Their relationship came as a surprise to the cast – after Megan dated ITVBe regular Demi Sims following the breakdown of her relationship with footballer Chelcee Grimes.

The former glamour model vowed during an interview last year that she was no longer interested in men and only wanted to be romantic with women.

Speaking in 2020, Megan said: ‘After being in a relationship with a woman, I would say that’s the most in love with someone I’ve been. I can picture my life with a woman.

‘After the relationship with the girl (Chelcee), I was like, ‘I’m definitely never dating men again’. I thought, “I only want a woman.”

‘It feels like a different dynamic and I felt more myself and more content than I ever had felt with a guy. I can see myself marrying a woman.’

Megan, who found fame on Love Island in 2018, admitted to being pleasantly surprised by James, who she insisted was nothing like his TV persona.

Speaking to MailOnline last month, she said: ‘He’s not really this character that I… well I used to watch TOWIE back in the day when he was the bad boy.

‘He’s so down to earth. He’s easy to talk to. He’s so intelligent and you don’t really see that on TV but, yeah, we’re having a great time.

‘He’s really opened my eyes and we’ve been enjoying a lot of time together. Yeah, he’s really surprised me. I didn’t think he would be like that.’
