Megan Barton Hanson: Love Island stick is sexist…
LOVE ISLAND star Megan Barton Hanson is enjoying an image overhaul after lashing out at the ‘stick’ over her porn video and plastic surgery.
The 24-year-old who paraded in her bikini for millions of viewers oozes glamour in a shoot for Grazia magazine.
Megan bounced between contestants Dr Alex George, model Eyal Booker and Alex Miller before hooking up with boyfriend Wes Nelson in the final — but insists the reaction to her time on the ITV2 reality show was ‘sexist’.
‘People definitely do give girls a harder time than men,’ she said.
‘Look at Adam. How many girls did he go through? They’re painting me out to be the biggest player but it’s a dating show and I tested the water.
‘It’s 2018, and women are still getting stick for acting like men. I don’t see why we’re not equal. Even with the fact that I had sex in the villa, I’m open about that. Women enjoy sex just as much as men. Why can’t we say it?’
Admitting to plastic surgery she said: ‘I worked so hard to get all the money I could and I feel like I can spend it any way I want. If it makes me feel better, I don’t know why that’s seen as a negative thing.’
Megan also defended her time working as a stripper, saying: ‘I did it for a year — I got in, I got out, I earned my money, I didn’t hurt anyone.’
But one part of her past she is keen to erase is an explicit webcam video leaked to adult site Pornhub. She said: ‘I’m going to try and get it taken down. But I think once people have seen it, they’ve seen it. Let a girl live!’ The latest issue of Grazia is out now.
