Pete Wicks gets Megan McKenna's initial tattooed on his hand
Pete Wicks has got his ex-girlfriend Megan McKenna's initial tattooed on his hand.
The 'Only Way is Essex' hunk is on a mission to win back the brunette beauty after she dumped him last month when she found out he'd sent sexy messages to other girls and, after exhausting every avenue to get the feisty star back on board, he's resulted to getting an 'M' permanently carved into his flesh to prove his love for her.
According to The Sun newspaper, the 28-year-old hunk will show off his new artwork to his best friend James 'Lockie' Lock in Wednesday (02.11.16) night's episode.
Pete - who is often referred to as The Pirate due to his long locks and heavily inked skin - struck up a relationship with Megan earlier this year after she joined the ITVBe series following her explosive stint in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house in January.
The pair have had to endure months of cheating allegations thrown their way by other cast members, but their romance came to an abrupt end over the summer when Pete's ex-girlfriend Jacqui Ryland revealed that he'd been sending her saucy messages via Whatsapp while he was on holiday with Megan in Barcelona.
The long-haired hunk has done all he can to win back the 24-year-old beauty and has even paid a visit to her parents to prove how sorry he is for his infidelity.
Although Megan had initially been refusing to give him the time of day because she didn't think she'd ever be able to trust him again, it seems she's been coming round to the idea as she was seen on a date with Pete earlier this week.
Pete said: "We aren't back together - that's not the case.
"I'm doing everything I can to get her back, of course, but it's going to take a lot of time to get Megan to trust me again.
"I don't know if she ever will. I hope eventually she'll feel the same as me but it's still so up and down and she's told me she's still so confused.
"I know there are going to be a lot of ups and downs.
"If Megan decides there is a future between us she's told me it's going to be a long time before that happens but I've accepted that. I've got all the time in the world.
"I know what I want and I know what my future is: it's Megan."
