Pete is a successful businessman with a string of properties and growing businesses in his portfolio.
Since joining the show he has also carved out a career as a model and makes money through personal appearances at clubs and events.
Pete claims to stand at 5 ft 10 tall and attributes appearing short on TV to having super tall friends and co-stars.
He previousl revealed to Reveal: " I'm too short for Ferne McCann. I'm only 5ft 10 on a good day.
"When I film with Lewis Bloor or James Lock I look like a f***ing borrower. It does my nut in."
Though his fans often speculate whether he may have been a bit generous with the inches when it come to his height.

Did Pete cheat on Megan McKenna?
Megan and Pete started dating around April 2016 and things progressed when she joined Towie.
They even talked of “love” until they were rocked by a sex text scandal in September last year.
The couple reunited a few months later and were officially back together by December that year.
However, their rollercoaster romance hit the skids again in March 2017 and they split again, with emotional scenes airing on Towie last October.
Pete Wicks later dated his Towie co-star Shelby Tribble.
However, their relationship didn't last and on September 18 The Sun's Bizarre column exclusively revealed that they split because Shelby felt like a rebound after Megan.
