TOWIE star Pete Wicks puts on a cosy display with Dele Alli’s model ex Ruby Mae as the pair queue for a strip club during night out
Pete Wicks was seen chatting with Dele Alli’s model ex Ruby Mae as they queued to visit a strip club in London on Monday.
The TOWIE star, 32, looked in great spirits as he stood outside the Platinum Lace strip club in the West End while chatting to a leggy Ruby, 25, who split from Spurs ace Dele, 25, in February following a five-year romance.
Pete looked as cool as ever in a black jacket and jeans, paired with loafers for his night on the tiles – as he placed a hand on Ruby’s waist.

He wore his long locks loose and pulled back from his face with shades.
The star looked delighted to be out on the town as he spoke with his pals ahead of his evening at the strip club – where he attended a clothing launch event for his friend Sophie O’Neill.
Ruby looked incredible in a black mini dress, adorned with gothic lace and glittering lettering.
She completed the ensemble with white wraparound stiletto sandals.

Ruby and Dele split earlier this year after the pair kept getting into blazing rows, insiders claimed.
Ruby was reportedly left ‘incensed’ over the Tottenham and England star’s behaviour.
Mae – who has modeled for top-brands Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana – was understood to have ‘packed up her things’ and moved out of their £2million mansion.
The pair split up just before Valentines Day. They no longer follow each other on social media.
Mae and Alli have been together since early 2016. She was by his side at the Euros that summer and the 2018 World Cup in Russia before they split for a short time early in 2019.

They were back together by the summer that year with Alli reportedly flying Mae out to Madrid for the Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool at the start of June.
Alli and Mae’s split comes less than a year after the pair were robbed at knife-point by thieves who forced their way in to their Barnet, north London, home in the early hours of the morning.
Mae was reportedly playing pool with Dele when he was punched in the face by the knife-wielding thugs in what she called a ‘horror of an experience’.
Insiders told The Sun that their ‘turbulent’ relationship came to an end after Mae was left ‘incensed’ her boyfriend’s behaviour.

The source said: ‘Their relationship has been turbulent, but it now feels very much like the end.’
The sighting also comes after Pete was been saved from a huge cast cull as producers of TOWIE axed 10 cast members.
TOWIE bosses see longstanding cast member Pete as a ‘fan favourite’ and were keen to keep him on the show following the decision to shake it up.

It comes after MailOnline also revealed Courtney Green, 26, Chloe Meadows, 28, and Clelia Theodorou, 26, were among the stars who no longer have a place on the show.
Sources said: ‘Pete was told last night that he’d been saved from the chop by show bosses – he’s been on Towie for years and is a huge fan favourite so they didn’t want to lose him.
Producers are no doubt keen to keep hold of Pete following a string of explosive storylines, most recently including a secret two-year sexual relationship with his co-star Chloe Sims, 38.
Elsewhere, Courtney and Chloe are among the biggest casualties in the show’s mass cull.
