Earlier in the episode, viewers were treated to a trip down memory lane as the show looked back over Chloe and Pete’s friendship while a reflective Pete drove around Essex.

The pair have been at loggerheads in recent episodes after they went eight months without speaking after falling out.

Things came to a head during a couples therapy session last week to save their friendship, where it was revealed they had a two year sexual relationship.

And after therapist Anna Williamson advised they take a break, the two finally reunited at the Sugar Hut, where they discussed how they were feeling.

Pete told Chloe: ‘I wasn’t that fussed about coming tonight, but I thought I needed to come and see you.

‘I have not enjoyed this week, not seeing you, but I felt like it was the best thing for us.’

While Chloe responded that it was ‘good’ they took Anna’s advice.

As they discussed their therapy, Chloe told Pete that she couldn’t believe that he had ‘blurted’ our the secret of their sexual relationship, insisting that it had ‘always been our secret’.

She said: ‘I just can’t believe you blurted it out, I know it’s a therapy session and you’re meant to tell the truth, but it’s always been our secret.

‘I know people had their thoughts about it, but to confirm it, I was a little bit shocked.’ 

While Pete told her that it was good they could get it ‘out in the open’, adding that it had been a ‘weight off my shoulders’.

He continued: ‘I didn’t do it for any reason other than I think we have both carried it for the past couple of years and it’s not done us much good, it needed to be said.

‘That way me and you can work past it rather than trying to keep a secret from everyone, and everything making assumptions and not understanding how much love and emotion there is between me and you’

And as the duo looked to finally be getting things back on track, the tattooed star stunned Chloe by revealing that he would be ‘going away for a while’ for ‘work’. 

As Chloe lamented being separated from him again, saying she’d be ‘vulnerable’ without him, Pete insisted: ‘I’m going away but I’m coming back.’
