Megan McKenna has given her new romance with TOWIE star Pete Wicks a nickname and he is NOT impressed...

Move over Kimye, Brangelina and Jegan... Meet: Pegan.

Yup, taking to Snapchat last night, Megan revealed the funny moniker to fans. She said: "Hey everyone... it's Pegan." Although, it's fair to say her nickname raised a few eyebrows with her new beau.

Pete was quick to chip in: "It's not Pegan. No to Pegan. No more Pegan. We don't do Pegan."

But why?! We kinda like it! Instead, Megan offered up an alternative and, we guess, a much more manlier name for the pair that Pete would approve of. She said: "It's Mete."

Mete? We're sticking to Pegan - even if it was all a joke. Megan recently told fans she didn't want to be known as Pegan after all. Adding another Snapchat this morning, she said: "I've just woken up to a few tweets - quite a lot of tweets - about this Pegan thing. I was only joking. I don't want to be called Pegan."

Although, we think it might have stuck already...

Megan's latest Snapchat came as she spent the evening in with Pete. News of their romance first surfaced last week, with Megan later confirming she and Pete are now dating.

Fans got a first look at their blossoming relationship when Megan joined Pete on TOWIE for its 200th episode. While most people loved Essex's new pairing, some weren't so convinced. They claimed it was all for the cameras, as Pete had been linked to TV presenter Riah Read in the weeks before.

However, Megan hit back at the couple's critics, insisting her romance with Pete is the real deal. She said: "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."

Megs also revealed that she thinks Pete is a "really good kisser!"

Following her cameo appearance in Sunday night's episode of the ITVBe show, Megan will be back on our screens with Pete.

A rep for TOWIE exclusively confirmed to Reveal that Megan will return to the show and she has since been pictured filming with Pete and his two dogs Eric and Ernest.

Pete had claimed that Megan meeting his dogs was like the Ex On The Beach star being introduced to his children (if he had any).

He said: "If she meets the dogs, if she doesn't get on with the dogs then girl bye, she's gone! It's more important than introducing them to the kids, if I'm honest, because the dogs have a serious opinion and what they say goes."

Luckily for Megs, though, it seemed she was a hit and she shared Snapchats of her babysitting Eric and Ernest not too long ago.
