In the most shocking Love Island episode yet, we watched Megan steal Wes in a drama-packed episode 20.
Megan Barton-Hanson wasted no time and showed little remorse as she went about her boyfriend-stealing business during an extended episode of the ITV2 series.
First, Megan dumped villa boyfriend Eyal Booker.
Next, she left gal-pal Laura Anderson screeching “you slut” as she immediately went about grafting on Wes Nelson, kissing him during a game and asking him to be with her later on in the show.
Here are 7 ways Twitter reacted to Megan stealing Wes!
Megan makes my stomach turn. Snakey and manipulative cow. #loveisland

1. Shoddy Gal-Pal
Viewers watched in disbelief as Megan ruthlessly went about praying on Wes, showing zero care for Laura, who supposed to be one of her closest villa chums.
Megan added “this is why I don’t have girl friends”, presumably trying to make it sound like girls are overly jealous.
Instead, Megan made it sound like she sleeps with all of her female friends’ boyfriends…
‘I’ve never had girlfriends’ sums Megan up, maybe it’s cos you shag their bfs, give a blowy to their dad while mums asleep and eat their grandads ass for a free trip to st tropez #loveisland

Meg is the type of girl that will put it on a plate but call everyone else a slag, claim she has no girl pals but dick comes before her pals, thinks her banter is top class but is as dry as her split ends #loveisland

2. Pure Evil Smiles
A dramatic end to episode 20 saw Laura Anderson crying and yelling abuse at Megan because her relationship with Wes suddenly burst into flames.
Meg-Meg literally couldn’t stop smiling.
Meg was smirking man that’s muggy 😂 #LoveIsland

3. Beg Friend
Adam Collard has been given this season’s honourable title of ‘Muggy Mike’ although Meg looks set to earn her own nickname following her sexual pressure on Wes.
Cornering Wes upstairs for a one-on-one chat, Meg attempted to coax Laura’s boyfriend into kissing her, admitting that she really fancied him.

4. Adam Collard’s Advice
While we’re on the subject of Adam Collard, the demise of Laura and Wes’s relationship kick-started with some delightful advice from villa player Adam.
Oh great, Wes is getting advice from Adam. What could possibly go wrong?! #LoveIsland
— Love Island (@LoveIsland) June 26, 2018
Quipping his life motto that is probably tattooed across his bum, Adam told Wes:
You’ll never regret cracking on.”
Which roughly translates as…
5. Bitter Truth
Wes’s decision to swap out his girlfriend of the past three weeks for Megan – who we’d never really seen him chat with – rocked viewers down to the core.
Consequently, People couldn’t believe that Wes’s decision could be swayed so easily, with fans desperately hoping that Love Island romance isn’t a direct reflection of relationships in the outside world.
Does it not give you proper fear how Wes was happy with Laura until Megan showed an interest … like you could literally be with someone and think you're both happy, then someone could turn their head and you're basically thrown in the bin #LoveIsland

6. Team Laura
While rewinding seven days, a large part of social media was ripping into Laura Anderson for her age.
In contrast, it seems that all is forgotten and a #TeamLaura has formed.
People are desperate to see Laura bounce back from her betrayal, showing Wes that she doesn’t need him and that she can put it on with anyone she likes – without breaking a hip!
Surely I can’t be the only ones who’s going to vote to keep Laura and Wes in, just for them to send a stacked lad with an A* personality in for her to couple with. Bore off Wes, Meg is fit but the plastic surgeons forgot her personality. #LoveIsland

7. Nobody Noticed This
Missed by Love Island 2018 viewers; Georgia Steel immediately went to comfort Laura, the first to jump up from her seat out of all of the girls.
Something quite noteworthy, though, Georgia also did the same when Rosie Williams was dumped by Adam, where she even spent the night sleeping on the outside sofa in order to comfort her friend.
Georgia is swiftly becoming a fan favourite!
