MEGAN Barton Hanson broke down in tears as she opened up about her “really tough few weeks” in an emotional Instagram Story earlier this evening.
The 24-year-old beauty admitted that she had struggled coming home to her empty flat alone as she expressed her heartache at her split from Wes Nelson last month.
Megan remained off-camera throughout the multiple posts, instead filming her darkened bedroom as she spoke to her followers.
Regularly sniffing, and with her voice cracking at times, the Love Island star explained: “I’ve never done this before, posted anything when I am feeling really c***, but I always preach about mental health and not just showing your highlights on Instagram and it’s been a really tough few weeks.
“I have been filming for two days solid so my mind has been constantly busy and now I’ve come back to this new flat I’ve moved into alone and it’s just sad.
“I’m back to complete silence and….”
The star continued: “I just longed for a boyfriend or a partner for years, before Love Island, and I thought I’d found the one and it’s just difficult.
“Everyone is like ‘you need to be happy in yourself’, and I am, and that’s what’s sad.
“I feel like I am at such a place in my life where I am so content and happy and I just want to share these memories and create a little life and empire with someone else.”
Megan went on to justify why she had posted the emotional video to her page, sharing: “Everyone always puts on their best nights out… Going on their holiday… But this is real life.
“I am so blessed and I have had such an amazing time since I left the villa but there’s always times where you feel alone and sad and I just wanted to share with you.
“It’s not all happiness and positivity all the time.”
She followed up with a written message that read: “Love me or hate me, I wanted to share that and show you despite people’s circumstances life is up and down for us all.

“It’s okay to feel down sometimes. Take a second, dust yourself off, breath, and focus on the future.”
Although nothing romantic has happened between Wes and Vanessa, the star admitted that she was struggling to cope and publicly slammed the skater for “disrespecting” her relationship at the time.
