There have been more romances during 13-odd series of The Only Way Is Essex than we can even begin to count, and now even ex-cast members are at it as Tom Pearce and Amy Childs are rumoured to be dating!
Oh SHAHT AHP. We can’t keep up with all these have-they-haven’t-they-have-they-just-shared-a-sausage-plait confusion.
After Amy tweeted a cryptic photo of a ring from “someone special,” speculation started rumbling that 23-year-old Tom was the mystery man, and if we’re honest, we’re definitely into the idea.
Seriously, we reckon they’d make a dead cute couple. <3
Amy split from footballer Adam Smith a few months ago, but according to reports has started a fast-moving romance with her long-time friend after he stuck around to help her through the break-up.
WHAT A NICE MAN.
A source revealed all to The Sun on Sunday, explaining: “Amy and Tom have known each other since they were young, as their parents are friends. They never appeared on Towie together but they’ve always been close.
“Amy hasn’t always had the easiest love life and luckily Tom was there to pick up the pieces after her split from Adam.
“The relationship is still in the very early stages but it’s likely things will get serious quite quickly.”
Sounds promising to us!
The source added: “Although they haven’t been photographed together yet they aren’t exactly trying to hide the relationship. Recently Amy took Tom out to lunch with her parents.
“Amy’s mum Julie is a big fan of Tom’s and has already given her seal of approval. They think he’s a lovely guy who will treat Amy well.”
Err, this is DEFINITELY a go-er then!
