They’ve admitted to having a drunken kiss with one another.

The outing comes after the show was hit by Ofcom complaints after the stars were seen visiting pubs and restaurants while the UK is in lockdown.

Ella opted for knee-high metallic boots and a beige shirt dress for their meeting.
While things appear to be hotting up between the two, Pete recently said: ‘I think Ella’s a lovely girl, I really do, but for me at the minute it’s more about doing me than it is going forward and doing anything with anyone else.
‘I would hope that Ella’s not expecting anything from that.’

Earlier this month, 64 people contacted the government regulatory body to complain about the programme since its launch.
Before the new series began, bosses clarified in a disclaimer that scenes for the 28th series were shot within strict Covid-19 protocol.
The announcement read: ‘The show will still be bringing you the cast’s real lives and stories, but to keep everyone safe TOWIE have had to create its own little world to film in.

‘So, although you may see cast in pubs and restaurants, don’t worry because they’ve opened just for the show and have put in lots of extra measures, so Lime Pictures and ITV can still bring you the TOWIE you love safely.’
During the first episode, stars such as Chloe Sims and her sister Demi were seen at a bar while the cast also celebrated a birthday party and visited each other’s houses.
According to a report from The Sun, the complaints to Ofcom were made about: ‘Filming in bars, restaurants and gyms during lockdown and food wastage.’
Tartan’s the word: Joey Turner, 19, also let his love for checkerboard prints be known, donning a pair of grey tartan bottoms and a crisp T-shirt
