MEGAN Barton-Hanson was left devastated when trolls compared her to ex Wes Nelson’s Dancing On Ice partner Vanessa Bauer.
The Love Island star, 25, revealed online bullies would tell her the ice skater is “better suited” to her former flame because she’s “athletic and natural”.
Speaking at the GLAMOUR Beauty Festival in London yesterday, she explained: “I think a big thing was his Dancing On Ice partner.
“She is so the polar opposite to me, I’ve got a very womanly figure and I have curves, I don’t go to the gym.
“She’s very toned and athletic and natural and people are like: ‘see that’s who he deserves, a real natural person’.”
Megan – who split from Wes at the end of January after six months together – added that people forget she still has feelings because of her celebrity status.
The reality TV personality added: “I’m not going to lie, it hurts, I’m human.
“Just because I have a blue tick next to my name and on a show for a couple of weeks, it doesn’t make me invincible, it still hurts.”
Despite trolls’ cruel comments, Megan insisted her ex isn’t shallow enough to have dumped her for her looks.
She continued: “I think Wes is, was, deeper than that. It’s not about the outside shell…it’s about the person you are in love with so I just have to put that to one side and you can’t please everyone.

“Everyone will have their own opinion. Only me and him know what actually happened.”
Her comments came just hours before Dancing On Ice fans begged Wes and Vanessa to become a couple after their raunchy performance in last night’s final.
The duo – who finished second to James Jordan – were told they would make a “great couple” and should get together now the show is over.
