These two have had more ups and downs than a rollercoaster but are Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks back together for TOWIE or true love?

The reality stars have been enjoying what was described as a 'make or break' holiday in Las Vegas but have both been careful not to post any images to social media that show them together. But now their co-star Jamie Reed has told the The Sun's Bizarre column that while they're making it work, it's all for TOWIE.

He said: "They’re back together.

“They are one of the couples that are always on and off and that’s the way a lot of couples are.

“They’re giving it a go for the sake of the show.

“The Only Way Is Essex puts such a strain on relationships some people go backwards and not forwards.”

In fact it seems that being in a couple on the ITVBe programme is a surefire way to break up. Let's hope Megan and Pete can go the distance.

And love woes are not the only problem Ms McKenna is facing as she has been criticised for looking 'too skinny' by some fans after she shared a recent poolside bikini shot.

One follower wrote: "Omg what's wrong. I can see your bones."

While another commented: 'Your a beautiful lady, But please think about the younger generation who follow you who are inspired by u, don't give them a wrong impression that ribs and bones showing are the way to look. Please think!'

But many of Megan's followers leaped to the star's defence and accused those having a go at her of body shaming.

Users wrote: 'Here comes the body shaming. Y'all are disgusting. Leave her alone.'

'She's reaching up and standing on her tip toes...obv, she is going 2 look thinner...!!!'
