Megan and Pete’s awkward display comes after she claimed they are now friends following their volatile break-up in 2017.

Speaking to CelebsNow earlier this month, she said: ‘I’m glad Pete’s on the show and we’re friends now… it wouldn’t have happened otherwise.’

The TOWIE star also revealed exactly what she’s looking for in a man – and it no longer sounds like Pete!

‘I’m looking for a businessman – someone that when I get in at night they’re going to run me a bath and cook me dinner,’ she told us.

‘Because I’m busy so I want to come home to a nice loving house and a man that’s going to look after me. That’s all I want.’
