CHLOE Sims has ended her friendship with former flame Pete Wicks for good.
The 40-year-old Towie star’s love/hate relationship with the Essex lothario goes back years, and until recently it appeared they had buried past grievances.

However, Chloe has erased all trace of her ex from her Instagram account and in an interview with new! Magazine admitted to muting him online.
She said: “I’ve had Pete muted for a long time and I just didn’t want to have him on there any more.”
In November Chloe shed tears of joy as Pete revealed he’d had her name tattooed on his hand in a sweet moment in the Towie series finale.
To make her birthday meal even more touching, he told her “I love you”.
In the scene he told Chloe that he wanted to do “something that would signify” how she was “irreplaceable” in his life.
“That’s a big word, Pete,” she replied, to which he reassured her: “You are irreplaceable to me, so I might have got like a tattoo on my hand.”
Holding up his left wrist, Pete revealed her name freshly inked on his hand.
Covering her face with her hands, shocked mum-of-one Chloe said: “How have I not noticed that? Oh my god! That is so nice!”
Pete told her: “The point of that is, you do mean everything to me and for anyone else who feels like I don’t or for anyone you feel like I’ve not justified this to, I do love you to bits.”
The reality TV stars were in a secret on-off relationship for two years that ended bitterly after details of the under wraps romance leaked out.
The former best pals didn’t speak for months after their fallout, but reunited last summer.
Despite rumours that they could be more than friends, it seems Chloe has chosen to distance herself from him instead.
The single star is in no rush to find love and doesn’t want to disrupt daughter Madison’s life.
She said: “I haven’t had that many serious relationships. When Mady was little you could get away with it as you could just say people were a friend.
“I tend to keep her out of my private life. If I was in a serious relationship, I don’t think I would rush that, as she is used to having me all to herself.”
