Megan Barton Hanson has faced multiple romance rumours recently, following her break-up from fellow Love Island star Wes Nelson.
The blonde beauty took part in a game on Capital Radio this week, where she revealed to the hosts that The X Factor star James Arthur had slid into her DMs – but refused to relay what he said.
After rumours ran rife, Megan has now spoken out about what happened.
Insisting she was only ‘bantering’, Megan posted to her Instagram Stories: “So silly now, I was bantering about James we have been friends for years and was nothing in it!
“It was a game. Obviously not going to bait anyone out that had actually slid in there on that level. I know I’m ruthless but not that much.”
James’ representative also spoke out about the claims, telling MailOnline: “James and Megan had a conversation at the BRITS about using their social platforms to promote mental health issues.
“They then exchanged messages post BRITS to say it was good to see one another.
“James has only ever been friendly and polite to Megan and has never said anything inappropriate to her.”
During an interview on Capital FM, she told hosts Roman Kemp, Vick Hope and Sonny Jay that she had been contacted by James via Instagram.
Megan had played a game of DM Chicken with the trio, and made the revelation that she’s been contacted by the Say You Won’t Let Go hitmaker.
When Roman asked Megan to read out the 17th DM in her inbox list, she told listeners: “So, James Arthur.”
Former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Vick called out: “Oh! James, James! What does it say? Can you repeat it?”
Roman pleaded with the beauty: “Megan, please tell me this is something fine.”
But Megan declined, letting down the radio hosts by stating: “I’m not gonna repeat it.
“Is it really a shock? He’s like a serial DMer,” she continued to tell the Capital hosts.
