The 24-year-old television personality has branded her beau and 'The Only Way Is Essex' co-star Pete - whom she struck up a romance with on screen last year - as the "best boyfriend", despite their 18 month relationship being plagued with cheating accusations and make ups and break ups.

She told The Sun newspaper: "Honestly he's been like the best boyfriend, our relationship now is just like better than it could ever be. I'm so happy. I mean I've got quite a lot going on at the moment and I feel like I'm juggling it quite well."

But despite being on cloud nine at the moment, the brunette beauty previously admitted she was "worried" that returning to the ITVBe reality show could mean the end for their relationship, and hopes fans of the show don't hound them on social media.

Speaking last week, Megan said: "I'm really happy with how we are ... That break apart was the best thing that could have happened. It is a worry but we've started it with a clean slate - any relationship is hard but we do get picked on Twitter."

The pair are definitely loved up at the moment though, as Pete, 28, recently revealed he is the "number one fan" of his girlfriend, who is currently trying to kickstart her music career.

Taking to Instagram after the first episode of her music based reality show 'There's Something About Megan' aired last week, he wrote: "I couldn't be more proud of Megan for following her dreams and showing people the real Megan Mckenna. I'll always be your number 1 fan (sic)," followed by a heart emoji and a kiss face emoticon.

Meanwhile, although they're trying to take things slowly this time around, Pete has been thinking about marriage but is convinced he'll need a while to save up because his partner wants him to propose with a huge "rock."

He said: "I never thought about getting married before I was with Megan. [But] like any girl does, she wants a big rock."
