And now, Pete has confessed all as the told The Sun Online: “It's probably the worst kept secret in TV but yes there is a lot of love between us.

“I do love her and she is one of the most important people to me and hopefully I am to her but we have subsequently made a mess of our friendship.

“It is very hard to maintain a friendship when you do that because the lines get blurred and emotions get involved.

“We have couples' counselling to try and resolve the issues but we probably need a lot more. It was just a one off.”

The reality star continued: “We have made a real mess of everything. I think we are better off just as friends.

“The problem now is we have to navigate our way moving forward as just friends.

“I think we need to take a step back and think, do we really want this in our lives?

“To be honest even friendships shouldn't be this hard.

“At the end of the day we do want to save our friendship because we love each other to bits. We can be a real dream team most of the time.

“We do love each other but the problem is we are so different and always end up fighting.”
