TOWIE: Pete Wicks’ ex claims he has been flirting behind Megan McKenna’s back
The Only Way is Essex star, Pete Wicks, has been labelled a “complete dog” after messaging his ex, Jacqui Ryland, whilst on holiday with his girlfriend Megan McKenna.
Famously known in Essex as ‘Pirate Pete’, the reality television personality secretly dated model Jacqui Ryland early on this year, before breaking things off. Six months ago he then publicly entered into a relationship with his feisty co-star Megan McKenna. Jacqui later revealed that the supposed Mr. Nice Guy of TOWIE did not stop texting her whilst he was in Barcelona with his other half. She told The Sun Online: “Why is he doing all these big public affections with her when actually he is just a complete dog? I always thought he was a really nice guy who was respectful to women. I was attracted to his banter.”
She explained that she innocently started a conversation with Pete having heard the sad news about his pet dog: “So when his dog died I just messaged him to say sorry. The conversation just started back up and before you knew it the old Pete was back being flirty.”
Jacqui continued to comment on how Pete had bad-mouthed his current girlfriend to her via text: “To say you never know what’s around the corner and to say stuff like she doesn’t drink – it’s almost slagging her off. He was making slide little remarks that actually if I was her I’d be really hurt by that.”
Among the numerous messages exchanged between Pete and Jacqui were suggestions that Pete might rekindle his romance with his ex if he was single. One message from Jacqui read: “Not my fault you got into a relationship.” To which he replied: “O shut up! It’s not my fault either! Imagine if I hadn’t…reckon we would still have been talking now?”
He added: “It’s a shame, it ain’t just you that misses [being single] it to be fair!”
When his old flame asked why he entered into a relationship with the Ex On The Beach star, Pete replied: “You never know what’s gonna happen!!”
Jacqui is having none of it, however, and named Pete a “loverat”. She also admitted that she feels sorry for Essex-girl Megan McKenna, saying: “I just feel really sorry for Megan. Clearly she is a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and I think he could potentially really hurt her.”
She is not wrong. Megan certainly does wear her heart on her sleeve, and if the allegations are true we are sure to expect some explosive rows on the new series of The Only Way is Essex, which is currently being filmed in Marbella and shall be returning to ITVBe soon. You’re in for it now Pete.
The Only Way Is Essex will continue with a new series soon to ITVBe.
