PETE Wicks took to Twitter to vent after his car was keyed in Essex.
The tattooed hunk had ended TOWIE on a high, making peace with ex-girlfriend Megan McKenna following a tumultuous one-year relationship and deciding to take a break from the show to “concentrate on himself” for a while.
But as Pete no doubt relished in having his freedom back, his mood was quickly dampened after someone scratched his car.
“So someone has keyed my f*****g car AGAIN… sad bunch of f*****g muppets knocking around Essex. Absolute b******ks,” Pete raged to his 370k followers.
And the Essex-based reality TV star was then flooded with comments from fans, with some advising him to “stop taking selfies” in his flash car.
“That’s terrible, sad people!” replied one, while another added: “Leave Pete’s car alone!”
However, one advised: “Don’t take selfies in your car anymore or let it be shown on towie. It has red seats so it easy to distinguish. Your car is goals for many!”

“Drive an old banger, then you won’t care,” suggested a fourth.
Pete’s car ordeal comes after he announced he will be taking a break from TOWIE.
The latest series saw him split with girlfriend of one year, Megan, after their relationship was hit with more cheating allegations.
Pete, who recently proved he has moved on from his relationship with Megan, told The Sun: “The show has been tough. It has definitely been a hard series and I need this break.
“I need to concentrate on myself. TOWIE can be mentally draining sometimes.”
He also addressed Chloe Sims’ claims that he and Megan had got back together, telling the newspaper: “Just because Megan and I are civil doesn’t mean we’re together.
“People don’t understand that we’re able to be civil.
“Not every ex can be as we are and it’s weird to other people but I don’t give a s**t.”
Pete then added: “If Chloe doesn’t like it and wants to keep talking about it then so be it.”
