Shelby Tribble was "devastated" when she found ex Pete Wick flirting with "ten" girls.
The 25-year-old "TOWIE" star - who ended her eight-month romance with Pete, 29, in an explosive row which aired on the show last week - revealed she was "devastated" when she found a string of "messages" from "ten girls" on the "Celebrity Island" hunk's phone.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I was devastated, I thought he was The One but after reading those texts I was left heartbroken. He was sexting another girl and talking about joining the Mile High Club with her.
"Someone else sent nude pictures to him. I saw all these messages to other girls on Instagram, other texts in his archive - in fact some of the texts were sent just two days before we were due to go to a wedding together in Croatia.
"He was taking me to a friend's wedding yet messaging another woman flirting with her saying "you need to stop putting up sexy pictures." I thought "is this a joke?" "
When Shelby confronted Pete about the flirtatious messages he admitted he was "glad" she'd seen them as it gave him "the kick up the bum he needed".
Shelby added: "He kept saying he was scared and glad I had found them because it gave him the kick up the bum he needed and that he was falling in love with me."
However, the Essex couple were not meant to be after Shelby called time on their relationship and is keen to meet his ex Megan McKenna, 25, after he was similarly found to be sending flirty exchanges to his former flame Jacqui Ryland while the pair were on holiday in 2016
