Megan Barton Hanson felt ‘liberated’ when she came out as bisexual in 2019 and was ‘so excited’ | The Sun

MEGAN Barton Hanson has revealed how she felt "liberated" when she came out as bisexual and how a threesome with a couple confirmed it.

The 26-year-old admitted she realised she fancied one of her friends when she was in her late teens and was "weirdly jealous" of her boyfriend.


Now proudly identifying as bisexual, Megan has had a string of relationships with women including footballer Chelcee Grimes and Towie's Demi Sims.

In a recent interview Megan said she was "so excited" to explore her newly found identity.

"I felt instantly liberated when I came out in such a public way in 2019 on Celebs Go Dating when I requested to date women also," she said.

"I was so excited as a bisexual woman from a small town as I had no clue how to find other bisexual or gay women myself."

Before dating the Towie beauty, Megan split with fellow Love Island contestant Wes Nelson in 2019.

The couple, who met on the 2018 series of the ITV show, separated after she accused Wes of getting too close to his Dancing On Ice partner, Vanessa Bauer.

She admitted she regretted how she handles the situation, having "overreacted" and struggled to control her anger.

Megan also called on ITV to do a bisexual series of Love Island, saying that the show needs "more diversity".

She told The Sun's TV Mag: "It’s quite a conservative show in the sense that it’s only set up for straight couples.

"I would love it if they did a gay season. That’s so complex with the re-coupling. It would be nice to see more diversity."
