The Loose Women panel have suggested Megan Barton Hanson’s fears are ‘all in her head’ after she slammed her boyfriend’s Dancing on Ice partner.
Megan put out a scathing post on Instagram about Vanessa Bauer, who is performing with Wes Nelson on the show, after she claimed Vanessa made no effort to "reach out" to her and was even "pained" when they met after Sunday’s show.
But the Loose Women think perhaps there’s trouble in paradise and maybe Wes should have been the one to invite Megan to his rehearsals, and her issues with Vanessa seem to be "all in her head."
Jane Moore first said: "I think a lot of that [Megan’s post] sounds like it’s in her heard – like, ‘you didn’t speak to me in a particular way.’ I don’t know."

Coleen Nolan followed up: "I have to say these shows, like I’ve done Dancing on Ice, and it’s very long process and you’re with your partner literally eight to 10 hours a day it becomes all consuming.
"And then you get home, you’re absolutely shattered, and your partner’s there and you’re too tired… the only reason there wasn’t that kind of situation with me and Ray at the time was A) my partner was gay so he didn’t have to worry about that.
"I was absolutely gutted though! But I think it would’ve been really difficult as all I’d talk about was me and Stuart…"
Nadia Sawalha agreed, saying if there were any issues in the relationship it could easily cause problems, and they did not have the technology to post something so quickly when she and her partner were young.

But she quickly jumped in: "I do feel quite sorry for her, but you know what’s interesting in that for me is she said you haven’t even reached out and invited me to rehearsal – then he hasn’t then either…"
Jane agreed and continued: "Exactly, why should the onus be on his partner, she may have thought, ‘he’ll invite her if he wants her to be there.’"
Ruth Langsford added that couples have to be "quite mature" to do a show like this, pointing out the pair have not been together for very long.
Megan posted a pretty scathing comment to Vanessa, saying: "Love that you decide to announce your breakup with your boyfriend on the night of your 1st performance with my boyfriend!"

"Hope the tactical breakup got your the headlines you wanted babe"
Vanessa announced her beak up with her boyfriend Louis Nathaniel just before taking to the ice with Wes.
While fans have spoken out against Megan, Vanessa replied with a simple comment, saying: "Because whenever I’m on the ice everything is good again
