It comes days after Wes split from his girlfriend Megan Barton Hanson at the weekend.

Megan confirmed their split on Instagram and joked about the couple's co-parenting of their pet hamster.

She wrote on her Instagram Stories: "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 are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to one incredibly wonderful hamster and we ask for his and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

"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."

Despite their break-up, Megan showed up to Sunday night's Dancing On Ice to support Wes on the show.
