TOWIE fans slam Pete Wicks as star goes from hero to villain in one episode
So, the TOWIE cast returned to our screens last night in a new series of The Only Way Is Marbella… and no one can stop talking about the ‘Pegan’ drama!
After the truth surfaced about Pete Wick’s flirtations with his ex-girlfriend whilst he was in relationship with Megan McKenna, no one could take the tattooed star’s romantic gestures seriously.
Until the recent revelations, ‘Pirate Pete’ was viewed as the gentleman of the show, and fans even questioned his decision to date the fiery-mouthed Megan McKenna considering he seemed like such an all-round nice guy.
But how the tables have turned! Last night viewers slammed Pete during the premiere episode of the ITVBe reality television series, jumping to Megan’s defence as they watched her fall for his sweet talk. The show saw Pete treating Megan like an absolute princess on her birthday in Marbella. He entered with a huge bunch of flowers, before presenting her with a Rolex watch (Yes, you read that correctly!) and the world’s soppiest card ever written.
The card read: “This may be your first birthday with me but it won’t be the last. I have my faults but you’ve stood by me and I thank you for that. I have so much admiration for you and everything you’ve achieved, and I’m lucky to have you in my life.”
“I’m behind you no matter what, and I love you. You’re my best friend, and the best girlfriend a geezer could ask for.”
Well, that screams guilty. Fans watched Megan fall for his over-the-top gestures in dismay, criticising the Essex lad on Twitter:
Wow Pete that was almost believable #TOWIE

However, it doesn’t look like Megan will be fooled by her man’s charm for much longer, as the preview for Wednesday’s episode showed the former Ex On The Beach star screaming at Pete on the beach:
Uh oh… You might have wasted your money on that Rolex, Pete.
It isn’t looking good for the former power couple of Essex. Could this be the end of Pegan?
The Only Way Is Marbella continues Wednesday at 10pm on ITVBe.
