TOWIE 's Chloe Sims has reportedly broken things off with on/off beau Pete Wicks, sources claim.
The pair, who star in The Only Way Is Essex together, have been best friends for years and following much speculation that things had turned romantic, as Pete came clean about the romance last week.
Pete, 32, told his pals on the show who he and Chloe "blurred the lines" of the sweet and very close friendship they had going in.
Last week Chloe, 39, also unfollowed her former pal and lover on Instagram.
And now sources have reportedly told new! magazine that she has cut the star off for good.
The source claimed to the publication: "Chloe is in love with Pete and she’s told him as much.
"They’d been close and spending time together again. She decided to pour her heart out to him and admit she wants to be with him and give things a proper go.
"But Pete backed off, insisting that as much as he does love her, he just doesn’t want to be her boyfriend.
"Chloe was really hurt and this was her breaking point. She decided she can’t keep him in her life and so she cut him out."

The source continued by saying Chloe is "devastated" because she "put her cards on the table" and "allowed herself to be vulnerable, only to be rejected by him again".
They added: "It hurts but she knows she can’t spend another Christmas feeling lonely and pining for him."
Mother-of-one Chloe was also reportedly hopeful that Pete would be the man she finally settled down with, the source claimed.
They continued: "Of course, she’s reacted emotionally because she had her heart broken again by Pete.
"She knew it was a risk, but deep down she hoped he’d realise over time how good they are together and change his mind."
Speaking to The Sun this week, Pete confirmed his relationship with Chloe has been a romantic one at times, as he confessed lines had been "blurred".
He said: "Yes our relationship has been more than just a friendship. It has been romantic.
"There have definitely been blurred lines over the last two-years. We haven't been officially seeing each other but there's definitely been times it's been more than just a friendship."
