It was clear early on that things were headed for heartbreak, when Pete admitted to co-star Chloe Sims that he didn’t think Megan was over his texting scandal.

Things hit a speed bump for the couple last year, when it was revealed that Pete had been messaging his ex-girlfriend Jacqui Ryland behind Megan’s back.

He said: ‘I feel a bit numb at the minute. After what happened… she’s tried to forget it but she can’t. I love her but I don’t think she’s in love with me anymore. She’s not been in love with me since it happened.’

Chloe replied: ‘If she can’t forgive you, she needs to let you go.’

The pair later had it out, with Megan telling Pete: ‘I love you but I don’t feel the same.’

When he replied: ‘You’re not in love with me,’ Megan appeared to agree, leading Pete to say goodbye and leave the room. Waaah.

Of course, viewers were heartbroken. Tweets included: ‘Last nights towie got me so emosh, that conversation with Pete and Megan was intense 😢😢,’ and: ‘I think my heart just broke into two for Megan an Pete 🙁 #towie [sic].’

But others had something else on their mind. Namely Megan’s, er, false eyelash.

That eyelash got almost as much as attention as Megan McKenna’s break-up…

They couldn’t help noting that the falsie was slipping off her eye. Which was understandable, TBH, considering she was crying her eyes out.

One eagle-eyed viewer Tweeted: ‘I was so focused on the fact Megan’s eyelash was hanging off that I had to rewind to listen to the convo.. 😂,’ while another said: ‘I feel sorry for Megan Mckenna but I really want to give her some eyelash glue rn 😁 [sic].’

LOLz. We think she may have had more important things on her mind, y’know?
