Megan Barton Hanson Blames Dancing On Ice For Wes Nelson Break-Up

She's also sticking by her guns on her comments about his skating partner.

Megan Barton Hanson has suggested her ex-boyfriend Wes Nelson’s involvement in the current series of Dancing On Ice is responsible for their split.

Last month, Megan announced that she and Wes had decided to end their relationship, six months after first meeting on Love Island.

The break-up came just a week after Megan publicly came for Wes’ dance partner Vanessa Bauer, and she has now claimed that producers’ decision to pair them together led to the demise of her relationship.

She told OK! magazine: “The fact that the producers deliberately stirred things up by partnering Wes with the youngest, hottest girl annoyed me.

“Also the judges making comments like Jason [Gardiner] saying that Wes and Vanessa made a ‘lovely couple’ was frustrating.”

She also claimed they were too different to remain together as a couple, noting that Wes is “younger” and “wrapped up in the fame bubble”.

Prior to the break-up, Megan accused Vanessa of deliberately posting about her own recent love split at a specific time to generate headlines, which she maintains she still believes.

“I stick by my guns that Vanessa knew what she was doing posting [about her break-up] when she did,” she insisted. “It was completely tactical.”

A rep for Dancing On Ice declined to comment when contacted by HuffPost UK.

Since splitting up from Wes, Megan has admitted she’s finding things difficult, noting that she has been subjected to a lot of online abuse.
