Speaking to the publication, Wes said of his break-up with the blonde beauty: “To say I didn’t fight for her is silly because it was a mutual decision.
“I didn’t just say, ‘That’s it. I’m done.’ Fight for what? We both ended the relationship.”
He continued: “If she wanted me to say more or do more that day I didn’t know that.”
The 20 year admitted that he still loves 24 year old Megan, who he met and fell for in the Love Island villa last summer.
He said: “Of course I still love Megan. You can’t just drop the feelings after a week of being split up, but loving someone doesn’t mean that they are the right person for you.”
Wes also denied that there is any chance of a romance between him and his Dancing On Ice partner, Vanessa Bauer.
He said: “People have said, ‘Why don’t you get with Vanessa?’ I see it in my comments all the time, but for one has anyone ever asked me if I fancy her?”
He firmly stated: “No I don’t. Vanessa is not my cup of tea.”
Megan famously shared an Instagram post hitting out at Vanessa online, claiming the dancer had announced she had split with her boyfriend “tactically” on the same day of her first routine with Wes on the ITV skating show.
As she opened up on the reason behind their shock split last week, Megan claimed that Wes doesn’t love her.
Of their split, Megan 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.”
