TOWIE’s blue eyed boy Peter Wicks has certainly given the Essex boys and girls a run for their money since he joined the BAFTA Award winning ITVBe show in the summer of 2015.He has quickly become one of the shows & fans favourite characters and a regular in the show’s drama. Outside of TOWIE Pete’s main love and passion are his pet French bulldogs, Eric & Peggy.
This passion saw Pete fly out to South Korea with Humane Society International in November 2017, where he rescued 170 dogs from a local meat farm, an experience that has stayed very close to his heart. In early 2018 Pete released his first ever book ‘For the Love of Frenchie’s; The Dog that Changed my Life’ which sees him discuss and tell his love & story with this particular breed.
He continues to work & support with multiple charities, including the Dogs Trust. In 2016 Pete’s debut official calendar was a huge success outselling One Direction and Justin Bieber. He was also announced as the Ann Summers Christmas ambassador alongside James Lock and has worked with brands such as Wilkinson Sword and Couture Club. 2018 saw Pete launch his very own menswear label, Hermano, with selected items being sold in branches of JD across the UK.
Towards the end of the year Pete was well known for his role in Bear Grylls: The Island and he currently has a social following of over 1M on Instagram.
