Love Island viewers have branded Megan Barton Hanson “a puppet master”, accusing her of dangling Wes Nelson on a string.

The pair had been getting close before the boys moved into Casa Amor, but when Wes returned to the villa he found Megan had chosen to move on with newcomer Alex Miller, leaving him single.

In Wednesday night’s episode of the ITV2 show, Megan approached Wes and insisted she still wanted to be friends, claiming she still had feelings for him and asking for a hug. She later confessed to still fancying him.

It went down badly with fans who accused the model of playing a game and trying to keep Wes on standby in case her romance with Alex hits the rocks.

One person said on Twitter: “Lmaooo megan had this talk with wes to set him up as a plan B. talking about how she still wants to have “a laugh with him” and he took it.

“Wow wow she needs to hold a seminar on how to play *THE GAME*.”

“Megan is just dangling Wes on a string like a puppet master,” said another.

One said: “Megan is basically saying if Alex messes up then Wes you’re back in the game.”

Refusing to give up, Wes hatched a plan to target both Ellie Jones and Megan, announcing: “I haven’t grafted for a girl yet. Are you ready?”

Fans said they were shocked that he was still interested in Megan after she had ditched him.

One person tweeted: “Wes is the biggest side man in the UK. How is he trying to win back Megan who mugged him off so badly?”

“Wes is finished. The guy has lost his head if he tries to get back with Megan,” said another.

“Wes Megan is trouble can’t you see that????” asked one.

Love Island continues on ITV2.
