Pete Wicks is 5ft10 and often makes jokes about his co-stars being too tall.
He previously joked: "I'm too short for Ferne McCann. I'm only 5ft 10 on a good day.
"When I film with Lewis Bloor or James Lock I look like a f***ing borrower. It does my nut in."
Pete Wicks seems to be single at the moment.
He has previously enjoyed a string of high profile relationships, with the likes of fellow Towie star Megan McKenna.
Before appearing on Towie, Pete dated Ex on The Beach’s Harriette Harper and he also had a fling with Verity Chapman who appeared on the reality show in 2015.
After splitting with Megan in 2017 after a year-and-a half together, Pete also dated fellow TOWIE star Shelby Tripple, but the pair eventually split.
