Since he left the Love Island villa last summer, Wes Nelson has certainly had his fair share of drama

After leaving the show loved-up with Megan Barton-Hanson, the pair quickly moved in together, with Wes then appearing on the 2019 series of Dancing On Ice.

Meg later let her jealously get the better of her, laying into Wes' ice partner Vanessa Bauer online, before the pair announced they'd split up just weeks later.

And now Wes has broken his silence on his new romance, confirming he's 'dating' blogger Alicia 'Lissy' Roddy.

Wes is currently enjoying a holiday in the US with his Love Island pals, Adam Collard, Sam Bird and Jack Fowler, and he's spoken about his new girl for the first time. When asked by reporters, Wes said, "Everything’s chilling. I’m still dating Lissy.”

The reality star did however confirm they are taking things slow, adding, “I’m not running into a relationship again. I know they’re putting a label on it as a girlfriend but obviously it’s nothing official yet, we’re still dating, it’s nothing like that yet.”


Meanwhile, Wes confirmed he'd split from Megan back in January 2019, with Megan releasing one of the best break-up statements of the decade.

She wrote on Instagram Story, "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 been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."

Closer online reported back in March that Wes had been spending "all his free time" with model, despite months of speculation that he'd been enjoying a secret romance with his Dancing on Ice partner Vanessa Bauer.

"Everyone thought Wes was secretly with his skating partner Vanessa Bauer, but that couldn’t be further from the truth,” a source told The Sun.

“He’s been seeing Lissy for a few weeks now. Although it’s early days, they’ve been inseparable and they’re having a great time together."

"Lissy's the reason Wes was so adamant he wouldn't be getting back with Megan. She is absolutely stunning and he's one very happy man."
