MEGAN Barton Hanson has revealed the awkward moment she "crumbled" when she had to face her ex Charlie Brake for the first time since their break-up.
The 26-year-old admits she was sent into a spin when she clapped eyes on the Love Island star while on a date for MTV's Celeb Ex In The City.
The couple dated earlier this year, but their split turned bitter when Megan swiped Charlie's hamster.
They hadn't spoken in six months before being reunited while filming for the socially distanced TV show at a London restaurant.
Megan told The Sun: "I don't think I'll ever be able to watch it back.
"I crumbled to be honest, I was a mess.
"When I read the 'tablet of terror' and it was an ex, I couldn't even concentrate on my date.
"It was so annoying because we were really getting on, but all I kept thinking was 'oh my god, what am i going to do?'"I was sweating, I did not play it cool at all."
Megan's vulnerability may come as a shock to viewers who know her best for being a man-eater on Love Island.
"It was so shocking for me," said Megan."There were three people I thought it was going to be and then Charlie walks out and I'm like 'what the hell?'
"When he came out I just unravelled, it was a very, very awkward situation to say the least.
"My episode is particularly cringeworthy and I'm very awkward in it so be prepared to see a different side of me, a lot less confident and man-earterish than Love Island."
And Megan admits she found social distancing a strain on her usual dating tactics.
"As we all know, my go to if in doubt is the 'just kiss me line' and that wasn't even effective because they were 2m away.
"It was quite difficult and it put the pressure on my chat – I dont think I've got amazing chat.
"I just take the p*** out of myself and I'm quite light hearted.
"But with everyone being 2m apart so you couldn't have that intimacy and body language kind of thing if you were getting on.
"The pressure was on."
- Celeb Ex In The City airs at 9pm every Tuesday on MTV.
