She’s well known for her explosive outbursts on Ex On The Beach, as well as her anger over the lack of food (and John Partridge) in Celebrity Big Brother.

But it seems there’s actually a sad reason behind Megan McKenna’s temper tantrums - a ‘nasty relationship’.

Explaining where her anger comes from, the reality TV star, who made her debut on The Only Way Is Essex on Sunday (March 13), told Now magazine: “It all stems from a nasty, nasty, relationship. I was never like this before that relationship.

“I can’t explain to you the pain and s**t I had to deal with every single day with him. We were together for two and a half years and he really did ruin my life. I even lost my job because of him.”

Adding that he cheated on her ‘many times’, Meg continued: “People would confront me while I was working in a bar telling me what he’d been up to with other girls. I’d go down his phone and find Twitter messages from other girls. He’d just tell me they were all jealous of us… and I believed him.

“He wouldn’t let me go out with him, and if I ended up in the same club as him and his friends he’d cause murders. He made me feel so insecure.”

After discovering that he’d ‘slept with a close friend’, Megan reached her breaking point and headed to MTV’s Ex On The Beach (August 2015), where she was branded a ‘psycho’ due to her explosive behaviour.

Speaking about that series, Meg said: “I went straight from that relationship to the show and wasn’t in the best mood. I was put in this situation where my emotions kept building and building. I hated him and was crying on the show over him, but no one realised.”

Now, having received professional help for anger management, the TV star admits she still struggles with being branded ‘psycho’, and sometimes cries to her agent, saying ‘I can’t do this anymore’.

She explained: “People think I’m an absolute b**ch and call me a psycho – but I’m not. I do cry over things. Any girl that has been in my situation where they’ve been hurt by a boy will understand.

“That’s why I have such a girl following because they’ve been through it and I’m relatable. I’m like an inspiration.”
