TOWIE stars Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks shocked their fans when they announced that they had split yet again, just months after reuniting.
However, Megan’s friends have now jumped to her defence and denied that she was unfaithful to Pete, telling The Sun Online that while Pete was caught sexting other women while the pair were together, Megan has always been faithful to him.
A source said: “Megan has not been ‘meeting up with Harry for months’.
“The first time they met up was last week when Megan was single. They had no contact at all while Megan was in a relationship with Pete.”
They continued: “Megan NEVER cheated on Pete or sexted anybody whilst they were in a relationship – unlike Pete…”
It comes as Pete was seen getting emotional as he opened up about the split on TOWIE – telling pals about rumours the brunette beauty had moved on.

It was reported James Lock’s best friend – who was spotted looking cosy with a mystery woman – felt like a ‘mug’ for sticking by his on-off girlfriend.
“Megan has been meeting her ex in secret for months and now he feels like a mug for standing by her,” a source reportedly told the MailOnline.
“Pals warned Pete months ago that Megan was still seeing her ex, but he refused to believe them because he loved her.
“Everyone told him to leave Megan but he was adamant they could make it work.
“It came out on the show that she had been at after parties with her ex and pals, including some of the TOWIE cast, knew then that it was more than that, but Pete chose to trust her and believe she was being honest with him.”
“At first it was like Harry was a rebound for Pete but it’s obvious to everyone that it was the other way round,” they added.
