Love Island Games has always been a rollercoaster of emotions, drama, and unexpected turns, but Megan Barton Hanson’s stint on the show during its latest edition brought an unexpected twist.
A 29-year-old glamour model from Southend-on-Sea, Megan, entered the villa as a bombshell, instantly stirring things up. However, her journey on the show was abruptly left in uncertainty, leaving fans intrigued and wanting more.
Let’s look into Megan’s eventful journey on Love Island Games, her connections in the villa, and the surprising turn of events that occurred to her.
Who is Megan on Love Island?
A 29-year-old glamour model from Southend-on-Sea, Megan Barton Hanson, is competing in the first season of Love Island Games.
On Day 2, Megan arrived at the villa like a bombshell. It was then revealed that she had chosen Steph to be her partner for the previous evening, which meant she would have to face Jess in a duel.
Ultimately, Megan was able to win this duel against Jess with a final score of 3-1 and, in turn, was allowed to couple up with Steph.
Due to the outcomes of the “Most Wanted” game, Megan and Steph ended up in the bottom 3 couples later on Day 4. The safe couples then decided to vote Steph out of the villa, leaving Megan alone.
What happened to Megan on Love Island games?
Megan got sick and left for health reasons. Megan’s departure was announced by Iain, who also verified that her departure was brought on by medical concerns.
In addition, Kyra disclosed Megan’s illness during the episode. The Love Island legend’s departure from the most recent season of the show has been confirmed.
Steph from Love Island France accompanied Megan when she arrived at the villa on the second day. However, Kyra opted to pair up with her during the recoupling ceremony, and the two grew close.
In fact, Kyra thought Megan might still go on. However, the fact that her partner would not be appearing on the show disappointed her. Regretfully, Megan Barton-Hanson will not be continuing in the most recent edition for her fans.
All that can be hoped for, though, is that she will recover and return at some point, perhaps even in the upcoming season.
Love Island Games is in full swing on Peacock, and already we’ve seen everything we expected from the new series, from cute new couples and tough new challenges to the most awkward exit interview between exes Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard.
In addition to Megan’s illness, the couple had to deal with the arrival of Megan’s ex-partner, Eyal Booker, at the villa.
Megan said she wished Eyal had kissed her after the two flirted during a game of “snog, marry pie,” in which Eyal pied her. Regretfully, it seems that Megan’s medical leave will prevent her from furthering her relationship with Kyra or Eyal.
Earlier, Megan opened up about her health struggles on social media, explaining to her followers that she was suffering from pelvic inflammatory disease.
Is Megan dating someone?
Megan, who now proudly identifies as bisexual, has dated a number of women, including Demi Sims from Towie and football player Chelcee Grimes.
In 2022, Megan expressed her excitement to explore her newly discovered identity in an interview. Megan split from fellow Love Island contestant Wes Nelson in 2019 before she started dating the Towie beauty.
The couple, who met on the 2018 series of the ITV show, separated after she accused Wes of getting too close to his Dancing on Ice partner, Vanessa Bauer.
In a recent conversation, the former Love Island beauty talked candidly about one of her relationships.
In an interview with Jamie Laing for the “Private Parts” podcast, Megan talked about her complicated romance—which featured a boy and a girl—with Jamie Laing.
The model and social media star has never hidden her sexual orientation, so when asked, “When did you realize you were bisexual?” she gave an example of a previous relationship and said she was always appreciative of women.
