The TOWIE cast have just returned from filming in Marbella, and while there, news that Pete had been texting an ex 'explicit messages' behind Megan's back surfaced. Naturally, word spread and now Courtney has hit out at Megan's beau, claiming he 'isn't the gentleman' he makes out to be.
Speaking exclusively to Reveal ahead of TOWIE returning on Sunday (9 October), Courtney said: "I was really upset for Megan. She had just told him she loved him and it was her birthday. It was such sh*t timing and such a sh*t situation. No girl should be put through it. It was horrible to watch. I thought Pete was obsessed with her. I'm shocked at Pete. I thought he was a gentleman. Obviously not. No man should go behind their girlfriend's back and start texting another girl. It's just sh*t."
Pete's ex, model Jacqui Ryland, had accused him of sending her X-rated texts while he had been on holiday with Megan in Barcelona and during the TOWIE trip to Marbella. Pete has not commented on the situation, while Megan did confirm that she has seen texts exchanged between Pete and another girl.
At the time, she had hit out at Jacqui for going to the press instead of contacting her privately, and pictures later surfaced of Megan confronting Pete in Marbella. Megan revealed on Snapchat that it had been "hurtful and heartbreaking" to hear about the messages.
Courtney, meanwhile, told us that she had been in touch with Megan following her fallout with Pete.
"I text her saying, 'If you ever want to talk, I am here for you.' She text back saying, 'Thanks Court,' but she hasn't said anything more. I think she's just with her mum and handling it on her own."
Fans will remember from last series that Megan had fallen out with Courtney and BFF Chloe Meadows, after spotting the girls on a night out with Chloe Lewis and Lydia Bright. Chloe L and Megan haven't seen eye-to-eye ever since a rumour emerged claiming Megan had slept with Chloe's ex-boyfriend Jake Hall (which Megan denies), and Megan came to blows with Megan and Lydia in Palma, Majorca last series.
Depsite clashing with Courtney and Chloe M over befriending the other girls, fans had watched Megan clear the air with her former friends.
We asked Courtney how things stand between them now and she said: "It's just civil."
"Obviously, Megan has been with Pete a lot, so we haven't had the chance to see her," Courtney continued. "Things might change now. I'm just going to leave Megan to it and see what happens."
TOWIE returns Sunday 9 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
