He said, “It's my parents wedding song. My mum and dad genuinely mean the absolute world to me. I can't even thank them enough for how much they've done for me. It's a big thank you to them really. I think my mum and dad completely personify the word 'love.’ ”

Although Wes gets teary when he starts to open up about split between himself and Megan.

He continues, “Of course I've experienced love but I'd love to love like my parents do. Me and Megs we had a really, really good bond and it makes me upset now to talk about it but it isn't great, and it was really, really difficult at the time."
