Who is Megan Barton-Hanson? Love Island 2018 star appearing on Celebs Go Dating

MEGAN Barton-Hanson made a name for herself for stirring up the drama while appearing on ITV2's Love Island.

And she has since been in demand on TV ever since – Here's what else you need to know about the bombshell…

Who is Megan Barton-Hanson?

Megan is a 25-year-old glamour model and reality star from Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

She shot to fame when she appeared on Love Island in 2018.

Before that, Megan had previously modelled for Maxim and been on the cover of 66 Magazine.

She has been honest with fans about getting £25k worth of cosmetic surgery when she was 19.

In May, 2019 she appeared on ITV's All New Monty in aid of charity.

Is Megan dating TOWIE's Chloe Sims?

On June 17, Megan confirmed that she's dating TOWIE star Demi Sims after going public at an ITV summer bash in London.

The two TV stars certainly weren't hiding their affection for one another, with Demi posting videos of herself groping Megan during the event on Instagram.

E4's Celebs Go Dating was where the bombshells first met, and though they were looking to find love with a non-celebrity, Megan and Demi ened up braking the rules by dating each other instead – which made for quite a major twist.

A source told The Sun Online: "They stepped out last night for the world to see and groped each other, held hands and put on a very touchy-feely display.

"The show hasn’t even aired yet but we know the final result."

And according to the insider, their romance has gotten very serious lately, adding: "They like each other a lot and it’s the real deal.

"Of course it’s not the ideal scenario for the Celebs Go Dating bosses as the celebrities aren’t meant to date each other, but it’s happened and they’re not hiding it."

It was back in June when Megan decided to come out as bisexual – just one month after it was announced she'd be taking part in the Channel 4 dating series.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the TV personality revealed that her first experience with another girl came at just 16, insisting that "it wasn't even in a sexual way."

At the time, Megan stressed that she just loved having female companionship around her – but that quickly progressed into a full-blown relationship as her feelings for the other woman grew by the day.

"I think long-term I would get with a woman, but it's hard," she had shared. "I really want kids, so that's something I'd need to look into when the time comes."

When is Megan taking part in Celebs Go Dating?

In May 2019 The Sun exclusively revealed that Megan has signed up to take part in Celebs Go Dating.

She will join the star dating agency for series 7.

An exact air date for then the next season will be on E4 has yet to be revealed.

Was Megan a stripper before going on Love Island?

Stunning Megan has admitted to making "loads of money" from her 'stripper past' — she 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.”

Why did Megan split up with Wes Nelson?

Megan and Wes Nelson 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.

Megan blasted the professional ice skater for her "tactical break up" with her boyfriend and not introducing herself to her at the show.

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.
