And the success story, who has cited Taylor Swift as one of her inspirations in country music, revealed that she planned on ‘telling a story’ about the difficult times she’s had.

‘I’ve got a lot of songs in the bank so I’m gonna be releasing a lot more interesting stuff and I’ve got more stories to tell. There definitely will be some – I wouldn’t necessarily say revenge songs – but country music is like telling a story about all the hard times you’ve had.’

When asked about whether she would consider moving to America, Megan was adamant that she wouldn’t leave Essex behind.

When asked about the difficulties they had faced having their relationship aired on TOWIE, Megan was keen to stress the strength of her and Pete’s relationship.

‘I think it’s in general being in the public eye that’s hard. But we are going back into the series as a strong couple and nothing can get to you when you’re strong.’

Pete agreed, citing the change they had gone through individually before getting back together, and the fact that they were both in a bad place before.

Staying strong: 'It¿s more about how [Megan and I] feel about our relationship and at the minute we are better than we ever have been. And so s*d it, it doesn¿t really matter what anyone else is saying'

Pete added: ‘Me and Megan don’t wanna be around the negativity, we are just doing our own thing – happy vibes only. It’s TOWIE there’s always a bit of drama.’ 

The pair admitted that they were shocked at some of the hook ups in Marbella while the new series of TOWIE started filming – namely, Lauren Pope and Jon Clark.

However, Yazmin Oukhellou, who was also discussing the latest series of TOWIE with her co-stars, admitted that her nose job – which she unveiled last month – has made her feel happier than ever.

‘I’m a lot happier now than I was before. My nose was broken and had a deviated septum, but obviously I had it done for cosmetic reasons as well. It’s something I have wanted for a long time, not just because I’m on TV. I’m glad I got it done.’ 

The pair had appeared on This Morning earlier in the day on Friday, with James ‘Lockie’ Lock and Yazmin joining them for a candid chat about what to expect in the new series of TOWIE.

Megan reaffirmed why her and Pete would weather the storm this time around. 

‘We didnt give each other that time apart before but we had three months out and we fell back into and started it clean slate, that’s why it’s different this time.’

Pete agreed: ‘We put issues to bed in Vegas- when it’s just us two we’re the best, it’s when other people get involved it goes pear shaped.’
