The star, who will make her debut on The Only Way Is Essex this weekend, used to date Leicester City football star Danny Simpson.
Pete Wick’s new girlfriend Shelby Tribble was spotted with Tulisa’s ex on a date at The Ritz in London last year.
Since ending their romance Shelby has found love with TOWIE regular Pete but it looks like her new relationship has sparked a reaction in Danny.
Speaking ahead of the launch of series 22 of TOWIE, Shelby has revealed that Danny “probably isn’t happy” with her and Pete – who she calls a “very big upgrade.”
She told The Sun: “It’s a bit awkward because he tried to win me back recently – and failed. He probably isn’t happy to see me happy with Pete now. It’s been a very big upgrade. He’s an ex for a reason.”
Shelby is joining the ITVBe reality hit alongside fellow newbies like Jordan Wright and Dean Ralph but it looks like Danny won’t be tuning in to see her big debut on screen.

“Danny hasn’t wished me luck with going on the show, God no,” the star added.
Revealing more about her new relationship with Pete, Shelby made a saucy confession about her new beau’s bedroom antics saying: “All I have to say is that it’s all good – I have absolutely no complaints. Everything is all good in that department.”
Shelby also spoke about meeting Pete’s best friend Chloe Sims – who he recently rebuilt his friendship with after their massive fallout over his ex Megan McKenna.
Discussing how things stand with her and the log-time TOWIE star Shelby explained: “I have spoken to Chloe and she is such a big character and very protective over Pete.
“I think she will take a little longer to open up to me due to previous situations.
“She’s probably a bit weary of me and how I’m going to treat Pete – but that’s not an issue as I’m completely different and we’re in a really good place.”
