The pair have been hanging out since Pete's row with Megan, and fans aren't happy with what they've seen on social media...

Friends stick together, and this certainly seems true for the TOWIE lads right now.

Pete Wicks has found himself in a whole heap of relationship drama after it came to light that he had been texting his ex while holidaying with current girlfriend, Megan McKenna.

There romance might have seemed to be the definition of #CoupleGoals, but a distraught Megan took to Snapchat to confirm the reports, revealing how ‘hurt’ she was by the whole thing.

After a tense showdown, Pete Wicks was flown home from Marbella early, and Megan has wasted no time in putting on a brave face and getting on with her life.

Way to keep strong, lady.

Pete, who is said to be ’embarrassed’ by the whole situation, seems to be seeking consolation in his best friend, James Lock.

It looks suspiciously like the pair went on a night out last night.

Taking to Twitter, Lockie wrote: ‘It would almost be rude not to head down to @seventeen38port tonight courtesy of @P_Wicks01 with @Patch_me_up. Going big! 🍾’.
