Megan Barton-Hanson left Loose Women viewers baffled with her confusing interview.
The Love Island star has found herself in a bit of a feud with boyfriend Wes Nelson’s Dancing On Ice partner Vanessa Bauer.
Megan lashed out at Vanessa in a scathing public statement following her first performance with Wes on the ITV show.
Megan had felt it was inappropriate that news of Vanessa’s split from boyfriend Louis Nathaniel surfaced on the same night, and let her know it.
And the reality star appeared on Loose Women today to speak about it – but her interview didn’t go down that well with viewers.

During the chat, Megan said she felt that she’d felt really hurt by the situation she found herself in.
She said: "He smashed it. He got the highest scores out of everyone there and it was just taken away from him because when we woke up all the headlines were focused on me being bitter and people saying, ‘Oh she looks like a jealous ex, look at her’."
Megan said she felt like she was "fighting a losing battle" and went on to explain that while Wes HAD invited her to watch him train, she felt it should have been Vanessa who reached out to her, woman to woman.
And viewers of the show couldn’t seem to understand why Megan felt the way she did.
While some fans still have her back, others said she was being "insecure" and that she should have gone along to rehearsals when her boyfriend asked her.
One person said: "Really Megan? Maybe you just need to grow up a little. Your insecurities are shining through and you hate not being the centre of attention I thought it was your boyf on the show not you?"

Another commented: "Megan, it isn’t vanessa’s job to invite you to the training or reach out lol. Your insecurities and jealousy are showing and the way you went after Vanessa publicly was horrible – no excuse."
While one said: "sorry Megan but if you want that night to be about Wes and not headlines ….why would you post on social media knowing what would happen"
Another person watching the interview wrote: "Hmm I think Megan needs to take a minute out. Not buying this whole woman to woman thing. Don’t understand why she refused to go to rehearsals if Wes has asked. Surely she would have gone if she was that concerned"
And one posted: "I do like megan but right now she is looking a bit immature and bitchy.. you were invited down, stop causing an issue"
One asked: "why does she keep preaching about women supporting women when she is literally on loose women because she disrespected wes’s dance partner"

After news of Vanessa’s split emerged, Megan posted on Instagram : "@vanessabauer_skates love that you decide to announce your breakup with your boyfriend on the night of your 1st performance with my boyfriend!
"you’ve never reached out to me once or invited me to watch you train, it pained you to introduce your self to me last night you didn’t even look me in the eyes LOL hope the tactical breakup got you the headlines you wanted babe"
She later deleted the post.
Vanessa has not publicly responded.
