TOWIE star Megan McKenna is currently super smitten with boyfriend Pete Wicks and proving so, she has been gushing about him to Reveal...

Megan and Pete first went public with their romance back in March, and last month, TOWIE fans finally got to see the couple make things official during the series finale.

Since then, Megan has been keeping us all updated on their romance with her continuous Snapchats and now, she has told us exactly why she is so crazy about her new man.

We caught up with Megan recently and she told us things between herself and Pete are going "really, really well." So much so, that she insisted: "I can't fault anything about our relationship. He is the perfect boyfriend... He's my best friend too."


Gushing about her co-star, Megan added that Pete isn't your "typical Essex boy." She claims they are more into showing off what they have, but Pete is different.

Megan explained: "I've dated Essex boys before and they are a*seholes. They just love themselves.... Pete isn't like that whatsoever."

Since wrapping filming for TOWIE several weeks ago, Megan and Pete (although they did manage to fit in their first couple's holiday to Dubai) have been forced to spend a bit of time apart.

Not only has Megan had to travel overseas to Miami and most recently Dubai to shoot for her new collection with Miss Pap, she is now currently soaking up the sun in Marbella with her girl pals.

Distance doesn't phase her, however, and she believes that spending time away from Pete has made her like him even more.

"It makes you realise just how much you like someone when you don't get to see them every day," she said.

Absence really does make the heart grow fonder then, eh Megs!
