Former Love Island star Megan Barton Hanson has said Amy Hart “pushed Curtis Pritchard away,” as she defends him.
Megan made the final of the 2018 series of the hit ITV2 show, finishing in fourth place with ex-boyfriend Wes Nelson.
Amy has suffered a dramatic week in the villa, splitting from her first love Curtis.
After watching the ballroom dancer crack on with ring girl Maura Higgins, Amy will walk from the villa in heartbreaking scenes this evening.
Megan has now made her stance on the situation well known, putting the blame on air hostess Amy.

She told MailOnline: “I’m not a relationship expert, I'm not even in a relationship. But Amy did talk to Curtis about how she worried he didn't find her attractive and things like that, and I don't think that's the kind of thing you should say to the person you’re in a relationship with.
“So while she was doing it I felt it pushed him away more. I think she should have gone and sought help in her friends in there, and told them about her concerns instead.”
However, Megan did empathise with the villa’s latest departure, continuing: “My heart definitely goes out to Amy. I know I would struggle in that situation.

“I think Amy should use CBT [Cognitive Behavioural Therapy] to help her. That helped me when I had struggles.”
She added: “[Curtis] has been open and honest. He tried it with Amy. So many people can be guilty of just going with it in a relationship, even if something is missing.
“You should take a break if something is missing. Curtis can’t fake it. Yeah, they got on but the spark just wasn’t there.”
Megan’s comments come just days after she revealed she felt “embarrassed” to be associated with this year’s female islanders — including Amy.

She told The Sun: “This year, the girls have two ring leaders Amber and Amy and, for me, they are most b***hy of them all.
“It’s like Amy is Regina George and Amber is her Gretchen, trying to make ‘Fetch’ happen. Anna, of course, is in the crew too – she can be Karen.”
She swiped: “They are rude, hypocritical, b***hy and bratty and as a former Love Island woman, I’m embarrassed they’re now in our alumni.”
Love Island continues nightly at 9pm on ITV2.
