TOWIE star Pete Wicks was forced to defend his long locks on Twitter, after he was criticised by some for the length of his hair.

The Essex boy had shared a photo to Instagram of his glossy mane and joked it was similar to that of a girl's. Well to be fair, Pete does give us major hair-envy, you?

Poking fun at himself, Pete had told his follower: "This bird is lovely looking from behind... #Mexico #BirdsBarnet."

While many were quick to compliment Pete on his tresses, with many girls claiming his hair is better than theirs (yup, we get that), others weren't so keen.

One user had commented: "Aint being funny ur meant to be a man not a women u got longer hair then me look." Another had said: "A man with Hair like that?? No thank U!!"

Pete, meanwhile, wasn't too phased by the negative comments and proved his long lengths are here to stay. Hurrah!

He hit back at his critics on Twitter and said: "People commenting on my hair...Sorry I don't have a short back and sides but I like it so why don't you wind your necks in! #Ssshh."

Seeing his post, fans were quick to give Pete and his bonce their support. One follower replied: "They're just hurt cos you've got better hair than them haha lend me some."

Another added: "But you're hair envy. Flick that hair Pete flick it, flick it."

TOWIE: Pete and Megan kiss.

Pete's tweet comes as he is currently holidaying in Mexico with his co-star and best pal James Lock.

They jetted off overseas following the TOWIE finale which saw Pete finally make his relationship with Megan McKenna official. The pair have been dating since last month and fans have watched their undeniable chemistry onscreen.

Proving their relationship is going from strength to strength, Pete told Megan he thinks they are an official item. When she prompted him about their relationship status, he told her: ""You make this very difficult for a geezer, don't you?" said Pete. "You know. Basically, effectively together."

Just to clarify Megan asked him if he was saying she is his girlfriend and Pete replied yes. Cute.

Since then, Megan has too jetted off on holiday and recently told fans she had touched down in Miami. It's clear that she and Pete are missing each other, though, judging by their latest Twitter exchange.

The couple couldn't resist publicly flirting on the social media site when it comes to their tans. Pete had tweeted to say he is sunburnt, and Megan ribbed her beau for not having "olive skin" like her.

Pete tweeted her with a kiss emoji and replied: "I'm gonna win this tan off, roll on the 22nd!"

When Megan said it was unfair that Pete had already had more time in the sunshine than her, he tweeted her back: "@Megan_Mckenna_ I've had 1 day more and you wasn't exactly a ghost were you? Besides it shouldn't make a difference with your "olive skin"."

Oh, you guys.
