TOWIE’s Pete Wicks leers at ‘lovely’ Rachel Riley bikini pic on Celebrity Circle

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Pete Wicks couldn’t contain his excitement as he leered at a sexy Rachel Riley bikini picture.

The TOWIE star is appearing on The Celebrity Circle alongside best buddy – and Made in Chelsea reality star – Sam Thompson.

But lothario Pete got a little too excited as he salivated over the “lovely” Rachel as the duo aim to catfish other celebrities by pretending to be the Countdown beauty.

Pete and Sam had to set up their computer profile on the Channel 4 game show, which kicked off tonight.

But when it came to deciding which alluring image to use Pete’s original idea of a scuba diving snap was quickly shot down by Sam.

And the boys opted for a sexy image of Rachel on the beach in a bikini instead.

“The bikini one, if we can just have a look at that,“ enquired Pete.

“I knew you were going to go there,” replied Sam.

“Yeah, I mean we’re not gonna use that, but lovely,” Pete said, gazing at the photo.

The series, arguably pandemic-ready, features a string of celebrities as they try and fool each other with their identities

TV presenter Denise Van Outen, who withdrew injured from Dancing from Ice, joins the boys on the fun show.

And Loose Women duo Kay Adams and Nadia Sawalha have signed up to the mind-boggling project which revolves around competitors pretending to be somebody else.
