Towie's Pete Wicks says he's NEVER been in love as he slams best pal Sam Thompson & Zara McDermott's rocky relationship

TOWIE star Pete Wicks has thrown shade toward his exes Megan McKenna and Shelby Tribble after he revealed he's never been in love.

The 32-year-old appeared on PrettyLittleThing's podcast Behind Closed Doors where he discussed his love life as well as pal Sam Thompson's rekindled romance with Zara McDermott.

The reality TV star was asked whether he confused lust with love before – to which he admitted he had never "properly" been love.

He said: "I think love takes a long time to show it’s true colours whereas obsession is a completely different thing and people seem to think that’s why people seem to have relationships none stop.

"They’re not in love with every single one of them people. I don’t feel like I've ever really been in love, not properly no".

Before appearing on the ITVBe series , Pete dated former Ex on The Beach star Harriette Harper and had a reported fling off camera with Verity Chapman who appeared on the reality show in 2015.

Pete starting dating Megan McKenna, with their tumultuous relationship documented on Towie.

The pair split in 2017 after a year-and-a half together when Pete was caught supposedly texting other women including Instagram model Jacqui Ryland. 

The exes got back together later in 2017, but shortly split again.

It was then rumoured that Pete hooked up with Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby after been spotted out looking cosy together.

Former Love Islander Amber Davies was the next reality beauty to supposedly be dating the Essex boy.

Pete was pictured with Elisha Hayuraszek in February 2018, after she won a date with him through a Valentine's Day competition.

Pete then had another failed romance with Towie star Shelby, who dumped him as she felt like a “rebound” after his toxic relationship with Megan.

In February 2019 Pete got together with mum-of-one, Georgina Elizabeth Mullins after appearing on Channel 4's Celebs Go Dating.

Then in October 2020, Towie viewers discovered Pete and Chloe Sims had been enjoying a secret on-off sexual relationship for two years.

However, the two fell out after Chloe revealed how she put her heart on the line for Pete but got nothing back.

After opening up about his own love life, Pete weighed in on his pal Sam Thompson's romance with Zara McDermott, who rekindled their relationship after the Love Island star cheated on him.

When asked who was his least favourite couple, Pete confessed: "Listen I could go Sam and Zara couldn’t I? Because that’s not gone f**king too well has it over the past few months.

"Individually I like them both, together they are f**king annoying aren’t they? But yeah, they are both nice people but they’ve had their ups and downs ain’t they but what couple hasn’t.

"To be fair, I like them as a couple in terms that when he’s with her I don’t have to speak to him so that’s always a benefit for me because I don’t have to be involved in that, she sort of takes over so that’s always a good thing."

The ITVBe star then insisted that they weren't the "worst" but rather an "interesting" couple – and joked that he couldn't believe Made In Chelsea star Sam had a girlfriend.

"I don’t know I mean as a couple I think they are an interesting couple, interesting but I think it’s more the fact I just don’t even understand how Sam’s got a bird.”

The couple split in September after she cheated during X Factor: Celebrity 2019.

Sam and Zara reportedly got back together at the beginning of November, but only went public with their reignited romance in December.
