She dated fellow reality star Jordan Davies after meeting on Ex On The Beach.

She returned for the fourth series with then-boyfriend Jordan- and they became engaged during the finale, but split four months later.

Megan and Pete Wicks started dating around April 2016 and things progressed when she joined Towie.

They even talked of “love” until they were rocked by a sex text scandal in September last year.

The couple reunited a few months later and were officially back together by December that year.

However, their rollercoaster romance hit the skids again in March 2017.

And they seemed to have split for good after emotional scenes aired on Towie in October 2017.
In February 2018, The Sun Online revealed Megan had enjoyed a romantic Valentine’s Day in Amsterdam with Love Island’s ‘Muggy’ Mike Thalassitis.

The couple then split, but as of May 2018 got back together after a blazing row in the street.

On July 31, 2018, The Sun Online exclusively revealed the two had split up for good after Mike stormed out of Megan’s home with his belongings.

Recently, Megan appeared on Good Morning Britain and was asked about if there were any chances of her getting back together with Mike.

Megan insisted that they wouldn’t get back together, responding: “No, I just feel like everything does happen for a reason.”
