Megan McKenna and Pete WIcks hold showdown talks

Share article:

Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks had an awkward face-to-face showdown in an Essex restaurant earlier this week.

The 25-year-old reality star and Pete met for the first time since their split to shoot new scenes for "The Only Way Is Essex", and an insider has admitted their encounter was noticeably uncomfortable for the duo.

The source told The Sun Online: "This was their first scene together since their split.

"They spent time talking about the problems that they've faced and how they're going to move forward."

Although a romantic reconciliation doesn't seem to be on the cards for the time being, the insider claimed the pair - who shared a surprisingly friendly-looking embrace - "could still get back together" at some stage in the future.

The aspiring country singer and Pete's last attempt to make their romance work only lasted four months.

But, at the time, a source refused to rule out the duo rekindling their relationship further down the line.

The insider previously explained: "Megan and Pete have given their relationship everything - but it still hasn't been enough

"After an amazing start they have been arguing a lot again and neither of them can handle the stress and pressure of constant rows.

"They are constantly falling out - there's no guarantee that they won't rekindle again."

By contrast, another source claimed Megan was keen to date someone more famous than Pete.

The insider said: "Megan isn't even thinking about dating right now.

"But she knows that when she does move on from Pete, she needs to date someone as famous as her - or more famous - who understands the pressures of her career, plus the fact she'll be flying all over the place as her music career takes off.

"She needs someone who's not intimidated by her success."
