MEGAN Barton Hanson made a late entrance to Love Island 2018 – but made sure she was remembered by cosying up to Eyal… then Wes…then Alex…and then Wes again.
Here is what we know about the 2018 finalist who recently split from Wes Nelson and got in a spat with his Dancing On Ice partner Vanessa Bauer.
Who is Megan Barton Hanson?
Megan is a 24-year-old glamour model from Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
The stunning lass has previously modelled for Maxim and even been on the cover of 66 Magazine.
Her dating history is a little less out there – she’s had the odd celebrity DM and has dated a footballer but unfortunately Megan wouldn’t name any names.
Megan is a big fan of yoga and considers herself to be quite spiritual.
Was Megan a stripper before going on Love Island?
On August 4, The Sun exclusively revealed that Megan had worked as an escort, hooking up with sugar daddies who showered her with cash and gifts.
Stunning Megan — who has also admitted to making “loads of money” from her ‘porn past’ — lived in an exclusive St Katherine’s Dock pad and drove a Range Rover Evoque before moving back to her hometown of Southend.
In a post-Love Island press conference, Megan said she wanted to turn her back on her past.
She said: “I never want to go back to jobs I had like glamour modeling. I was in the industry a long time — since I was 20 — but I want to move on.
“In the past, I’ve done stripping but I’ve never done porn.”
After flying back to the UK after the show’s final, Megan ditched her agent and joined West London-based Studio 66 Management.
The firm runs “UK Babe Channels” on Sky and Freeview like Red Light Lounge, Flirt Xchange, and Playboy TV Chat.
But a source told The Sun: “Her choice of management company is a bit questionable, especially given her comments.
“Studio 66 specialises in programmes showing bikini girls on the phone, and I’m sure they will trade on Megan’s looks.”
On August 4 it was reported that Megan cancelled all public appearances for “personal reasons”. She was due at Lourenzos nightclub in Dunfermline but a post on Facebook revealed she pulled out.
Are Megan and Wes still together after leaving Love Island?
Megan and Wes stayed together for five months after leaving the villa, splitting at the end of January 2019.
The couple’s relationship was serious and they even lived together in a London flat.
However, the cracks began to show during Wes’ appearance on Dancing on Ice as Megan lashed out at Wes’ partner Vanessa Bauer.
The Love Island star blasted the professional ice skater for her “tactical break up” with her boyfriend and not introducing herself to her at the show.
Taking to Instagram stories, Megan said: “@@Vanessabauer_skates love that you decide to announce your breakup with your boyfriend on the night of your 1st performance with my boyfriend!
“You’ve never reached out to me once or invited me to watch you train, it pained you to introduce yourself to me last night, you didn’t even look me in the eye LOL.
“Hope the tactical breakup got you the headlines you wanted babe. @wesnelson”
A few weeks later Megan announced the couple’s break up with a statement on Instagram.
A source exclusively told The Sun Online: “It’s all about Vanessa. She can’t get over her jealousy and doesn’t trust her.

Will Megan be on Towie?
The Sun exclusively revealed that Megan impressed The Only Way Is Essex bosses during her time in the Love Island villa.
An insider explained: “Towie is one of the most popular shows on TV and bosses are always on the lookout for fresh talent.
“Megan is a really big character and would fit in well. But bosses don’t just pick names and drop them into the mix.
“They need to have a storyline and established friendships within the group.
“She’s known Shelby [Pete Wicks’ girlfriend] and Clelia for a while now so it could be the perfect way in for Megan.
“It’s definitely something being discussed and her name is being banded around. Watch this space!”
