Love Island’s Wes Nelson took to the rink on Dancing On Ice this weekend alongside his professional skating partner Vanessa Bauer, while his adoring girlfriend Megan Barton-Hanson watched from the crowd.
Despite Megan previously revealing she trusted Wes “100 per cent” on the ITV skating show, professional skater Matt Evers has hit out at the reality star for her stone-faced reaction to his skate with Vanessa.
Speaking on Heart Breakfast, Gemma Collins’ skating partner claimed that he had spotted Megan’s unimpressed face as she watched on from the crowd on Sunday.
“She did look a little bit sour last night,” he said. “Be supportive of your boyfriend. You know, he’s working his little tail off right now and he was fantastic.”
It wasn’t just Matt who noticed Megan’s reaction to Wes and newly single Vanessa, with several fans also taking to social media as they caught a glimpse of the star looking on after he joked about their “chemistry”.
Alongside a string of eye emojis, one viewer joked: “Megan be staring at Wes’ hand movements on his ice partner like #DancingOnIce”.
As another added: “Wes might wanna re couple with he dancer on dancing on ice!! Megan is watchin lookin like a scorned ex #DancingOnIce”.
A third agreed: “Lol hahaha Megan’s face is a f****ng picture watching Wes have his hands on Vanessa #DancingOnIce”.
Discussing his thoughts on the Love Island beauty further, Matt Evers went on to concede that he and Megan hadn’t got off on the best foot after comments she had previously made about the show.
As it was announced that Wes had joined the star-studded line-up, Megan joked that he wouldn’t look “manly” in his glitzy show costume, leaving Matt frustrated.
“That’s the first time I’ve ever seen Megan,” he said on the radio show. “Her and I aren’t necessarily best of friends through things that she has said about our show previously.
“And again like I said earlier on the show here, I will defend Dancing on Ice. It is not unmanly to wear sequins and lycra, OK?”
Proving that there were no hard feelings, the TV star swiftly added: “I just want Megan to enjoy life.”
