Love Island's Megan Barton-Hanson announces split from Wes Nelson

Megan Barton-Hanson has announced that she has split from her Love Island boyfriend, Wes Nelson.

The 24-year-old issued a lengthy statement on her Instagram stories confirming the news on Saturday morning.

It read:

"It is with hearts full of sadness that we decided to separate.

"We have been working hard for well under a year, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.

"We are, however, and always will be a family and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost to one incredibly wonderful hamster and we ask for his and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

"We haven't really conducted our relationship that privately and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent we will be able to continue in the same manner. Love Megan and Wes."

Megan soon followed up with a second statement, talking about how she was "so grateful and blessed" to have found Wes.

She added:

"I will always love and adore him and I am so lucky to call him my best friend.

"It has been an incredibly hard decision to make for both os us but we are both looking forward to moving on together as friends and supporting each other one everything we do."

She ended the statement by confirming she will be down at Dancing on Ice this weekend to watch Wes' performance with his partner, Vanessa Bauer.
