Pete Wicks has been having meetings with bosses of 'Celebs Go Dating' following his split from Megan McKenna

Pete Wicks has reportedly signed up to 'Celebs Go Dating'.

The 'Only Way is Essex' star was left heartbroken earlier this month when he and his on/off girlfriend Megan McKenna finally called quits on their tumultuous relationship, but the heavily-inked hunk doesn't want to dwell on the split and is ready to find someone new as he's been having meetings with producers about doing the new series.

A source told The Sun Online: "A week after his split with Megan went public, Pete was approached about appearing on 'Celebs Go Dating'. He met with the casting agent and is seriously considering it. Being on 'TOWIE' is great, but he'd like to show more of his fun side on TV and 'Celebs Go Dating' would be perfect for that.

"The show would love to sign Pete up - he's handsome, has loads of fans and it would be no problem to find girls to set up with him for dates."

However, the 28-year-old heartthrob may need to fight for his place on the forthcoming line up as his former co-star Lauren Goodger is also keen to take part next year.

A source said recently: "She's hell-bent on going one better than Mark and becoming more famous than him, she says she won't give up until she is. Lauren is considering 'Celebs Go Dating' but she's also been asked to go on 'I'm A Celeb...'

"She's been hinting that she's thinking about it and is desperate to return to TV. She'd love a celebrity romance in the jungle so she can relaunch herself. Lauren's been for meetings at the production company that makes the show - they're really keen to sign her up. She makes great TV, she's really popular, and she's been unlucky in love so far.

"Everyone would love to see Lauren get set up with someone special - she's had such bad luck with men in the past, the dating agency could really help her out."
