Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks split in emotional TOWIE episode
Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks may have been over "for a while", but their split only aired on Wednesday night's TOWIE.
Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks' relationship came to an emotional end on Wednesday night's (29Mar17) episode of The Only Way Is Essex.
Megan confirmed earlier this month (Mar17) that she and Pete had called time on their romance and had been "over for a while", but their break-up only aired on the ITVBe programme on Wednesday night.
The scenes began with 24-year-old Megan addressing the tension in their relationship, which began after it was revealed Pete had sent explicit text messages to an ex and several other women.
"I feel like it's different this time. You're never happy around me and I don’t know why and it’s horrible... but what am I meant to do?" Megan said.
The brunette beauty added to Pete that September's sexting scandal has been impossible for her to get over, explaining: "Do you not see that I've been trying to make things work for the last four months and I just get this vibe that you’ve got an underlying issue with me... I don’t know what's going to make you happy but I feel like it’s not me."
Pete then asked Megan why she had ever questioned that he loved her, to which she replied: "Maybe (the texts) made you realise you love me, but you obviously didn't back then as you wouldn't have done it. And it's not fair on you that I can't forgive you."
Pete responded by telling Megan he wasn't willing to "feel guilty" about the sexting scandal all the time, to which he was met with a stony silence.
He then asked Megan, "So that's it then? Are we just going to call it a day?" to which she once again refused to reply.
Pete attempted to elicit a response from Megan by asking her if she loved him.
"I feel like I do, but it feels different," she responded.
That was all Pete needed to hear, and he struggled to control his emotions as he stood up, kissed Megan on the cheek and walked out - leaving his former girlfriend in floods of tears.
