Megan Barton-Hanson set to join Towie in awkward love square

Former Love Islander Megan Barton-Hanson looks poised to join The Only Way Is Essex.

Amid rumours she’s set to join The Only Way Is Essex, former Love Islander Megan was seen sharing a kiss with 34-year-old TOWIE star James Lock in London last weekend. They were described as seeming ‘inseparable’ and ‘very taken with each other.’ Megan and James are thought to have got to know each other while filming the upcoming series of MTV’s Ex On The Beach.

A source told OK!:

James and Megan are having a bit of fun. It's nothing serious, they both like each other and are enjoying spending time together. He's definitely got his hands full with her, but he's said he's into her. There's already rumours about her going on TOWIE and obviously that would be very awkward for her ex, Demi. She was also linked to Pete Wicks at one point so it could all make very tense viewing.

Megan Barton-Hanson dating history

As well as Lockie, Megan has history with two more current TOWIE cast members—Demi Sims and Pete Wicks. While her fling with Pete Wicks was only ever rumoured, Megan had a brief relationship with Demi Sims after they met on Celebs Go Dating - so there’d almost certainly be some drama if Megan did join TOWIE.

However, back in 2019 Megan insisted that she was done with reality TV, saying:

My reality days are done, I don’t think there would be a pay cheque big enough to make me do another reality show. It’s so tiring. I’ve never been that sort of person who said ‘I want to be famous, I want to be in the public eye’. I want to wake up and do something I feel fulfilled about, documentaries about mental health, the sex industry or being bisexual. No more reality for me.

That being said, she clearly changed her mind for Ex On The Beach—so could TOWIE be next?
