Megan had been staying at the £350-a-night Courthouse Hotel in central London, after she enjoyed a date with another reality star at the same club where James, 35, was also partying.

Megan was leaving a nightclub at 1.30am with Life On Marbs star Adam Graham shortly after her ex James arrived with a mystery women.

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

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

During the evening Megan, cut a stylish figure in a pink cardigan with a cherry print and matching mini skirt as she went club-hopping in Mayfair.

While James was seen separately holding hands and looking cosy with a blonde woman, who looked sensational in a slinky black rushed dress and heels.

Megan appeared to be in excellent spirits as she flashed a huge grin while holding hands with Adam, who kept it casual in a black tracksuit and a baseball cap.

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.  

 Megan’s outing with Adam came after she attended the Social Ikon launch party, with the pair heading on to Mayfair’s Bagatelle Club afterwards. 

After leaving the venue separately, Megan and Adam then went on to Luxx Club, where they left soon after 1.30am when Megan’s ex James arrived.

Soon after James arrived at the club, Megan and her male friend were seen leaving and headed on to the Socialista Lounge, where they left holding hands.

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.

They reunited earlier this month when TOWIE star James gifted former Love Island contestant Megan with a cake shaped like her breasts.

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

A source told OK! magazine: ‘She knows it’s for the best and they’ve realised 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.

The pair were in good spirits earlier this month when they were spotted looking tipsy on a night out.

The TV stars put on a racy display as Megan licked James’ tongue in some PDA-packed snaps while celebrating her birthday.

The pair previously ended their brief two-month romance in December, after meeting on during the filming of Celebrity Ex On The Beach.

But James did not ruled out a relationship with Megan in the future, with the pair remaining ‘close friends.’

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 labelled it. 

‘With me and Megan, even though we both found each other attracted, 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’.

The first ended their brief relationship a week after returning from a Christmas city break in New York, where they struggled to get on.

A source told MailOnline that Megan and James had argued on several occasions throughout their romance, including at the Gay Times Honours in November after making their first red carpet appearance together.

An insider said at the time: ‘Megan’s relationship with James hasn’t worked despite her being hopeful after he surprised during the early days of them dating.

‘As time has gone on, they have argued more and the holiday they shared together in New York last week didn’t go at all to plan.

‘James spent Thursday night partying with friends and well and truly enjoying his single status again.’ 

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. 

The former glamour model 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. He’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.’
