Aged just 20, Wes has had quite the career already since winning Love Island. From clothing campaigns to paid Instagram pics, he's managed to earn himself a small fortune.
Wait for it, Wes is a Electrical and Nuclear Systems Design Engineer. Fancy, right?
So what does he ACTUALLY do? Wes’s job is to be involved in designing, building, running or decommissioning nuclear power stations.
The DOI met the beautiful Megan-Barton Hanson on Love Island and the pair have been dating ever since. With the odds against them, Megan and Wes have admitted their relationship is better then ever as he even moved to Essex for her.
Oh yes, he’s not just REALLY brainy, he’s also played football and is a black belt in kick boxing. Is there anything he can’t do?
