Did Pete try to get back into contact with Jacqui Ryland following his split from TOWIE's Megan McKenna?!

Ya’know what they say… the course of true love never did run smooth.

And heck, when you’re as fabulously feisty as our ‘gal Megan McKenna, it’s often a bit tricky to keep a lid on it. Hey, at least things are never boring around Megs! Just don’t let her go hungry… otherwise things get altogether too real…

And so, as the many members of the TOWIE gang will know, Megs and her Essex beau Pete Wicks have decided to call it quits on their relationship- following a pretty tumultuous run.

Following the shocking revelation of Pete becoming involved with a sexting scandal back in September of last year, the couple had appeared to be working towards getting to a better place.

I love him.

However, last week Megan took to social media to reveal they had called it curtains once more- allegedly, it is understood that Pete’s claims of wanting to join Celebs Go Dating was the final nail in the coffin for Megs. Yup, we can only imagine how that one went down…

Megan writes, ‘I was keeping quite out of respect for him. But as he’s been ‘blabbing’ and bragging about other Tv shows I will now confirm we are OVER’.

Pete also took to social media to confirm the split, denying his active search for a dating show gig in a message which reads ‘Just to confirm…im not doing dating shows. Press can make out what they want’.

With many fans sharing their opinion on the split, it would seem that no-one has quite an opinion as strong as Jacqui Ryland– a.k.a Pete’s Ex who found herself in the centre of THAT explosive sexting scandal.

Fitness model Jacqui, who dated Pete last year, told The Sun Online ‘I don’t know if Pete loves Megan, I don’t think he knows what love is to be honest’.

Jacqui continues, ‘He’s just a dog and he loves the chase, he’ll never change and have a loving long-term relationship, but I think she’ll move on and be happy’.

Speaking of the sexting scandal, Jacqui shares ‘Some men cheat because they love the attention, but I think it’s a power thing as well with him… Megan is a business woman who’s hugely successful and he’s just in the background. So for him cheating is like his power – that he can still have whoever he wants’.

She then added, ‘[Megan] needs to stay away from him, she’s a good looking girl with so much going for her… but all the heartbreak he puts her through will just hold her back and make her lose focus’.

Yikes. Jacqui also added that she had become suspicious Pete had attempted to get back into touch with her following his split from Megan, after he followed her on Twitter before blocking her once more: ‘It could have been Megan…but I’m pretty sure it was him wanting to get back in touch and then deciding against it’.

Yup… some very strong thoughts right there. We’d love to know your opinion, tweet us @CelebsNow!
