TOWIE star Megan McKenna has told fans she is "so happy to be home", following her fallout with boyfriend Pete Wicks in Marbella.

Megan and Pete had been filming in Marbs with the TOWIE cast for the show's new series and had appeared to be pretty loved-up with each other. However, an ex of Pete's then claimed that he had been sending her 'explicit texts' behind Megan's back while they were away, prompting a huge showdown between Megan and Pete.

Pictures surfaced of Megan confronting Pete about the claims. Shortly after, Pete returned to Essex without Megan, but she has now touched down back in the UK herself.

Taking to Instagram, Megan shared a new photo of herself cuddling her dog Daisy. She told her followers: "So happy to be home with my bubba..."

Although, many of Megan's friends saw her post as an opportunity to send her their support after her drama with Pete. One user commented: "Keep smiling, think ur great , don't let him get u down (sic)." While another said: "Hope you're ok."

Eagle-eyed fans also noticed that Megan has deleted pictures she had previously posted of herself and Pete from her Instagram page. While many then speculated whether that means she and Pete have now split, Megan hasn't made an official comment on where things now stand between herself and her co-star beau.

She did, however, tell Reveal in her column in our latest issue: "I'm sure you've seen the story about Pete... I can't comment on it yet, but all I can say is, tune in to TOWIE to get the truth."

Pete's ex, model Jacqui Ryland, had told The Sun that she "feels sorry" for Megan, as Pete had sent her text messages during their trip to Barcelona and when they were in Marbella that were more than just friendly.

Following her claims surfacing in the press, Megan hit out at Jacqui on Twitter and questioned why she never tried to contact Megan privately, before selling her story. Jacqui didn't respond.

Megan then confirmed on Snapchat that she had found texts on Pete's phone and told her followers it had been "f**king hurtful and heartbreaking" to see. She said: "I actually found some messages on Pete's phone a few weeks ago and they weren't good but I thought I'd give him another chance, because I feel like everyone deserves a second chance.

"And the way that he was speaking to me was that he was really sorry and didn't mean it. Like, obviously it's not right that he was messaging other girls but he told me it was just innocent flirting. I just wish none of this had happened really..."

We've contacted a rep for Pete for comment.

TOWIE returns Sunday 9 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
