Just another day in Essex...

It was another emotional episode of The Only Way Is Essex on Sunday night as we watched newly single Megan McKenna break down as she’s forced to deny rumours she’s getting cosy with her ex.

The reality star only split up with her year-long boyfriend, Pete Wicks a few days ago and things are already turning sour between the two of them after she was accused of cheating.

But opening up to Pete’s pal Chloe Sims, Megan revealed that although she’d been partying with a mystery man, she’d done nothing wrong in the situation because well, she IS single.

During the chat Megs branded Pete a ‘fucking prick’ as she discussed Pete’s previous sexting scandal which saw the 27-year-old texting naughty messages to a lot of women (including his own ex) when the pair were an item last summer.

Megan then told Chloe: ‘The way I deal with things when I’m going through hard times is I go out and I get smashed, I’ve always been the same.

‘I went on a night out, basically, my ex was there. Apparently we were all over each other, like, alright we had a few drinks at the bar whatever.

‘I got in a cab, not just with him, with a group of boys and we went to an after party.’

Before reminding everyone: ‘I’ve done nothing wrong, I’m completely single – I can do what I want.’
