Love Island 2018: Megan Barton-Hanson REVEALS the REAL reason she picked Eyal over Alex

LOVE ISLAND is heating up and the rivalry is well and truly underway as Meghan Barton-Hanson finally revealed why she chose to recouple with Eyal Booker over fan favourite Alex George in last night’s show.


Love Island hopeful Megan Barton-Hanson shocked fans last night when she controversially chose to couple up with Eyal Booker.

The 24-year-old glamour model had considered picking unlucky in love Dr. Alex George, but sent shockwaves through the villa when she announced Eyal, 22, as her man of choice.

However, she seemed to question her decision when she chatted to Rosie about the boys as they worked out.

“It's just early to tell. I fancy him [Eyal] but I just feel like, with Alex, he would have made me feel so much more reassured,” Megan said.

“They're not the same, they're completely different.”

She added: "I could have picked security and felt I was really comfortable and happy, or someone I fancied, but he's [Eyal] just really cold.”

Speaking about the recoupling process in the Beach Hut, she revealed: “As soon as I picked Eyal and Alex was left standing their next to Adam I started doubting myself, thinking, 'Oh have I made the right decision’

“[Alex] is really good looking and such a nice person - I'm obviously not going to tell him I still kind of fancy him a bit because I feel that's messing with his head.

"I'm just praying no other girl comes in and gets Alex if it doesn't work out - I know it's greedy but I don't know - I'm still unsure in my head but I won't tell the boys this."

In later scenes, Alex sat down with Megan to discuss why she picked Eyal over him, and she seemed unsure about her decision.

    She told the 27-year-old doctor: “I just feel really awkward, I feel like you hate me.

    “I just wanted to apologise about the whole kiss thing - it was spur of the moment, but it was really disrespectful and insensitive.

    "But literally we were sitting there and Eyal was like, 'Oh I want to kiss you,' but I literally didn't know he was behind me until we were that close and I looked and he was right there.”

    Megan revealed she chose Eyal because he was "more chill with the whole process”, however Alex did not agree with her testament.

    The former stripper also admitted her parents would be “fuming” at her decision to pick Eyal over Alex.

    But her parents are not the only ones who think Megan should have chosen Alex instead, as fans of the show had taken to Twitter to air their disdain.

    One person wrote: “Honestly feel like Megan would have had a better time with Alex, she always seems on edge around Eyal.”

    Another added: “I want Megan to ditch Eyal for Alex.”

    A third said: “I hope Alex gets his own way instead of Eyal, I reckon Megan will see sense.”

    Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 at 9pm.
