Reports are claiming a cross-reality TV show romance is blossoming, with The Only Way Is Essex star Pete Wicks and Ex On The Beach’s Megan McKenna apparently getting their date on.
The couple reportedly met through mutual friends after Meg left this year’s Celebrity Big Brother house.

ITVBe bosses are said to be pretty thrilled about the romance, and are even thinking of trying to get Megan on the show as a permanent cast member.
A pal told The Sun: “Pete never falls in love, but is totally bowled over by Megan. He is completely smitten and treats her like a princess.
“He’s had the hots for her ever since he saw her in CBB - and not even her mammoth tantrums put him off.
“As soon as she was out he had mutual pals introduce them, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Last night they even hung out to watch TOWIE with some of Megan’s mates.”
Pete previously told that he was seeing someone outside of TOWIE and that it was ‘early days’, adding: “I do semi-believe in this TOWIE curse when it comes to relationships early on when you first start seeing each other.
“We’re not together, we are just seeing each other but I think early on that’s a lot of pressure to out on something when you are just trying to get to know someone.”

Megan, meanwhile, is set to cameo on TOWIE’s 200th anniversary episode this Sunday, with an insider telling MailOnline: “She’s good friends with new girls Chloe [Meadows] and Courtney [Green] so it’s inevitable she would have been involved with the show at some point.
“Producers are hoping the wild side to Megan we saw on Celebrity Big Brother will come out in a big way and make for some excellent viewing.”
