TOWIE star Chloe Lewis has said that she "wanted to cuddle" Megan McKenna, following her row with boyfriend Pete Wicks in Marbella.

Chloe and Megan hugging? Yep, we can't picture it either, but having her say on Megan's fallout with Pete, Chloe exclusively told Reveal that, despite everything that has gone on between them, she does sympathise with her co-star.

You'll remember, things have been frosty between Chloe and Megan ever since Megan first joined TOWIE, as Chloe had heard a rumour that Megan had slept with her now ex-boyfriend Jake Hall. Megan has denied this, but Chloe has remained convinced that it did happen and claims Jake even admitted it to her. Viewers, meanwhile, saw Jake categorically deny doing so back on TOWIE's seventeenth series.

Tensions have continued to brew between Chloe and Megan ever since, but the girls did eventually agree to be civil and "make peace" at the end of the show's last series.

Since then, claims surfaced that Pete has been texting an ex 'explicit texts' behind girlfriend Megan's back. While Pete is still yet to comment on the claims, Megan confirmed that she had found text messages sent by Pete to another a girl on his phone.

She told fans it had been "hurtful and heartbreaking" to see and Megan had confronted Pete about the texts while in Marbella filming for TOWIE's new series. Having her say on their row, Chloe admits that she did feel for Megan.

Chloe told us: "Obviously deep down inside of me I think, what goes around comes around, if you treat people in a certain way, you do get treated like that back. I do think that. But I don't think anyone should go through what she is going through.

"I've been there and I know what it's like. It's horrendous. Actually, when they had the argument, I was in my room and I could hear them. Megan was sitting on her own crying and I said to Courtney, even though we haven't seen eye-to-eye and she's done what she has done to me, I sort of wanted to go down there and cuddle her to see if she was ok.

"I genuinely mean that. Obviously I couldn't have, because she probably would have told me where to go anyway."

Pete's ex, Jacqui Ryland, had accused him of sending her X-rated messages behind Megan's back while they were on holiday in Barcelona and filming for TOWIE in Marbella.

At the time, Megan hit out at Jacqui for choosing to go to the press and not contacting her privately. She then shared her side of the story on Snapchat, telling her followers: "You know what, I'm going to actually tell you guys on here what happened. 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."

Megan added: "Just to clear those rumours up, I did know about some messages that were going about and obviously that's hurt a lot.

"That a boy that I thought loved me and I loved could be with me and doing that at the same time. But then like, today, for some girl to sell a story about it, and for me to see messages that I hadn't seen before. That f**king hurts. And to be honest, I don't know why she'd sell a story like that."

TOWIE returns on Sunday 9 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
