Megan McKenna is "worried" her relationship with Pete Wicks won't survive on 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The 24-year-old reality TV star and the heavily-inked hunk struck up a romance last year on screen but over the past 18 months they've been plagued with cheating accusations and make ups and breaks but, although they've managed to get their relationship back on the straight and narrow following a holiday in Las Vegas over the summer, the brunette beauty is anxious about returning to the ITVBe series because it could all go wrong again.
Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Friday (01.09.17), she 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."
And it's not just Megan and Pete who are hoping fans will leave them alone this time around as their co-star Jon Clark is praying they don't get as much air time because the show before summer was all about them.
He said recently: "I think people have had enough of the Pete and Megan show.
"It's time for some of us other cast members to show our personality... you're going to see a different side to me, like on 'Love Island'. I was a bit aggy but I've learned how to deal with the 'TOWIE' situations."
Meanwhile, although they're trying to take things slowly this time around, Pete, 28, 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."
