Towie's Pete Wicks has a cheeky feel of girlfriend Shelby Tribble's bum during a beach photoshoot with James Locke and Yazmin Oukhellou

Tattooed hunk Pete, 29, copped a cheeky feel of his girlfriend Shelby's bum for cameras, while Yazmin posed in a swimsuit as they began filming the new series on the island.

Pete could not take his hands off Shelby, who showed off her figure in a bandeau top and thong bottoms, as well as a slinky white swimsuit.

The pair were not afraid to pack on the PDA and passionately kissed in front of cameras, despite posing right beside their co-stars.

Meanwhile Yaz smouldered in a plunging white number of her own, before slipping into a embellished bikini as she strutted along the sand.

Later cosying up to James on the beach, the couple still proved to be loved-up after two years of romance as they kicked off filming for Towie season 23.

The cast kicked off filming in Sardinia on Monday, in place of their annual trip to Marbella.

Earlier this month The Sun revealed how some of the stars were fuming to not be returning to their beloved Marbs.

Many feel Sardinia won't be as rowdy, with the small Italian island synonymous with relaxing getaways, while the Spanish hot spot is known for its lively bars and clubs.

An insider said: “They’re going to Sardinia in Italy this year, not Marbs, so it’s going to be a really different trip this year.

“Every year, the cast beg producers to go to LA or Miami or Dubai, so when they heard it was Italy, some cast were furious because they think there are much more fun places to film.

“Only half the cast are going too – even though it’s not going to be wild clubbing and nights out, they’re all desperate to go!

“Nobody wants to be left at home.”
