Megan McKenna has opened up about her blossoming relationship with TOWIE star Pete Wick and insisted it is NOT a showmance.

Reports revealing Megan and Pete are now dating first surfaced last week and TOWIE fans then got to see the couple onscreen together, as Megan made her show debut for its 200th episode.

In the weeks before, Pete had been linked to TV presenter Riah Read, leading many to question if his romance with Megan was all for the cameras. However, the Ex On The Beach beauty has now hit back and claimed things between herself and Essex boy Pete are "100% genuine."

Chatting with The Daily Star, Megan gushed: "I'm happy. Pete is such a gorgeous gentleman. I really like Pete... People can think it is a showmance if they want, but this is 100% genuine."

Megan also explained how the pair met, revealing she and Pete had started speaking before she went into the Big Brother house. Things didn't develop between the pair until recently, though, and after going for a drink, Megan said the pair really hit it off.

"We really got on and ended up going clubbing and having a kiss," Megan added. "He's a great kisser."

That we already know, as Megan spoke about Pete's kissing skills with her best pals Courtney Green and Chloe Meadows in TOWIE's last episode. She told them: "What's nice is that I haven't felt this way... excited... and he's a really good kisser. Really good, like sexual."

She had joined Pete as his plus one for the dinner party, although he did joke his BFF James Lock will always come before her.

Megan's romance with Pete comes three months after she split with her ex and Ibiza Weekender star Jordan Davies.

They had dated for over six months, after getting together on the third series of Ex On The Beach, and went on to get engaged when they returned to the MTV show for its fourth.

However, Megan confirmed she and Jordan had split up back in December. At the time, she reassured fans the pair were still on good terms, but they have since fallen out.

While Jordan claims Megan ended their realtionship to further her career on Celebrity Big Brother, Megan claims their split was due to Jordan 'breaking her trust.'

Now, she is moving on with Pete, and TOWIE fans will get to see more of their relationship, as Megan has been spotted back at filming. A rep for the show confirmed to Reveal that Megan will appear in more episodes.

Jordan, meanwhile, has been linked to Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson.
