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?" "

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."
