Love Island’s Megan Barton Hanson has suffered a sad bereavement since entering the ITV2 villa, as her pet dog has reportedly died.
The glamour model’s pooch Pumpkin is said to have passed away just one week after Megan joined the show, yet tragically she is unaware of the heartbreaking news.
The Sun claims the Pomeranian, which Megan spent £1,600 on just two years ago, was put to sleep after his stomach cancer suddenly haemorrhaged.
A source close to Wes Nelson’s girlfriend told the publication: “Megan will be devastated when she comes out and hears the news about her little Pumpkin.
“She brought her from a Pomeranian breeder when she was just eight-weeks-old.
“One week after she entered the villa, Pumpkin was taken to the vet where Megan’s family was told the pooch had suspected stomach cancer which then haemorrhaged.

“Pumpkin was Megan’s little baby and no doubt it will be a huge blow for her to find out what has happened.”
The devastating news comes as Megan has obliviously been enjoying herself in the villa, telling her boyfriend Wes that she is happier than she has ever been.
Despite appearances on screen, though, her ex Alex Miller claims her romance is not as genuine as meets the eye, exclusively telling OK! Online she’d even confessed to him that she has a boyfriend on the outside.
Reports had been swirling that the gorgeous glamour model has a boyfriend on the outside world before joining the show, after former Olympic GB canoeist Tommy Brady reportedly “dumped” her following her antics in the house.
“I don’t think it’s a secret any more,” he said. “Everyone’s been talking about it.
“She’s said she had been with someone before coming on and was unsure about the future.
“She said he was fine with her going in for the experience, and to boost her following.”
