The 21-year-old has been pictured snogging lovable lothario Pete Wicks outside a London club following a night out at the ITV Summer Party, sparking rumours their romance is back on.
TOWIE viewers will remember that the pair enjoyed a brief fling last year after they shared an off-screen kiss. However, they never made things official and decided to stay “flirty friends”.
Pete later ruled out dating Ella as he vowed to stay single until he “learned to love himself”, but could their latest snog mean he’s changed his mind?
In pictures obtained by The Sun, Ella can be seen smiling at Pete before grabbing him by the face as they lock lips. Her best pal and their TOWIE co-star Dani Imbert, who split from Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell last year, is pictured in the background.
After the pictures came to light, Ella took to Instagram to post about "peace" as she shared a glam selfie. Alongside a picture of her posing in the mirror, she wrote, "dnd [do not disturb] my inner peace ✌🏽."
Somehow we don't think there will be much peace on the set of TOWIE now these two are seemingly back on...
Last year, Ella opened up about the chemistry between her and Pete and told Closer, “When I said to the girls, ‘We’re quite flirty,’ I think they took it as a little thing; they didn’t realise how flirty we were. Even the show producers said, ‘We can sit there and watch you look at each other.’ He’s got really good chat.”
She added, “My mum says that him being older than me doesn’t matter, because my dad’s 10 years older than her. She and Pete get on really well; if we’re on the phone, she gets involved in our conversation – they have a little chinwag. I think she fancies him more than I do!”
Ella also admitted that Pete’s tumultuous on-screen dating life has caused her concerns, saying, “Everyone’s really worried about me getting hurt, but I can turn my feelings on and off. If I’m getting an inkling of, ‘Hold on a minute, he’s going to do me over here,’ then I’ll take a step back.
“Pete hasn’t got the best track record when it comes to that and I’ve been hurt before, so I’m focusing on myself right now. But never say never – if it happens, it happens. I’m not going put pressure on the situation. If it’s meant to be, it’ll find its way.”
