Pete Wicks considers quitting TOWIE after emotionally draining split from Megan McKenna
The Only Way Is Essex‘s Pete Wicks is considering his future on the show after an exhausting on-screen break-up with his ex-girlfriend Megan McKenna.
Megan and Pete’s relationship has pretty much become the focal point of the ITVBe programme for the last couple of series, especially since his sexting scandal came to attention. However, being the star of the show has taken its toll on Pete, who is now reportedly thinking about quitting for good.
His break-up with former Ex On The Beach star Megan was explosive to say the least, the pair often getting into heated shouting matches with one another in front of the camera. Left drained by the whole ordeal, Pete is now wondering whether to leave his reality TV days behind.
According to The Sun, the 28-year-old has admitted to his friends that he is unsure whether or not he will return to the show once the current series is over.
Speaking to the publication, a source close to the show’s star revealed filming was impacting negatively on Pete, and he has been left in two minds about his future on TOWIE.
“Pete is looking forward to this series coming to an end – it’s been a stressful few weeks and the situation with Megan is beginning to take its toll,” said the insider. “Sometimes he’s wondered whether it’s all worth it and is currently at odds whether or not to return.”
However, perhaps the upcoming break after this series could give Pete the time he needs to heal. The source added: “But with a long break coming up, he hopes he’ll be able to take stock, repair those damaged relationships and return a happier, more positive man.”
The Only Way Is Essex continues tonight (Wednesday) at 10pm on ITVBe.
