The 'Only Way Is Essex' stars have decided to celebrate the festive season together after growing close after the 28-year-old hunk's split from Megan McKenna following a series of blazing rows over his close bond with the busty blonde.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "It confirmed what Megan feared all along. Fans of the show saw Megan getting upset about their cosy relationship and it made her look insecure - but this just shows she was right all along.

"Pete and Chloe have been able to properly talk now that he has split up and they're both in emotional states right now so the timing was perfect.

"They've sought solace from each other and have quickly grown close. So much so that they're now going to spend Christmas together."

Pete dated Megan, 25, on and off for over a year but their relationship came crashing down a few months ago when the brunette star saw photographs of him and Chloe.

The 'It's All About Megan' star has since decided to quit 'The Only Way is Essex', which she claimed made their relationship harder, in order to focus on her singing dreams.

She said recently: "I have left' TOWIE'. At the moment I'm trying to do my tour, I'm in the studio, I'm recording and it's amazing, I feel like I wanted to juggle both but it got to the point where I have too much to do for my music and that's my dream."

Meanwhile, although he's said to be getting cosy with Chloe, Pete has reportedly signed up to the new series of 'Celebs Go Dating' in order to find his perfect woman.

A source said: "A week after his split with Megan went public, Pete was approached about appearing on 'Celebs Go Dating'. He met with the casting agent and is seriously considering it. Being on 'TOWIE' is great, but he'd like to show more of his fun side on TV and 'Celebs Go Dating' would be perfect for that.

"The show would love to sign Pete up - he's handsome, has loads of fans and it would be no problem to find girls to set up with him for dates."
