Pete Wicks has been branded "a complete dog" after he messaged his ex partner whilst on holiday with his girlfriend Megan McKenna.
The 26-year-old 'The Only Way Is Essex' - who began dating his ITVBe co-star earlier this year - has allegedly exchanged explicit texts with model Jacqui Ryland, 30, who he dated in secret for two months in January this year, whilst on a "boring" getaway in Barcelona, Spain, with Megan.
And it has been reported by The Sun online Pete - who is nicknamed Pirate Pete - was fed up of Megan not drinking whilst the pair were away and was regularly "slagging off" his beau to Jacqui, which saw him confess he missed his romance with the 30 year old and was planning to break up with Megan after six-months of dating when they returned to England.
Speaking to The Sun online, Jacqui said: "Why is he doing all these big public affections with her when actually he is just a complete dog? I always thought he was a really nice guy who was respectful to women. I was attracted to his banter.
"So when his dog died I just messaged him to say sorry. The conversation just started back up and before you knew it the old Pete was back being flirty.
"To say you never know what's around the corner and to say stuff like she doesn't drink - it's almost slagging her off. He was making slide little remarks that actually if I was her I'd be really hurt by that."
Among the suggestive messages exchanged between Pete and Jacqui were implications Pete would rekindle his romance with the mother of three if he was single.
One message from Jacqui read: "Not my fault you got into a relationship."
To which the tattooed star replied: "O shut up! It's not my fault either! Imagine if I hadn't...reckon we would still have been talking now?
"It's a shame, it ain't just you that misses [being single] it to be fair!"
And when asked why he embarked on a new romance, the reality TV personality replied: "You never know what's gonna happen!!"
However, Jacqui has admitted she was "shocked" her conversation became sexual and has titled Pete a "loverat".
She said: "He was doing the public affection thing with her and then sending me these messages.
"I think he has this whole public perception of him that he is this big-hearted guy - but I think he is very clever. He totally wooed me at the beginning.
"He was messaging me as she sat next to him at the pool. He even sent me a voice note. How he got away with that I don't know.
"I think given the chance, and had he felt he would have got away with it, I think he would have met up with me. There is a loverat within him."
And Jacqui has admitted she feels "really sorry" for the 24-year-old brunette beauty.
She added: "I just feel really sorry for Megan. Clearly she is a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and I think he could potentially really hurt her."
Meanwhile, Megan - who was gifted a Rolex watch by her beau for her birthday four days ago - has taken to social media to slam Jacqui as she retweeted a comment, which described Jacqui as the "worst type of girl".
The tweet read: "This girls says she 'feels sorry' for Megan McKenna but told the whole world instead of just telling her? Worst type of girl.(sic)."
And Megan - who has been in Marbella, Spain, with Pete and fellow cast members to film 'The Only Way is Marbs' - has revealed she "can't wait" to return home.
She tweeted: "Can't wait to get back to Essex and have a famous McKenna roast dinner... Mum best get them potatoes on for me the weekend (sic)."
Despite the cyber infidelity Pete has recently gushed about Megan and has branded them both as a "misunderstood couple".
He tweeted: "We are a misunderstood couple but I can't put in to words how lucky I am to have a bird that stands by me like she does...@Megan_Mckenna_ (sic)."
