Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks confirm split
Pete Wicks revealed he'd like to star in Celebs Go Dating, just minutes after confirming his split from TOWIE co-star Megan McKenna.
Megan McKenna has confirmed her split from TOWIE boyfriend Pete Wicks in a series of angry tweets aimed at her ex.
Both The Only Way Is Essex stars attended the TRIC Awards in London on Tuesday (14Mar17), but separately. And it was as he spoke to the press outside the ceremony that Pete revealed his new single status.
"Megan is a good girl but it's always complicated with her. It's all about to play out on the show," he told The Sun. "We are both happy at the minute - things are just complicated.
"I'd definitely like to do Celebs Go Dating but there are other TV shows I'm lined up for too."
Megan was less than impressed with Pete's decision to reveal their breakup so publicly, and took to her Twitter page to respond to his remarks and have her say on the end of their relationship.
"Enough of the s**t... yes me and pete have split. I was keeping quite (sic) out of respect for him," she began. "But as he's been 'blabbing' and bragging about other Tv shows I will now confirm we are OVER.
"And have been over for a while. End of the speculations. Now let me move on with my life. Thanks."
Megan and Pete's relationship has been well documented on the ITVBe reality show. While their romance began happily, things hit a roadblock when Pete's sexting to other women was revealed by a newspaper.
Hot-headed Megan was photographed screaming at Pete as she discovered the news while on holiday with her beau, and that led to a short split.
However, the couple got back together in the series finale of The Only Way Is Essex last November (16). But it seems Megan was unable to move past Pete's betrayal, and consequently ended the romance once and for all.
