Love Island’s Jessica Shears has revealed a secret friendship with this year’s contestant Megan Barton Hanson.
The blonde beauty, who is currently coupled up with Wes Nelson on the show, has spoken out on her past insecurities and is said to have spent £40,000 on plastic surgery.
Jess, who appeared on the ITV2 show last year, revealed how Megan “craves attention” and doesn’t think she had enough confidence to get men in the past.

“I met her years ago through a magazine we both modelled for. I don’t necessarily agree with what she’s been like, but at the same time, I read an article that said she’s a very attractive girl but with the insecurities of a girl who’s a lot less good-looking,” Jess revealed to new! magazine.
When asked if that’s why she thinks Megan has been with three islanders in the villa, Jess responded: “Maybe where she hasn’t had attention in the past she’s craving it now.
“So anyone who gives her attention, she laps it up. I don’t think she had the confidence to get guys in the past, so now she can’t say no.”

Meanwhile Megan became emotional on Love Island this week as she broke down in tears over her past.
Megan, who used to work in a strip club as well as pose for steamy topless photoshoots, quizzed Wes on whether he’d be happy to take her home to meet his mum during an explosive lie detector test episode on Monday.
The stunning blonde wiped away the tears as, despite his wholly positive answer, his response came back as a lie during the lie detector test.
Admitting she is “embarrassed” about her former job, she muses: “I know deep down if you had a son that was good at everything like you are, and smart and intelligent, would you want them to come back with a girl that’s done glamour modelling and stripping?
“Or would you want them to get with a girl who’s smart like a doctor or sensible Sally who works in an office, do you know what I mean?”
The worry about how the Staffordshire lad’s family reaction continued as she added: “You know that I’m embarrassed of my past and stuff.”
