Towie: 13 times our heart was torn in two by episode 13
Both love and friendship are DEAD.
Pete Wicks and Megan McKenna - the fallout
We didn’t see the Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks break up coming, mainly because they haven’t been agonising over it for weeks on our tellyboxes - unlike the other two splits, but it seems we’re going to see a hella lot of the aftermath. Yay!
Megan moves on
If the rumours circulating Brentwood are true, Megan started seeing her ex-boyfriend a couple of days after she and Pete split up.
“What hurts, is that only one of us was ever in this properly,” said Pete.
Other than the full textual affair he had with other women, we guess.
“I’m single, I can do what I want”
Said Megan, which is the reality TV answer to every relationship break ever. And we can see the sense of it.
“I’m just enjoying myself.”
Pete and Amber Turner fight
Amber Turner defended her bestie to Pete, which is hardly surprising: she moved on from her ex Jamie Reed to Dan Edgar pretty swiftly. But Dan is a demigod, in looks at least.
Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby!
Finally, a role for Ruby Lacey. You remember! She and Maddie Hooper joined the cast at the start of the series and we have seen nothing of them since. Until now, when Ruby told Pete what “really” went on with Megan, that she’d seen her out with her ex and they were “all over each other”.
Hang on - is this ex Ex On The Beach’s Andy Jordan? Because if so we are conflicted.
And Lockie stuck his oar in too
James Lock also told his best friend what he’d heard, that Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell said that Megan slept with her ex while she was still with Pete. Cor.
“Hate to say I told you so,” went on Lockie. Helpfully.
Are Gemma Collins and Bobby Norris over too?
We thought they were over their tiff but it seems that we were wrong - Gemma Collins and Bobby Norris still aren’t pals, mega sad face.
“Bobby, deep down in his heart, resents me,” said Gemma. Ouch.
A friend in need
Chloe Lewis and Chloe Meadows advised Bobby on the GC friendship sitch.
“Nip it in the bud, it’s not worth losing a friend,” said Chloe M. And she should know, right?
GC thinks it’s over for good, unless…
“I think you need to some and stay at mine, I want to see you three of four times a week,” Gems told Bobby.
Sounds pretty intense TBH.
Jon Clark vs. Chloe Sims
Jon and Chloe got in a right ding-dong when Chloe took Mike Hassini's side against Jon.
“You was muggy rude to him,” she said. ”He was just defending his friend.”
Blimey. Are there any pals of Lauren’s Jon hasn’t got on the wrong side of?
Jon and Mike round two
Then Jon and Mike themselves came face to face because of course they did.
“Everyone knows that I’m a bit aggressive,” said Jon. Which is very not cool. Maybe work on this anger issues, pal.
Also, is that a phone in Mike’s pocket? Or does he just have a really phone-shaped penis? Lol.
Tommy Mallet and Gatsby
Are currently the best men in Essex.
James ‘Arg’ Argent, James ‘Diags’ Bennewith and Dan who went on an etiquette course in order to “pull better birds”. Shudder,
