ITV bosses have had enough...

The Only Way Is Essex star Pete Wicks has landed himself in hot water after it was reported that he had been sexting his ex Jacqui Ryland while he was holidaying with girlfriend Megan McKenna in Barcelona.

Silly move Pete, did you not see Meg's meltdown on Celebrity Big Brother?

But it seems Meg is not the only one Pete is in trouble with.

The tattooed hunk has also angered show bosses who have sent him home from Marbella early because there is "so much drama".

A source told The Sun: "Pete was due to stay on till the end of filming in Marbella as he is one of the main cast.

“But he is being sent home early. There is so much drama on set right now and they are hoping this will ease the tension.”

Even James Argent revealed he wanted to escape as "all hell" was breaking loose, while close pal of Meg, Danielle Armstrong was fuming with the claims.

James wrote: "All hells broke loose in this gaff!!! Get me back to #Essex #marbs.”

Danielle vented: "Men will always rule the world because women can’t stick together…Slag girls entertaining boys with girlfriends makes me so angry."

You and us both Dan!

In pictures released, Meg can be seen screaming at Pete after finding out about the texts.

Shortly after, she took to Twitter to SLAM the model after she exposed the messages.

Meg wrote: "Feel sorry for me do ya? Why didn't you personally contact me then you fame hungry brass. I've seen it all."

She added: "Didn't feel sorry for me while you was sending dirty messages back did ya? Or selling the story to the paper".

The drama kicked off when mum-of-one Jacqui decided to speak out after seeing loved up pics of Meg and Pete.

She told The Sun: “Why is he doing all these bug public affections with her when actually he is just a complete dog?

“I always thought he was a really nice guy who was respectful to women. I was attracted to his banter."

“So when his dog died I just messaged him to say sorry. The conversation just started back and before you know it the old Pete was back being flirty.”

Jacqui admitted she was shocked when she saw loved up pictures of the pair together, as her chat with Pete had taken an x-rated turn.

She added: “He was doing the public affection thing with her and then sending me these messages.

“I just feel really sorry for Megan. Clearly she is a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and I think he could potentially really hurt her.

“It makes you think – is he just messaging me? Or are there loads of other girls?

“I think he has this whole public perception of him that he is this big-hearted guy – but I think he is very clever. He totally wooed me at the beginning.”

In some of the messages, Pete told Jacqui that he was having a "boring" time with Megan and that he may split with her.

Poor Megs, although we know she is a strong woman who can handle anything.
