Megan McKenna just wants Pete Wicks to be "happy".

The 26-year-old beauty dated the 30-year-old heavily-tattooed hunk on-and-off between 2016 and 2017, and the pair come face-to-face on a forthcoming episode of "Celebs Go Dating".

Although the former "The Only Way Is Essex" star has no bad blood with her ex-boyfriend, she doesn't see herself rekindling her romance with him or any of her fellow celebrity daters on the E4 show.

Speaking about the family-like bond she shares with the stars on the new series, including Made in Chelsea's Sam Thompson and "Love Island" star Jack Fowler, she said: "We actually hang out quite a lot, all of us.

"We're all like brothers and sisters, we love to have a drink, and we love to have a party.

Speaking about where she is at with Pete, Megan - who split from former "Love Island" star Mike Thalassitis last year after dating for seven months - added to Metro.co.uk: "I just think we've both grown up, we're over it.

"There's nothing more to it. We both want each other to be happy ... I don't hate Pete, I hope he doesn't hate me.

"He did at one point, but everyone does when you first break up."

Meghan recently admitted she initially thought "it was a joke" when she heard that Pete would appear alongside her on the show, but said they were "sweet".

She said: "I mean, I never thought in a million years I'd be back doing a show with Pete. I thought it was a joke!

"It's alright, we've been out a few times a group of us, but let's put it this way, if I was a viewer, I'd definitely be like tuning in. We're sweet - the thing is it was a very awkward first scene."
