’t even reply Pete.
“I feel like you’ve got into this weird thing with me now where you need to be as stubborn as I am. What are you trying to prove?”
Later in the episode, the pair met up for cocktails and spoke about their situation some more – with Chloe telling Pete he had acted like “a p**ck”.
When I see you, it’s just you and it’s familiar and all of the things I’m p**sed off about go away,” she told him as she sipped on a Pornstar Martini.
“As much as I want us to go back to normal, but I don’t want you to do it again. I don’t want to do the rowing bit anymore.”
Hinting that there’s more to their feud than they’re letting on, she added: “You’re forgetting about the real problem. Don’t bring that up coz it really makes me switch.”
“I made a mistake and I’m sorry for that,” he replied. “I genuinely didn’t think it was as deep as what it obviously was.
“I’m gutted I haven’t had you in my life for however long it’s been. I do love ya and I’ve always loved you.”
The long-haired reality star then suggested that they go to couple’s therapy together, to which Chloe replied: “Yes! I can’t wait!”
Towie viewers definitely suspected that their row was more than just a friendship tiff – and took to Twitter to speculate.
