The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna has spoken about her split from Love Island’s ‘Muggy’ Mike Thalassitis for the first time, revealing the real reason behind their breakup.
The brunette beauty, 25, who dated Mike for seven months, confirmed that the pair had ended their romance and that he wasn’t a “nasty person”.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Magazine, reality TV star Megan explained: “I can’t even say why we split. I just feel like we’re both at different point in our lives.
“We both respect each other and we didn’t want it to get nasty or messy. There is only so much you can do in a relationship and when it’s not working you’ve got to take separate routes.”
She continued: “But I wish him all the luck in the world, he’s not a nasty person. Everything happens for a reason. It wasn’t one of those break-ups like ones I’ve had in the past where it was really bitter and nasty, this was more a decision we made together.
“The way I dealt with things in the past with my exes was by screaming and that was not a good way to deal with it.”

Megan also described the split has “hard” saying it was a “shame” that they decided to part ways.
“When I get into a relationship with someone I give it my all because I feel like, what’s the point of going in half-hearted? I’m one of those people who gives my everything to someone, so obviously it’s been hard.
“It’s not exactly been the easiest ride but I feel like I’m a lot stronger than I used to be. It’s just a shame, really.”
