Megan McKenna has said that filming on The Only Way Is Essex is worse than Big Brother or Ex On The Beach.

After a record long 20 episode series of the ITVBe series, Megan says she can't wait to have a break from the bitchiness.


"It's a shame – I get on with a lot of the cast but this series was so bitchy, it was the bitchiest series I've ever done," Megan said this week.

She continued: "Even over other shows I've done like CBB and Ex on the Beach – all of them, it s**ts all over that.

"I felt like this series, there were a few people that were really supportive but it's very clear who I don't get on with, and I just thought, 'Why can't they just let me get on with my life, why do they have to get so involved?'"

Speaking to OK! magazine, Megan went on to defend pal Amber Turner after all the ups and downs of the recent series.

Megan explained: "With Amber it takes people a bit of time to get to know her – she's not a horrible person, she's just honest. The cast need to back off her a little bit, she's not a nasty person, and they just need to give her a break."

She recalled the last day of filming: "I turned up to filming with Amber and we just had such a good day.


"Normally I'm worried about what's going to happen, who I'm filming with and if there's going to be arguments, and normally I'm really stressing, but I was so happy, and just kept thinking, 'Oh my god I'm not going to see some of these people for at least three months, I'm absolutely buzzing!'"

The Only Way Is Essex will return to ITVBe later this year.
