Celebs Go Dating is back on Channel 4 with its sixth series!

Kerry Katona, Chelsee Healey, David Potts and more celebs are all looking to find ‘the one’ with the help of the celebrity dating agency.

Two celebs unlikely to be seen in the same place at the same time without all hell breaking loose is The Only Way is Essex exes, Pete Wicks and Megan McKenna.

When Pete and Megan were together they had one of the most tumultuous relationships seen on reality TV, so how come they’re on Celebs Go Dating at the same time?

Pete and Megan First Meet

In March 2016 Megan McKenna joined The Only Way is Essex.

Previous to her joining the cast she and TOWIE castmate Pete Wicks were rumoured to have been seeing each other.

Megan shared a post on social media of herself with Pete’s two French Bulldogs sparking rumours that the pair were now an official couple.

Pete and Megan on TOWIE

While Pete joined TOWIE in series 15, his then-girlfriend hopped on screen in series 17.

The couple started off their TV romance head over heels for each other.

However, with both of them having a tendency to lose their temper, things headed south quite quickly.

Pete and Megan had blazing rows on TOWIE.

According to The Sun, in 2017 the TV crew actually had to intervene and restrain the couple as an argument turned violent on a quiet Essex street.

Pete is still a member of the TOWIE cast and has more recently had another on-screen romance with Shelby Tribble in series 23.

Pete and Megan Break Up…And Get Back Together

Like many reality TV couples, Pete and Megan have broken up and gotten back together more times than you can imagine.

Pegan broke up in 2016 after that infamous TOWIE beach scene where Pete was accused of sending inappropriate texts to an ex-girlfriend.

They then got back together in November 2016.

Pegan Split For Good

After more rowing, the pair split again in 2017 just as Megan’s country music career was taking off.

According to The Sun, a TV source said: “Megan and Pete have given their relationship everything – but it still hasn’t been enough.”

Megan stayed on The Only Way is Essex until the pair split in series 21, 2017.

In October 2017, The Daily Mail reported: “The lovebirds called it quits on their romance because of the ‘stress and pressure of constant rows’ in recent weeks.”

Megan’s Ex

During their 18 month relationship, Megan was also accused of speaking her ex.

Bearing in mind that her ex was Ibiza Weekender’s number one playboy, Jordan Davies, we could see why that might be an issue.

Megan and Jordan met in 2015 and actually got engaged!

Are Megan and Pete Now Friends?

As of 2019 both Megz and Pete are looking pretty single.

Pete looks to have cemented a firm friendship with Geordie Shore lass Vicky Pattison.

While Megan has been focusing on her music career in recent months.

Now, they are both appearing on series 6 of Celebs Go Dating – let’s just hope there are sparks flying between the celebs, not drinks being thrown!
