Following their split Meghan did a tell-all interview with OK! magazine in which she blamed Wes for their split and that he was more interested in the 'fame'.

She said: "Our ambitions and goals in life are very different - Wes is younger than me and wrapped up in the fame bubble - but I still love him, which is why it hurts so much.

"I fought and fought and fought for Wes but he doesn't love me back."

Megan also blasted Dancing On Ice producers for pairing the Nottingham-born engineer with sexy German professional Vanessa Bauer.

She raged: "The fact that the producers deliberately stirred things up by partnering Wes with the youngest, hottest girl annoyed me.

“Also the judges making comments like Jason [Gardiner] saying that Wes and Vanessa made a ‘lovely couple’ was frustrating.”
