Pete said on Tuesday afternoon that he had spoken to Mega since the news broke as he said:

 ‘I’ve spoken to her very briefly and I think Megan needs time to process what’s happened it was a big shock for everyone, especially for Megan. She’ll be OK it’s tough for anyone to deal with’.

Then talking about finding out that Mike had passed away he continued to say:

‘On Saturday night, I was out with friends. It was such a tragic thing to happen to anyone who is in public eye hard for his family my thoughts go out to his family’.

Speaking on men dealing with mental health as a man in the public eye, he went on: ‘When people see people in the public eye, it’s very glamorous life, you’re living your best life… but you never know what’s going on in closed doors…

He then continued to say:

‘Everyone has their struggles and it becomes more shocking when it’s everyone who knows nationally. I’ve dealt with that myself anything you go through you put yourself in TV where everyone can judge you for everything…

‘You do not necessarily something should happen when you have to go through anything on social media it’s heightened and escalated it has a different effect’.

 

Tina Malone Breaks Down On This Morning Over John Venables Post

She’s said it’s been the worse two years of her life but it seems all what’s happened has caught up with Tina Malone on This Morning.

The former Shameless actress appeared on the morning chat show to talk about how for the last year she has been going through legal drama after she shared a suspected photo of John Venables on her Facebook page.

It was only recently that Tina was given a  £10,000 fine and an eight-month suspended sentence for her actions and now she has confessed that she cant take her daughter to Disneyland due to the massive fine.

Tina explained that she didn’t know how much trouble she would get into for sharing the post what only took her seconds to do.

Talking to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby Tina said:

“I have never on my father’s grave sent an email, I don’t know what ‘copy and post’ is. I truly don’t know what all that is.

“I’m a technophobe. I have a pad and a pen to write. This has destroyed me.

“I’m terrified, I’ve got to pay it back, I’ve got to go home and tell the five year old that you can’t go to Euro Disney … I feel like I’ve let me mum down and me husband, but it was my fault. I’m not feeling sorry for myself.”

She then continued to say:

“I’m a devout Catholic. I would never incite violence. At Christmas, a Father came round to give us money, to get us through.

“We were going through a really difficult time. My daughter was five in December, I promised we’d take her to EuroDisney this June. For the third year running we couldn’t have a birthday party for her, even on her fifth birthday.

“So I’d just got this big job, in January, a new drama, great script, incredible scripts, female, all very positive. Then I got this through the post. I thought I was going to lose the job. And then obviously, oh Gosh I’m really sorry. It means we can’t go EuroDisney, I’d be lucky to even go Disney shop and buy a Belle or Rapunzel.”
