Lewis Bloor eyed up Jess Wright kiss since he was 11
Lewis Bloor has wanted to kiss Jess Wright since he was 11.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star came under fire after he locked lips with his co-star late last year while she was romancing Pete Wicks, but he has admitted he doesn't regret the passionate smooch because he's wanted it for so long.
He said: "Jess - she's beautiful. I've known her since I was nine years old and I'd been waiting for that kiss for 15 years!"
And, although the pair have managed to patch up their differences since falling out over the tongue twisting kiss, the 26-year-old hunk has decided to move away from the beauty.
He explained: "We're totally cool again. She was upset about the way the details of our kiss came out and the fact I was so arrogant about the whole thing.
"I'm moving out of the flat [in the same block as Jess] because I don't want things to be awkward between us."
Meanwhile, Lewis may have spent five weeks in York doing pantomime, but he is adamant he's not ready to turn his back on 'TOWIE', the show that made him famous, just yet.
Asked if he's thinking of quitting the programme, he told Star magazine with a giggle: "Absolutely not. Why else would you watch if it wasn't for me? Everyone else gets along. I'm looking forward to spicing things up next series."
