Celebrity Big Brother winner Scotty T has shared his surprise at news Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks are dating and appeared to suggest their relationship could be down to Megan wanting to be on TV...

News first surfaced of Pete and Megan's romance earlier this month, with the Ex On The Beach beauty confirming she is now dating Pete before her cameo appearance on TOWIE's 200th episode.

Having his say on Megan's new flame, Scotty told The Mirror: "I know she's always wanted to be on the telly, but that was really quick! Next thing I know, she's dating Pete from TOWIE."

Despite striking up a romance, albeit brief, with Megan in the CBB house, Scott insisted he wasn't jealous.

He said: "I haven't seen her in a while, but it's just weird. I hope they're getting on great. I'm not jealous. I'm onto bigger and better things."

The Geordie Shore favourite added: "Megan is a nice girl really... she's a harmless nutcase."

Scott's latest comments on his former housemate come after he claimed he 'didn't shun' Megan when CBB wrapped up. Fans of the show had been hoping for the pair's romance to continue on the outside, especially as Scott had said his feelings for Megan were completely genuine.

However, days after winning CBB, Scott was spotted kissing former Miss Newcastle Francesca Toole - his rumoured girlfriend. Jeremy McConnell had revealed Scott was seeing Francesca before he appeared on the Channel 5 reality show.

Scott recently explained: "I didn't shun her. I like Megan and she's a nice girl." He blamed the breakdown of their fling to distance, adding: "She came out of Big Brother and was all over the place. She's a busy girl. And the fact she lives in Essex and I'm in Newcastle..."

Scott has also insisted he is single despite continuously being linked to Francesca. Setting the record straight on the pair's 'realtionship', he insisted things between himself and Francesca are purely 'casual' as it would be unfair for him to commit while working on Geordie Shore.

Megan, meanwhile, has spoken out about Scott and didn't seem too impressed to hear about Francesca. She said: "Apparently Scotty T had a girlfriend the whole time he was in the CBB house flirting with me. It's not very nice when someone is playing you."

She has since slammed claims her romance with Pete is for the cameras, insisting things between herself and the Essex boy are the real deal. Megan hit back: "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."
