THE Only Way Is Essex’s Ella Rae Wise is dating an Ibiza Weekender star following another fling with Pete Wicks, The Sun Online can reveal.
In the latest episode of Towie, Pete and Ella – who have an 11-year age difference – were filmed on a date as they celebrated her birthday.
The co-stars have been spotted holding hands and passionately kissing in the past, too.
But The Sun Online can exclusively reveal that Ella and Pete are already off again – after she found pastures new.
The pair met while filming new MTV series The Challenge in Argentina and have formed a “strong bond”.
A source told us: “Callum is so far from Ella’s normal type but everything seems to be working out really well.
“They only met a few times before they started filming The Challenge in Argentina.
“They got really close after a couple of weeks and they’ve got such a strong bond. They look perfect together.”

The insider added: “No one was expecting a relationship to blossom between Ella and Callum.
“They live on opposite ends of the country but hopefully they can make it work.
“Everyone is so happy to see Ella with a man who will respect her and treat her the way she deserves.”
The Sun Online has contacted reps for both Ella and Callum.
In August, Ella exclusively told The Sun Online that that she enjoys “cheeky snogs” with Pete.
At the time, she was dating her Towie co-star Jordan Brooks and admitted her secret kisses with Pete had to stop as a result.
Ella and Jordan have now split, with their breakup being played out on Towie, and she was seen with Pete during a “mates’ date” on the latest instalment of the ITVBe show.
Telly fans turned on the pair, though, claiming they gave them “the ick” because of their age difference.
One said: “Gives me the ick.”
Another added: “Is the Pete and Ella story really necessary? I’m pretty sure I’m not the only viewer who finds it uncomfortable to watch!”
