We all know that TOWIE’s Pete Wicks has got a, er, colourful relationship history, but did you know he has a secret son (maybe)?

Yep, you heard us right. Pete recently commented, "my son ❤️", on a picture of Ex TOWIE star Jayden Beales. Jayden replied, "dad ❤️".

There you have it, all the proof we need...

A few days earlier Jayden posted a picture of Pete Wicks with the caption, "LONDON 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧", suggesting the pair had been hanging out in the big city (maybe doing some wholesome father and son activities)...

Okay. Sorry to burst your bubble, but Pete isn't ACTUALLY Jayden's dad (in a biological sense at least). But why get hung up on the details? The fatherly bond is clearly there and that's enough for us tbh. But Pete definitely doesn't have a son (at least one that we know of).

This isn't the first time Pete's shared pictures of a "son". Last year the Essex pirate reposted a video of himself standing next to TikTok star Flynn Castles (known as Flynn.qua) which said, “Me n dad @p_wicks”.

In the clip Pete and his mini-me are both pulling his trademark smoulder and holding hairbands in their mouths as they pull their long hair up into top knots.

Pete Wicks takes savage swipe at CGD co-star Sam Thompson after signing up to second series

Hold on – is this Celebs Go Dating sign up joining TOWIE?

TOWIE EXCLUSIVE: Chloe Sims breaks silence on Pete Wicks and Ella Rae Wise's relationship

While Pete is not Flynn’s biological father, there’s no denying that they bare more than a passing resemblance and tbf, they both look HOT.

The next story shows Flynn and Pete posing on a staircase with the rest of Flynn’s TikTok collective - known as Icon House - with a teaser ahead of last night’s episode of Pete and Sam [Thompson]’s Reality News, which the TikTokers featured on.

Flynn and his housemates are part of a growing group of UK social media users living in “creator mansions” – huge homes rented out by savvy entrepreneurs and populated with already-very-successful influencers - who created top notch content in exchange for living RENT FREE.

It’s basically Big Brother for privileged teens who get to control what the public see via their Instagram and TikTok accounts.

Stephanie Pratt and Joey Essex in series 1

When the show was just a little bitty baby in 2016, Stephanie and Joey were its first ever forbidden celeb couple. Then dating expert Nadia Essex certainly made her feelings known as later Steph told us, "I try to block out bad memories, but she didn't accept that Joey and I were dating. She was evil to me when I was dating Joey, on and off camera."She was flirting with Joey."

The Icon House is following in the footsteps of Wave House and The Bytesquad here in blighty, which in turn took their cue from OG TikTok house The Hype House in – where else? – LA.

One episode of Pete and Sam's Reality News saw them visit Icon House to see exactly what the influencers got up to in a day as Pete made his return to the show after two weeks off.

During his time away from filming (he was also forced to miss Chloe Sims’ “biggest ever party” for her 40th birthday on TOWIE) Sam was joined on the news desk by his girlfriend, former Love Islander and fellow Made in Chelsea star Zara McDermott.
