Megan Barton Hanson is reportedly dating footballer Jaydon Gibbs following her split from Wes Nelson.

A source claims Megan and Jaydon – who is the twin brother of England and West Brom ace Kieran Gibbs – are in the “early days” of a romance.

The insider told the publication: “Megan is enjoying a bit of male attention again and felt genuinely excited when Jaydon asked her out — something she hasn’t really felt since the break-up with Wes, which left her in pieces.

“Jaydon is a real gent and exactly her type whereas she wasn’t that into Dele because she felt he was too soon out of his long-term relationship.

“It’s early days and all just fun at the moment, but she’s still intrigued to see where this goes.”

Ent Daily has contacted reps for Megan for comment.

It comes weeks after Megan and Dancing On Ice star Wes announced their split.

At the time, Megan shared a statement to her Instagram which read: “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate.

“We have been working hard for well under a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.

“We haven’t really conducted our relationship that privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner. Love, Megan & Wes.”

Earlier this month, Megan was linked to Love Island co-star Charlie Brake after they partied together last weekend.

Meanwhile, in an interview with New! Magazine last week, the star admitted she was open to dating women as well as men.

When asked if she was attracted to girls, Megan replied: “After this broken heart, I feel like, yeah.”

She added: “I think more people who have this platform need to speak out to younger girls honestly, saying things like…

“‘I’ve had a few sexual partners, I’ve always practised safe sex. I appreciate women and I appreciate men.'”
