Wes Nelson mocks ‘jealous’ ex-girlfriend Megan Barton Hanson
Love Island 2018 star Wes Nelson has mocked his ex-girlfriend Megan Barton-Hanson after he shared holiday photos with Arabella Chi.
The 21-year-old reality star is currently lapping up the sun rays in Ibiza with the model, who was in the 2019 cast for roughly three days after the public voted her out.
Wes captioned his new post with Arabella, his Instagram official new girlfriend, with; "Sugar n’ spice err’ting nice."
‘Being black and in the media is harder’: Yewande Biala opens up
Love Island's Yewande Biala has opened up about what life is like when you're black and in the media.
The 23-year-old Irish scientist says being black means "you have to be 10 times better than everyone else", she told 1Xtra Talks.
Yewande was one of the 2019 cast originals, but left the show after Danny chose Arabella over her in a brutal dumping.
She says: "When I got into this I realised being black is hard, but being black and in the media is harder.
"You have to stand out and you have to do more and it can get quite frustrating," she adds.
"You feel like you're not doing enough, but just keep pushing to keep doing what you're doing and someone will see how amazing you are."
The reality star also claims that finding love in the villa was harder because of the colour of her skin.
Yewande's best friends were candidates Amber Gill, who is mixed race and Anna Vakili, who's Iranian, and she says "we all struggled".
"We didn't find anyone who liked us. It was always someone coming in and saying 'my type is blonde and petite'. We'd just look at each other and say 'they're obviously not here for us'."

Yewande also spoke about the pressure of social media outside of the villa, and how she copes with it.
She says "the majority of people were super supportive" in public platform comments, but that she did receive some hurtful direct messages.
"When I came back from Mallorca I got such a tan. I was so dark but I loved it.
"And people would come to me like, 'Oh you're too dark, like why are you so dark? Why are you so black, you're too skinny'. It was just stupid."
Yewande was also quizzed on her feelings about Danny Williams and Arabella Chi.
Model Arabella Chi is now dating Wes Nelson from the 2018 series, while Danny is dating Jourdan Riane after falling for her during the Casa Amor segment only days after Arabella was dumped.
The scientist says numerous articles appeared online about her which portrayed a tired stereotype used against black women following her dumping.

"I tried not to read any articles about myself because I didn't want to get upset. I think they were trying to label me as the angry black woman, which was kind of insane.
"Not once in the villa did I ever raise my voice or feel like I acted in that way, even considering the circumstances I was in."

Ex Love Island stars Wes Nelson and Arabelle Chi confirm romance
Ex Love Island stars Arabella Chi and Wes Nelson have confirmed their romance after they were spotted getting cosy together on a Manchester night out.
The duo were pictured getting close while out clubbing, with photos showing the couple heading off to the Malmaison hotel on Thursday morning.
The pair went on low-key date to the cinema today, making their fling official. Rumours of 21-year-old Wes, from the 2018 show, and 28-year-old Arabella first swirled at the end of July.
The pair went on a romantic pizza date together back then, and new images obtained by The Sun show the couple walking hand-in-hand. It's almost as if they wanted to be pictured together, eh?
The model reunited with Wes when she returned from a work trip to Mallorca. The couple were later seen kissing at the table, and have been seeing each other ever since.
Arabella was voted out of the villa this year after only three days after catching the attention of 24-year-old model Danny Williams, who was coupled up with Yewande Biala.
Danny ended up dumping Yewande for the blonde bombshell, but she was voted off the next day by the public and her fellow housemates. Danny has since started another romance with Jourdan Riane
Wes coupled up with Megan Barton-Hanson in the 2018 series and the pair went on to date for six months before their bitter split over Dancing on Ice cheating allegations.
Arabella and Wes's relationship status comes as Megan appears Celebs Go Dating, getting emotional over her break-up with her Wes.
Megan said that she felt "embarrassed and betrayed" after finding out that he was sexting Love Island winner Amber Davies. Time will tell whether this is just another fling for Arabella and Wes.

WTF? Love Island’s Jourdan and Danny are already talking marriage
Controversial statement incoming; Love Island's Danny Williams and Jourdan Riane have already discussed marriage, despite having only known each other for less than a month. Sounds super real, doesn't it?
The ITV reality stars confirmed their relationship after they were dumped from the island weeks before the final, and now say they're completely in love.
The pair have obviously been plagued with accusations of a 'showmance', but are emphasising that their love is real when they appeared on a Channel 5 online interview today.
"Could you guys see yourselves getting married?" presenter Will Njobvu asked them. "Are you going to marry me?" Jourdan quizzed Danny, leaning in to his face.
"Are you going to marry me? Are you going to propose?" he responded. "Wooow!" Jourdan laughed. "No, I can see this lasting."
Danny gushed to his new girlfriend: "I said to you, when you met my parents, this has got long-term written all over it, and I've never said that before in a relationship. She met everyone – grandmas, little cousins, everybody loved her, and for me that's a massive thing."
"And vice versa," Jourdan added.
"I think if that's happening already I can definitely see long-term future plans with you," Danny said. "We've got holidays booked already, it's good."
Jourdan commented: "We're best friends already, it's a very chilled relationship. It's working. Hope so, fingers crossed it works. I do see it lasting and working."
The couple were dumped by their fellow Islanders for being the least compatible romance, but have made a flying start to their relationship on the outside.

They attended a star-studded viewing party of the final, where Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea became king and queen of the villa and split the £50,000 between them.
Danny and Jourdan were joined by none other than Yewande Biala, who was fuming when Danny's head was turned by Arabella Chi in the villa and chose the model in the next recoupling, leaving her dumped.

Ex-Islander Danny Williams calls the police over racist death threats
Ex-Love Island star Danny Williams has revealed that he's contacted the police over a series of racist death threats made against him.
The 21-year-old model commented that the abuse he's been receiving has been "worse than you can imagine."
He told OK! Magazine: “I’ve had death threats, racism, people threatening to come ‘round to my house and hurt my family."
He continued; “As worse as you can imagine, I’ve had it all. And it’s still happening today. Daily.
“When it’s racist and it’s threats and you have to get the police involved that’s next level. And it got to that extent."
Social media has been a cesspit for death threats targeting reality stars;
“I'm going to bed at night I go on my phone like everybody else does, and you see some of the people saying they're going to come and kill me or, 'You're a horrible sick f' and whatever.”
He added: “Everyone’s entitled to their opinions, but there’s never an excuse for that kind of stuff. It’s horrible.”
Danny became an infamous Love Island character known as the 'travel agent', as every girl he liked ended up on a plane home.
His relationship with Jourdan Riane appears to be getting stronger by the day, at least.
During an interview on Capital Breakfast with hosts Roman Kemp and Vick Hope, the pair announced that they'd become official.
Roman quizzed the pair on their relationship status, asking: "Have you dropped the girlfriend/boyfriend question?"
Jourdan replied with a teasing comment; "Potentially…" However, Danny then confirmed: "Yeah we have, it's official."

Love Island: Charlie Frederick was STILL dating new gal Arabella
In the words of Curtis, ''Holy…''
Charlie Frederick, an Islander from the 2019 series, already had one former gf in the villa in the form of Lucie Donlon.
And now he has another as new girl Arabelle Chi has landed.
But hold on.
According to Charlie, they're still together…or he thought they were until he saw her on the television.
WE CAN'T WITH THE DRAMA.
The took to Instagram Stories to blast Arabella, claiming that she told him she was going away for a campaign – not to crack on with hot guys for a summer on national television.
He is (understandably) raging.
He wrote, ''Finding out that a person I'm seeing on a serious level has just strolled into the villa completely disregarding my feelings and our relationship or what we had. I feel like I have to air these screenshots because I feel like I've been completely mugged off.''
He continued, ''I'm truly upset that Arabella has lied to me about what she was doing and claiming she had a campaign but instead going into Love Island.''
He added, ''Every relationship has its ups and downs but these next screenshots are all within the last 2 weeks. I'm truly gutted and for the life of me cannot figure out why she has DONE THIS."
Woah – can you imagine, like?
If you need us, we'll be sitting back with a cup of tea eagerly waiting for these juicy screenshots…
