Things then reportedly took a serious turn hours later when it is believed that TOWIE star James was informed of Megan’s room number.

A source told the publication: ‘At one point, the hotel door was kicked. There was a lot of shouting. Megan was shocked. It was all very aggressive’.

The source believed James was handed a key by staff after he showed them photos of himself and Megan.

The insider added: ‘This all happened in broad daylight in a busy hotel. It was very dramatic and Megan’s hotel door was damaged in the chaos’.

James and Megan ended their relationship for the second time earlier this year and both later stepped out with new romantic interests.

Adam found fame on the 2015 reality series Life On Marbs, which followed the lives of millionaire businessmen, former models and privileged club promoters living the high life in Marbella.

The on-off pair went Instagram official with their rollercoaster romance in October last year after meeting on Celebrity Ex On The Beach, but their union lasted just two months before they split after Christmas.

While Megan was said to be ‘upset’ about what happened, it was claimed pals think their ‘weird connection’ meant this may not be the end.

A source told OK! magazine: ‘She knows it’s for the best and they’ve realized the best thing for them to do is to call it a day.

‘But friends of the couple said that they have this weird connection and they can’t keep away from each other, so they wouldn’t be surprised if they got back together.

James previously did not rule out a relationship with Megan in the future, with the pair remaining ‘close friends’ following their split.

In an interview with The Sun he confessed: ‘I’d love to have Megan as a girlfriend, she’s a great girl, she ticks all the boxes, but we never actually labeled it.

‘With me and Megan, even though we both found each other attractive, I can’t speak for Megan but I’ve always found her stunning, I didn’t know if I was her normal type either but then we connected quite soon into the show.’

He added Megan made his experience on Ex On The Beach a lot ‘more bearable’ as the pair share a ‘strong bond’.

James was forced to break the news of his new relationship to ex-girlfriend Yazmin Oukhellou during scenes filmed for the last series of TOWIE.

Their relationship came as a surprise to the cast – after Megan dated ITVBe regular Demi Sims following the breakdown of her relationship with footballer Chelcee Grimes.

Megan vowed during an interview last year that she was no longer interested in men and only wanted to be romantic with women.

Speaking in 2020, Megan said: ‘After being in a relationship with a woman, I would say that’s the most in love with someone I’ve been. I can picture my life with a woman.

After the relationship with the girl (Chelcee), I was like, “I’m definitely never dating men again”. I thought, “I only want a woman”. It feels like a different dynamic and I felt more myself and more content than I ever had felt with a guy. I can see myself marrying a woman.’

Megan, who found fame on Love Island in 2018, admitted to being pleasantly surprised by James, who she insisted was nothing like his TV persona.

Speaking to MailOnline previously, she said: ‘He’s not really this character that I… well I used to watch TOWIE back in the day when he was the bad boy.

‘He’s so down to earth. It’s easy to talk to. He’s so intelligent and you don’t really see that on TV but, yeah, we’re having a great time.

‘He’s really opened my eyes and we’ve been enjoying a lot of time together. Yeah, he’s really surprised me. I didn’t think he would be like that.’
