Megan Barton Hanson

Are you watching Love Island? If not, why not? It’s all anyone is talking about at the moment here in the U.K.

The Islanders are propelled from obscurity to stardom solely due to their appearance on the show. It’s pretty much like scoring a goal for your country at the World Cup, just without the sense of achievement, acknowledgement of your talent and actual contribution to anything remotely positive.

Anyway, due to the high-profile nature of the show, the skeletons hiding away in the Islanders’ closets often come out to play in the tabloids. They have done once again.

You’re probably wondering why TalkChelsea are talking about Love Island. I must admit, this isn’t the direction I pictured my career going after taking Journalism at degree level.  However, there is a perfectly reasonable explanation.

The family of Megan Barton Hanson, who is coupled up with Eyal Booker on the show, who will have already seen her X-rated snaps circulated around the web in recent days, once went on a date with a Chelsea star.

According to the Mirror, that player is goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. The pair are thought to have gone on a date together.

Courtois split with pregnant (now ex) girlfriend Marta Dominguez last year, and remains very much a free agent (despite having a year left on his contract, ha, ha, ha).

It’s unclear how far their relationship went beyond the date, if at all.
