Megan has opened up about her heartache
The Love Island star announced her break up from 20-year-old Wes last month after rumours his ‘close bond’ with skating partner Vanessa Bauer had caused a rift between the pair.
But despite putting on a brave face over the last few weeks, now Megan, 24, has opened up about her struggle to move on from the reality TV romance, telling fans she thought he was ‘The One’.
Taking to Instagram in the early hours of the morning, the Essex babe recorded herself while tucked up in bed.
Fighting back tears, she began: ‘So, I’ve never done this before, like posted anything when I’m feeling really really crap, but I always preach about mental health, not just showing your highlights on Instagram.
‘It’s been a really tough few weeks, and I’ve been filming for like two days solid, so my mind’s been constantly busy.
‘And, now I’ve come back to this new flat I’ve moved into alone, and it’s just sad to come back to complete silence, and I dunno.’
Revealing she thought her romance with Wes was for life, Megan continued: ‘I longed for a boyfriend or a partner for years before I went on Love Island, and then I finally found that – I thought I’d found ‘the one’ so it’s just difficult.
‘And I know everyone’s like, “you need to be happy in yourself and love yourself”, and I do, and that’s what’s sad.
‘I feel like I’m at such a place in my life that I’m so content and happy that I just wanna be able to share these memories and create a little life and an empire with someone else.’
Megan finished her poignant message by explaining that she wanted to share her ‘real life’ with fans, not just the Instagram highlights.
‘I’m so blessed. I’ve had such an amazing time since I’ve left the villa,’ she added.
‘But there’s always gonna be times where you’re just feel like a bit alone and sad.’
Finally, the Love Island finalist shared a post, which read: ‘Love me or hate me I wanted to share that and show you despite peoples circumstances life is up and down for us all.
‘It’s okay to feel down sometimes, time a second brush yourself off, breathe and focus on the future.’
As well as telling OK! Magazine: ‘You can’t just drop the feelings after a week of being split up,’ he went on to say: ‘People have said, “Why don’t you get with Vanessa?”
‘I see it in my comments all the time, but for one has anyone ever asked me if I fancy her? No I don’t. Vanessa is not my cup of tea.’
