PETE Wicks enjoyed a cuddle with Chloe Sims as they got close during a festive day spent feeding reindeer.
Salon owner Chloe made sure to dress the part for the show's festive special in a striking oversized red coat which reached down to her knees.
She finished off with a snug black jumper and matching boots - yet appeared to get an extra bit of warmth courtesy of a hug from her hunky pal.
Pete, who looked sharp in a blue flat cap and grey blazer, sneaked his arm around his pal's waist and pulled her close as they stood watching the animals.
Chloe was later seen in fits of giggles as they shared a joke - contradicting her exclusive comments their close bond had been severed for good.
The pair's friendship was strained earlier this year when Chloe refused to be mates with Pirate Pete after he decided to give his love with Megan another go.
Country singer Meg, who has since left the show, endured a rollercoaster relationship with the reality TV star and she was left fuming last series after Pete was pictured looking cosy with Chloe at an award’s bash just days after their split.
After they reunited, the couple were forced to deny her suggestions got back together for publicity.
Yet it is now all smiles between the pals and they cemented a new chapter in their friendship with the cute zoo outing.
Chloe clutched a coffee as she strolled up to the friendly-looking reindeer.
She stood back as Pete grabbed some feed and held his hand under the animal's nose, while being watched by an assistant.
The pair were joined by James Lock and stunning girlfriend Yasmin Oukhellou, who braved the chill in a cute black mini skirt.
