Former 'Love Island' star Megan Barton-Hanson thinks it would "take the pressure off" if she dated someone who is not in the public eye
Megan Barton-Hanson would prefer to date someone who is not in the public eye.
The former 'Love Island' star has had a few public relationships in the past, including her romance with Wes Nelson – who she met on the ITV2 dating show but later split from after they left the villa – and as a result she thinks it would "take the pressure off" if she embarked on a relationship with someone who is not well known.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I would prefer to date someone out of the public eye.
"It would just be nice to go to the shop and not be spotted.
"I think when both of you are well known it attracts so much attention.
"And obviously from past experiences my first public relationship went horribly wrong at the end.
"So yeah, I think it would just take the pressure off."
Megan has been dating online during the coronavirus lockdowns, and she is taking the positives out of not having to get glammed up and travel into London to meet a potential suitor.
She added: "But this lockdown has done wonders. I've been dating all kinds of people over FaceTime and loving it – no one knows.
"I give it this big, 'Oh, I've been dating online,' but it's only been a few dates over FaceTime.
"I've just been having fun with it.
"It's nice not to have to travel into London. You can sit at home, you haven't got to get glammed up all the way down.
"It's been quite easy."
