During last night's episode of The Only Way Is Essex viewers saw Tom Pearce ask Lauren Pope what the deal was between the two of them.
The eager 22-year-old then followed that question with an abrupt request to make their relationship official which the resident DJ kindly turned down.
But despite Lauren refusing to label their romance the two were pictured as they shared a secret kiss yesterday during the last day of filming.
What do we have here… TOWIE's Lauren Pope and Tom Pearce shared a secret kiss in a field in Essex
The two appeared to be having a deep conversation as they stood in the secluded part of the field away from their cast members.
Pearce who has made it no secret he is infatuated with the 28-year-old was seen stroking her face as she stood opposite him before he pulled her in for a kiss.
The economic graduates who recently celebrated his birthday proved he was a bit of a cheeky chap when he placed his hand on Pope's derriere.

Following her breakup from her last boyfriend, Kirk Norcross who used to be a part of the show, it seems wise for Pope to take things slow.
On Tuesday, she took to her Twitter to wish Tom a happy birthday, pleased that she did so he replied by asking for a gift.
He tweeted, '@LaurenPope @misskatieprice cheers pops lookin forward to my present later #c*ckthrowin'.
