Love Island star Megan Barton-Hanson is back on men – just weeks after saying she’s only dating women.
Removal men sparked Megan’s attraction to guys again as they chatted her up while she moved into her new house last month.
The former glamour model, 26, told MailOnline she met ‘so many good-looking people’ as she relocated to her new property – and now has plenty of potential suitors to keep her ‘entertained’ if she’s bored at home.
‘It’s not about the sex of the person’: Love Island star Megan Barton-Hanson is back on men – just weeks after saying she’s only dating women
In September, shortly after her split from Chelcee Grimes, Megan said: ‘After the relationship with the girl, I was like, “I’m definitely never dating men again.” I thought, “I only want a woman.” I can see myself marrying a woman.’
Megan has since decided that she isn’t bothered by the sex of her next partner, and would rather prioritise dating someone that accepts and supports her.
She said: ‘I said that a few months ago when I had just broken up with my ex-girlfriend and I was like “no, I love being with women, I love the dynamic” but really, it’s not about the sex of the person, if you have that connection and you find someone’s qualities attractive then it doesn’t matter what gender they are.
‘I just want to someone that adds to my life and is super open, funny and accepts what I do and supports me. They need to be a feminist. Whether that’s male or female, they need to be aligned with how I feel.’

Lockdown has made dating difficult for most this year – but Megan was able to meet new people that have since taken her fancy while moving house.
She added: ‘Since moving house, I have met so many good-looking people. Who knew moving house would be such a good way to date people?
‘People I would talk to for different things, furniture and stuff, just random people and we would end up emailing and they’d turn up on Instagram and I’d be like “oh hi.”
‘I just have a lot of cyper baes right now – I mean it’s not going to go anyway but they can just entertain me while I’m bored at home.’

‘They need to be a feminist’: Megan, pictured with ex Wes Nelson, is certain on one thing, her next partner needs to be a ‘feminist’ and aligned with how she feels
Megan, who’s dated Love Island’s Wes Nelson, TOWIE star Demi Sims and footballer Chelcee, joked that she’s on the lookout for a ready made or ‘pre-packed’ boyfriend as she’s grown tired of the dating scene.
She said: ‘I don’t feel like I want to force it – that is the issue for me, I want to just click a button and have someone that I get on with and makes me laugh and it’s easy.
‘I am over the whole dating process and having to find someone and go through the initial stages of dating that are so boring. I want a pre-packed boyfriend.
‘Someone told me there’s a company that sends pre-packed Christmas trees with the decorations already on – that’s what I need with a partner, for him to turn up already done!’
‘I didn’t know how to act’: Megan was shocked to discover that Charlie Brake had joined Ex in the City to confront her – years after she stole his cousin’s hamster during a drunken row
She had prepared to be faced with one of her most recent exes on MTV show Ex in the City, which is in place of Ex on the Beach as the coronavirus outbreak has limited travel this year.
But Megan was shocked to discover that former co-star Charlie Brake had joined the series to confront her – years after she stole his cousin’s hamster during a drunken row which hit the headlines.
She said: ‘The last time I saw him was when I stole his cousin’s hamsters because I didn’t believe he was taking care of it. I couldn’t be more shocked when he walked out.
‘The three exes I expected it to be – it wasn’t them so it completely threw me.
‘I thought Charlie and I were fine so I was a bit shocked what he was saying to me. It was so awkward. I didn’t know how to act, considering I walked in so cocky and confident too.
‘Who wouldn’t want to be on a beach?’: Megan stars in new series Ex in the City, which is in place of Ex on the Beach – and said she missed filming in a bikini
‘I’m going to have to watch through my fingers because I was so awkward it wasn’t a good look.’
As someone famed for her bikini body after being on 2018’s Love Island, Megan feels disappointed that she wont have her moment emerging from the sea on an exotic island, in scenes that viewers are used to seeing on Ex and the Beach.
She said: ‘I won’t lie it was great because in one sense it was one day and you were in and out and the awkwardness is dealt with very quickly but at the same time who wouldn’t want to be on a beach with cocktail.
‘The perk of that I missed out on was meeting other people’s exes – imagine, there’s always fit people on these shows, so that’s annoying! Joey Essex’s girlfriend he left with was stunning.’
Celeb Ex in the City premieres Tuesday 8 of December at 9pm on MTV
