It turns out Meg's ex has got his own showbiz past...

It’s fair to say that TOWIE stars Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks have had a tough time recently.

After their turbulent 12 month relationship came to a dramatic end last week, both reality stars have been hit by cheating rumours – because y’know people like to talk in Essex.

On Wednesday evening’s show, Ex On The Beach star, Megs was quick to deny she’d ever been unfaithful to her former boyfriend but did admit she’d had a drunken night out with her ex after the pair broke-up.

But she was completely single at the time so it’s no biggie, right?

Well, that didn’t stop us all guessing the identity behind the 23-year-old’s mystery ex and now he may have just been revealed as child actor, Harry Eden.

According to The Sun, bar owner Harry reportedly started dating Megan back in 2012 but the couple split just two years later when Megs went on to appear on MTV’s Ex On The Beach.

And it turns out the Essex lad has a bit of a showbiz past himself as he actually appeared in a remake of Oliver Twist as the Artful Dodger, and a 2003 adaptation of Peter Pan as one of the Lost Boys.

Well, we’re impressed.

Although it’s not confirmed whether Harry definitely IS the man behind the rumours, Megan previously explained where the gossip had come from as she told pal, Chloe Sims: ‘I went out on a night out and my ex was there, we had a few drinks and apparently we were all over each other.

‘And yeah, I got a bit drunk. We got in a taxi together with his other mates and went to the after party.

Before adding: ‘But I’ve done nothing wrong, I’m completely single and I don’t want these rumours being blown out of proportion.’

Unfortunately despite Megan’s explanation, the feud between her and Pete has since hit all new levels as pictures emerged of the pair getting into a massive row on the streets of Essex on Tuesday (4th April).

A source told The Sun that during the explosive argument Megan accused Pete, 27, of sleeping with another girl while he was away in Scotland, something which he completely denied.

Eeek. We’re sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear of the Pegan drama, especially with the street row due to air on TOWIE soon.
