Before Wes started dating Arabella, there were reports that he was found kissing a look-alike of Megan Barton-Hanson named Olivia. The two were celebrating Liverpool’s historic 4-0 win over FC Barcelona in the Champion’s League Semi-final.
The duo had shared an immediate connection when they first met at a fashion party in Dublin thrown by a clothing brand called Nasty Gal. However, the relationship was short-lived as the duo broke up after only three weeks of dating. The pair reportedly got in a raging argument in a nightclub in Los Angeles as Wes kept acting like a single man.
Out of all the relationships Wes was involved in, the most memorable one was with Megan Barton-Hanson. The two started their relationship from the 2018 season of Love Island. The pair seemed firmly in love during the show. Unfortunately, things did not seem to go the way everyone expected.

Things took a wild turn as the news of the couple's split took over. Reports allegedly said that Wes was found sexting with another co-star from Love Island who remained a mystery. To Wes’s defense, he purportedly mentioned that the two talked about cuddling, but Megan still felt betrayed. The duo ultimately broke up in January 2019.

It was also said that the two spent the night together on Megan’s 25th birthday. Sadly, this was not a sign of the couple patching up as Megan branded Wes as a selfish scumbag.
