EXCLUSIVE: Megan Barton Hanson ‘having fun’ with James Lock and says there’s ‘no pressure’

Megan Barton Hanson has spoken out on her relationship with James Lock, explaining that they're "having fun" as it is early days.

The 27 year old, who recently looked loved-up as she held hands with the TOWIE star, addressed the rumours of a blossoming romance between them in an exclusive interview with OK! Online about dating app BARE.

Insisting that they haven't put a label on what they are to one another just yet, Megan explained that she doesn't "believe in rushing into things".

The former Love Islander said: "We're just having fun, it's early days we're not putting pressure on anything.

"I don't believe in rushing into things just because society says society says a woman approaching 30s needs to settle down so it's just early days really, having fun, going out for nice dinners. We'll see what happens."

Megan, who recently said she "can't wait to see the results" after getting breast surgery, went on to explain she's putting all her energy into her career and the second season of her podcast You Come First.

The TV personality said James, 34, is "on the same page" as her as he's also busy with his career in the spotlight.

She continued: "I'm so focused on my podcast and my career. For me, a relationship isn't my priority right now. It's lovely and I'm enjoying it, but I think James is on the same page, he's got loads going on."

"So we're just seeing what happens. No labels, no pressure," Megan added.

Megan and James were first linked in late September, when they enjoyed a night out together at Amazonico restaurant in Mayfair, London.

"They were clearly having a great time and seemed very taken with each other."

Despite all of this, Megan describes herself as "single" and told OK! about the profile she has on BARE dating app.

"Obviously I've been single for a while now and I think there's so much pressure for a woman settle down and find The One straight away. BARE is just a less serious dating app," she said.

"It's more about exploring your sexuality, being open minded without judgement. I have a profile on there. I've had a few flirty chats to see what's happening."
