Megan was meant to appear on the show with Pete to talk about the final week of Celebs Go Dating when the producers decided to get Pete to talk about men’s mental health.
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’.
Megan McKenna has broken her silence since the news broke that her ex-boyfriend Mike Thalassitis has took his own life.
Since the news broke Megan had been silent on social media but then on Monday she decided to share a post.
‘Sorry I haven’t been on social media but I’m in complete shock and trying to come to terms with this.
‘I can’t believe I’m even writing this post. My thoughts and prayers are with Mike’s family. Rest in peace Mike x’
It was in 2018 when Megan and Mike dated on and off thought the year but decided to end their relationship in August 2018.
Viewers to The Real Full Monty Ladies Night have been left furious after it’s been said that the celebrities who have appeared on the show including Megan McKenna,Coleen Nolan, Michelle Heaton and more where apparently paid £10,000 each to appear on the show.
The show was in aid to raise awareness of cancer and they aired all the charity phone numbers at the bottom of the screen to help breast cancer charities and raised £4,000.
Now fans have urged the girls to donate their fee for appearing on the show to breast cancer charities.
ITV never said that the show was for charity and wasn’t meant to raise money for the charities but it was to raise awareness of breast cancer.
One person wrote on Twitter:
‘If you’re doing something for charity it should be unpaid … not impressed.’
Another one wrote:
‘What a farce the “Full Monty Cancer Appeal” by so-called caring stars … Greedy sods I say donate your fees now.’
