Not bothered: Pete Wicks appeared blasé towards his relationship drama on Saturday night, as he revealed he was enjoying a boozy night out in Scotland – without girlfriend Megan McKenna
The reality star gave a raunchy glimpse of his heavily tattooed body as he posed in nothing but a silver necklace for the revealing snap.
Further implying his carefree attitude, Pete then pulled a funny face towards the camera as he prepared for his evening – showing no signs of strain from the stormy state of his relationship.
Clearly ready for a big night out after a dramatic week, the long-haired hunk captioned the shot: ‘Saturday night chills before a few more drinks in Scotland…’

His boozy weekend comes just days after he fuelled rumours of a split with girlfriend Megan – when the brunette was seen in floods of tears after the NTAs.
The star was pictured sobbing hysterically and holding her head in her hands as she headed home from London’s O2 Arena, after a supposed fall out with Pete.
The TOWIE star struggled to control her emotions as Pete snubbed her on his way out of the venue.

The stony-faced hunk reportedly ignored her cries of ‘Pete!’, and instead strode past her and disappeared into the night.
The tattooed star kept his face down, talking on the phone as he walked past his upset girlfriend.
Megan had to be consoled by her companion, who attempted to reassure her before leading her home.
She has since deleted her latest post about Pete and unfollowed the star on Instagram.

After becoming teary-eyed on Wednesday, a seemingly troubled Megan endured a further meltdown on Twitter on Friday – at the hands of online trolls.
Lashing out at comments regarding her relationship with Pete, the reality star took to the social media site to declare she was being ‘bullied’ and ‘harassed’.
The feisty Essex girl defiantly declared she was ‘strong enough’ to ignore the bullies, but pondered why some people believe it is OK to attack her because of her celebrity status.

‘Why do people on Instagram think it’s ok to cyber bully me just because I’m in the public eye?’ she asked during the rant.
Though it seemed that she was more concerned about other people receiving the same treatment, as she signed off:
‘Thank god I take no notice & im strong enough to see all that rubbish… but some people arnt [sic].
‘Surely this should be a crime to harass and cyber bully someone. In the public eye or not. Everyone’s the same… [sic]’

The couple’s chequered romance spins a convoluted tale, with their love starting in March last year when she first joined the ITVBe show, following her stints on Ex On The Beach and Celebrity Big Brother.
Megan’s world was then rocked in September last year when Pete’s former flame Jacqui Ryland revealed he had been sending her explicit text messages while they were together.
Megan and Pete’s relationship suffered the blow when co-star Danielle Armstrong dropped the bombshell on the former EOTB star – revealing the tattooed hunk’s naughty activities.

Despite previously harking about Pete’s ability to calm down her fiery temperament, the beauty showed her boyfriend the entirety of her wrath as she screamed at him on a Marbella beach while filming the TOWIE summer special that day.
In shock at the discovery, the inked-up hunk made his way back to Essex where he was comforted by his best pal James Lock after he broke down over his behaviour and expressed huge regret over his actions.
Hurt and humiliated, Megan returned to her native county where she was comforted by her sister Millie before Pete arrived at her flat in an attempt at reconciliation.
While the alleged philanderer appeared to be seeking forgiveness, Megan was only prepared to launch a furious tirade at her boyfriend who she screamed at during a sit down on her sofa.

When Megan discovered the news of the sexts she was seen shaking her Rolex birthday gift in the TV hunk’s face, saying it had ‘guilt written all over it’.
‘I don’t even want to f***ing hear your voice,’ the television favourite shouted in her boyfriend’s face. Pete made minimal attempts to explain himself as the raging brunette confronted him by the side of the pool.
‘You’ve been telling this girl you want to be single – go and be f**king single then,’ she said to him, after discovering that he had been in touch with ex-girlfriend Jacqui, 26.
However, the pair then reconciled in the TOWIE Christmas special, and had been putting on a united front until the dramatic award show incident – leaving the state of their relationship hanging in the balance.
