Claims: Back in October, the pair’s romance was rocked by cheating claims after it was reported Megan reportedly disappeared with Pete Wicks during a boozy night out

Hours before announcing their break-up, the blonde beauty was partying the night away to celebrate Burns Night.

However, Megan was seen being comforted in tears after breaking down in tears, with a source telling The Sun: ‘It’s all about Vanessa. She can’t get over her and doesn’t trust her. 

‘He’s been staying in a hotel the past few weeks and not commuting home after DOI to escape the arguments. They’ve been privately rowing nonstop over Vanessa.

‘They both moved out to separate places after the robbery last night,’ it was added.

Wes is also said to be deeply upset and ‘devastated’ that she has ended their relationship.

A source told The Sun at the time: ‘Megan and Pete hit it off from the moment they first started talking – they both seemed keen to get to know each other better…

‘At first Pete was very cautious and made it clear he wasn’t interested due to her being in a relationship with Wes. But as the night progressed they’d both had a lot to drink and were having fun.’

The bombshell and former nuclear systems design engineer fell for each other on the last series of ITV2’s hugely popular dating show in July. 

Only three Love Island couples from the last series remain together – Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham, Kaz Crossley and Josh Denzel and Adam Collard and Zara Mcdermott.

Beginning: The bombshell and former nuclear systems design engineer fell for each other on the last series of ITV2’s hugely popular dating show in July

This comes after Megan shared a throwback to her days as a stripper, a day after she and her now ex Wes were left ‘inconsolable’ by a break-in at their home.

Taking to Instagram Stories the blonde beauty shared a snap of her incredible figure in a revealing white bikini, as she joked in the caption she was balancing life as both ‘super free and spiritual’ and ‘hustle dancing.’

It comes just a day after it was reported that Megan and Wes were left heartbroken as thousands of pounds of jewellery and electrical items were stolen in a break in.

In the post – which she re-posted from a fan account – Megan had her amazing figure on display as she sported a white mesh bikini, with her long blonde tresses styled into simple braids.

The caption read: ‘Throwback to my simple days! When my biggest problem was picking if I wanted to be super free and spiritual or hustle dancing? I picked both for a while.’

The money emojis that followed the post seemed to hint that Megan was referencing her stint working as a stripper, which came to light during her stint in the Love Island villa last summer.

According to The Sun, Megan worked at a club in her native Southend, but chose to leave after breaking house rules by dating a member of staff.

Megan’s post came following reports that she and beau Wes were left devastated  after their London home was burgled, according to The Sun.

A source told the publication: ‘The entire flat was completely ransacked by thieves. They clearly knew exactly what they were looking for because they cleared them out of a huge amount of jewellery and electrical items.

‘Megan and Wes are obviously inconsolable, because a lot of their personal items also got taken in the robbery. The flat was left in utter carnage.’

Megan often shares snaps from inside her household with her 1.8m followers while Wes gives his 1.6m followers a glimpse into their home life on social media.  

The insider went onto add: ‘Wes and Megan really regret putting up pictures of the inside of their home, because the robbers could have been watching.’ 

MailOnline contacted representatives for Megan Barton Hanson and Wes Nelson for comment at the time. 

As if that wasn’t enough, Megan was rushed to hospital with a kidney infection hours before she attended the National Television Awards, but managed to recover enough so they could walk the red carpet together.
