Former Love Island star Megan Barton-Hanson has opened up about a throuple relationship.
The 29-year-old appeared in the 2018 series of the ITV dating show, where she was coupled up with Wes Nelson.
Megan revealed on Jamie Laing’s Private Parts podcast that she entered a throuple relationship after meeting a ‘hot woman’ with a boyfriend.
Made in Chelsea’s Jamie asked her when ‘she realised she was bisexual’.
Megan said: “At college, I had a best friend, and she had a boyfriend and I felt myself getting weirdly jealous when she’d be like, ‘Oh, I’m going to hang out with him now'.
“And I didn’t know whether it was just normal or not. I've always just appreciated women.
“And I think from a young age, even in films, I would never really look at the man. So yeah, I had weird feelings for my friend from college but never like acted on it.”
The Love Island almuna went on to explain how she ended up in a throuple: “I went and had a glamour photoshoot in the south of France and a woman was shooting me.
“She was hot and we were doing this sexy lingerie shoot together and it got a bit heated! When we got back to London, she was like, ‘I’ve got a boyfriend. But it’s an open relationship.’
“So, I started seeing them as a couple.”
Megan began publicly speaking about her sexuality during her time on Celebs Go Dating in 2019.
In a previous interview with The Sun she said: “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.
“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."
The star has recently had an on/off romance with The Only Way is Essex’s (TOWIE) James Locke.
She’s also had relationships with footballer and singer-songwriter, Chelcee Grimes, and another TOWIE star, Demi Sims.
Megan split from her Love Island boo Wes in 2019 after she accused him of getting too close to Vanessa Bauer – his partner on Dancing on Ice.
During her chat with Jamie on the podcast, she also opened up about working in a strip club, her time on the ITV dating show and asking Celebs Go Dating to ‘handpick’ her ‘some hot lesbians’.
