Dancing On Ice's Wes Nelson has spoken about his split from Megan Barton Hanson, insisting he isn't a jealous person amid her close friendship with her personal trainer.
Wes Nelson's broken his silence over his shock split from Love Island co-star Megan Barton Hanson and has revealed he's 'not a jealous person' as his ex grows closer to her 'rock', personal trainer, Matt Fiddes.
Talking to a tabloid, Wes called his ex's claims the relationship ended because he didn't love her any more 'silly' and he described the split as a mutual decision, saying:
"We both ended the relationship. If she wanted me to say more or do more that day I didn’t know that."
Megan has found a support system in her personal trainer, Matt, who was Michael Jackson's bodyguard for a number of years and has expressed how fond he is of the 24-year-old reality star, writing on Instagram:
"She has had a tough start to 2019 to say the least! However she has some great plans for the rest of the year! Back tougher than ever!"

Megan has also praised her trainer, writing: "You have been my Rock! Training with you has really helped me stay calm and clear my mind. I honestly believe people cross paths for a reason!"
However, 20-year-old Wes insists that he's not jealous of her close relationship to the martial arts expert, saying:
"He’s got a wife... and a lot of kids. He’s twice her age, why would I be jealous of that? She’s not trying to make me jealous, she knows she won’t because I’m not a jealous person.”
He's also happier being 'sex free', saying: "Do I miss the sex? Of course! But am I begging for it? No, I am quite happy training and just being sex free for now."
Megan's now moved out of the flat she shared with her ex which was also burgled a few weeks ago and she took to social media to mark the end of the chapter.
