Megan Barton Hanson says she broke up with Wes because she wants to be engaged by 30

Same, tbh.

Megan and Wes broke up recently. 

So did Josh and Kaz, and then before them Jack and Dani did - only to eventually get back together for the brand. Sorry, we mean because they love each other and are meant to be together.

Before their breakup, Megan and Wes had a bit of a moment regarding Wes's Dancing On Ice partner, Vanessa Bauer.

After things ended, there was much speculation that it was all because of Vanessa, an assumption that Megan has vehemently denied.

The Love Island contestant has since told Grazia that she and Wes actually broke up because she wants to be engaged by the time she's 30 - and Wes just isn't at that place in his life right now.


"It all ended very amicably," Megan said.

"I really love Wes as a person, but we realised we are in very different stages of our lives and our priorities are different.

"I’m 24 and by the time I’m 30 I want to be engaged. Wes is only 20. He’s living his best life."

Living his best life, indeed.

Following their split, Megan shared a statement on Instagram mirroring Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's breakup message, stating that they had decided to "consciously uncouple."

"We are, however, and always will be a family and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been," she said.

"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."

She also added that they would continue to "co-parent" their hamster.

The hamster is currently believed to be in the care of Megan's mother.
