The TOWIE star is thinking about chopping his long locks...
We might soon be seeing a whole different Pete Wicks on TOWIE.
The 28-year-old reality star is known for his shoulder-skimming locks, but he’s hinted that he’s thinking of chopping it all off. Say whaaa?!
Pete tells Reveal: ‘I used to have a skinhead, and with the tats, it was a Wentworth Miller from Prison Break vibe. Then everyone told me I was going bald, so I started growing my hair to prove a point, but I just got carried away with it!
‘I’m 30 in 18 months, and maybe then I should shave it off. I’m starting to go grey and I don’t want to look like the Gandalf of Essex.’
LOLz. Well, it would certainly give him a USP…
But shockingly, we might not even have Pete on our screens when he turns 30. It’s been reported that he’s thinking of quitting the programme, after a tumultuous series with ex-girlfriend Megan McKenna.
A source tells The Sun: ‘Pete is looking forward to this series coming to an end – it’s been a stressful few weeks and the situation with Megan is beginning to take its toll.
‘He loves being a part of the show but hasn’t enjoyed watching his break-up play out in front of the nation – not to mention the constant arguments that followed and subsequent fall-outs with pals.
‘Sometimes he’s wondered whether it’s all worth it and is currently at odds whether or not to return. But with a long break coming up, he hopes he’ll be able to take stock, repair those damaged relationships and return a happier, more positive man.’
We guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
