The couple looked content as they sat down for their al fresco date at a vineyard and Ella said they’re “still flirty” with each other and “had a cheeky little kiss again.”
Despite their romantic connection, Ella, 21, said the 11-year age gap between them makes Pete “worried about what others will think.”
The blonde beauty explained: “He is 11 years older than me. It is quite a bit.
“It’s hard because in my head I am not 21, I feel like I am more mature than my age and I get that from people too.
“Even Pete doesn’t feel like he’s talking to a 21-year-old when he talks to me.”

The star questioned whether things would be “awkward” if things were to progress between the pair.
She added: “If it doesn’t work out, would we want to be friends again?”
Ella referenced Pete’s on-off romance with Chloe Sims, and said: “Look at Pete and Chloe. They are not really friends or as close as what they were so there is that risk. Is it worth it?”
Ella adds that she’s “not saying it isn’t worth” but “isn’t sure Pete is looking for a relationship.”
Towie star Pete arranged the outdoor date recently at a stunning local vineyard in Essex and they looked closer than ever as they walked beside each other.
The co-stars have been spotted passionately kissing in the past and previously has an on/off romance.
The cast members both attended ITV’s Summer Party at The Mandrake Hotel before both leaving separately and arriving at London’s Strip Bar individually.
The pair were then seen later flirting and kissing outside the venue, hinting at a new Towie romance.

Ella also revealed in an exclusive chat with The Sun that she enjoys “cheeky snogs” with Pete.
But she was recently dating co-star Jordan Brooks so explained that the kisses with Pete had to stop.
She said: “It has had to stop with the new route I’m going down at the moment. There might be a special man on the scene.”
But in recent scenes on hit show Towie, Ella and Jordan were seen calling things quits after the blonde star failed to respond to Jordan’s messages after a romantic date.
Pete and Ella never made their brief romance official at the time.
TOWIE airs Sundays at 9pm on ITVBe and ITV Hub.
