TOWIE's Courtney Green and Chloe Meadows have been defending their best friend Megan McKenna after *that* heated episode this week, saying: "She's like Marmite. You love or her hate her!"

Viewers saw the bad blood between Megan and Chloe Lewis boil over on Wednesday night's (20 July) episode, leading to a clash between them and Lydia Bright, who is on Chloe L's side.

It actually ended up being Megan and Lydia who mostly rowed, with Chloe L taking a backseat.

Speaking to Reveal at the Spectrum launch, Courtney said: "It was so unlike Lydia to go mad like that but Megan gave it back!"

We asked why they felt Megan had been getting agg lately, to which Chloe M suggested: "I think people hate to see each other happy. When I see a happy couple I wish that I had a boyfriend! But if you look at everyone, there aren't many of us in happy relationships and there have been a lot of messy breakups."

Megan and Chloe L's animosity started last series when a rumour surfaced that Megan had slept with Chloe L's now-ex-boyfriend Jake Hall. Megan and Jake both denied it but Chloe L didn't believe them, leading to the breakdown of her relationship with Jake.

Then this series, another rumour began doing the rounds when Chloe L revealed she'd seen Megan dirty "grinding" with a man in Marbella – a man who wasn't boyfriend Pete Wicks. Megan again denied this and Pete stood behind her, saying he trusted her "100 per cent" and nobody could break them up.

Chloe L has accused Megan of ruining her relationship with Jake and admitted to Pete this week she did feel "bitter" that Megan and Pete's romance was going so well when her's had ended. Lydia, meanwhile, got involved to have Chloe L's back and felt Megan was too "aggressive" in confrontations.

Courtney told us: "It's not even jealousy, I think it's a clash of personalities and Megan is such a big personality. She's just so funny and that's what people love about her."

Chloe M agreed, saying: "Megan is like marmite. You either absolutely love her or you absolutely hate her – there's no in between! I think she's competition. A lot of girls didn't warm to us in the beginning but once you get to know Megan she's actually a really lovely girl. When people first meet me they think I'm a bit cold and straight faced but I'm a fun loving person."

TOWIE continues Sunday at 10pm on ITVBe.
