The brunette beauty will make her debut on the ITVBe series when the show returns this weekend.
And ahead of her first episode, the latest addition to the TOWIE cast – Shelby Tribble – has sent a warning to one of the show’s former stars.
Megan McKenna quit The Only Way Is Essex last year following her bitter split from ex boyfriend from Pete Wicks.
Pete is now dating Shelby, who’s warned Megan not to try and get back together her former beau.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Shelby said that so far she’s not had any arguments with Pete’s friends or co-stars – but that could all change if Megan wanted to give things another go with Pete.
She revealed: “I’m not going to take any s*** off anyone. At the moment I’m getting on with people…but if it comes to it I can definitely hold my own.

“I wouldn’t let someone walk all over me. If someone tries to do that they won’t get anywhere. I can stand up for myself.”
She added: “I’m completely different to Megan and people will see that on the show. We haven’t met and I don’t know her, so I don’t really owe her anything.
“There wouldn’t be an argument…well, there wouldn’t be one from my side unless she tried to get back with Pete.”
Megan recently confirmed her own new relationship with Love Island star ‘Muggy’ Mike Thalassitis, and Shelby admits she doesn’t think a Megan and Pete reunion is on the cards.
“I don’t think that would happen because she’s very happy in her new relationship,” she said of her boyfriend’s ex.
Shelby’s comments come after she revealed her football star ex-boyfriend Danny Simpson isn’t happy with her Pete romance.
“He probably isn’t happy to see me happy with Pete now,” she said of Leicester player, adding: “It’s been a very big upgrade. He’s an ex for a reason.”
