Pete Wicks: Jess isn't my type
Pete Wicks doesn't think Jess Wright is his "cup of tea."
The 'Only Way is Essex' hunk, 26, has been trying to pursue the brunette beauty, 30, for the past four months but has given up on her now after she shared a drunken smooch with Lewis Bloor during the show's series finale last month.
Asked if he thinks they can patch things up, Pete exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I think the ship for me and Jess has sunk rather than sailed - not in a bad way. Jess is a great girl and she'll make someone a great girlfriend but I think after all the Lewis Bloor stuff and after we fell out.
"As far as I'm concerned, she's such a lovely girl, I'd rather not fall out with her but other than a bit of chemistry, she's not really my cup of tea."
But that doesn't mean the hunky star has given up on love, as he's desperate to find a "wild" girl to settle down with.
He explained: "I like the wild ones. Jess is classy but she's at a different point in her life I think.
"I've been single for most my life so it would be nice to find someone to do all that stuff with."
However, one person Pete has ruled out is Lewis' ex-girlfriend Nicole Bass because he's not interested in stirring more trouble between him and his co-star.
Asked if he would get his own back on Lewis, 25, by dating his former flame, Pete said: "I wouldn't do that. I'm not interested in all that spiteful b******s."
