Pete Wicks is reportedly considering quitting "The Only Way Is Essex".

The reality TV star recently split from Megan McKenna and their public break-up has strained his relationships with fellow cast members on the programme, including his good friend Chloe Sims.

A source said: "The situation with Megan is beginning to take its toll.

"He loves being a part of the show but hasn't enjoyed watching his break-up play out in front of the nation. Not to mention the constant arguments that followed and fallouts with pals."

In light of his split from Megan, Pete has questioned whether he wishes to continue with the ITV show.

"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."

Earlier this month, Megan insisted she was "100 per cent faithful" to Pete when they were dating.

The 24-year-old star ended her romance with Pete after one year of dating, but the brunette beauty clarified the circumstances surrounding their split after rumours began circulating that she had been unfaithful.

Speaking to Pete, she said: "I just wanted to say when I was with you I was 100 percent faithful."

And Pete responded: "You're single, you don't need to explain anything to me."
