That's according to axed 'Love Island' contestant Alex Miller - who was briefly coupled up with the 24-year-old model until he was dumped from the island - and he claims two of the sportsmen played for Premier League clubs.

He said: "She told me she'd dated a few footballers.

"Two of them were actually Premier League players."

While Alex isn't sure of the footballers' names, he believes Megan divulged such information to her fellow female Islanders.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "She didn't name them to me. But I'm sure she's told the girls."

This comes after Alex recently claimed Megan had told him she wanted to appear in the villa to further her modelling career.

He said: "It's all a big game to Megan. She told me the reason she'd come on the show was to do more modelling.

"Now I've seen how deceitful she is, I'd like to go back into the villa and confront her and expose her game. Get me back in!"

Since Alex departed the villa, Megan has got back together with Wes Nelson, 20, and she took their romance to the next level earlier this week by asking him to be her boyfriend - an offer he accepted.

And the star's affections for the design engineer grew during last night's (12.07.18) episode when he had to perform a sexy fireman-style strip as part of a challenge.

Speaking in the Beach Hut after the steamy performance, Megan said: "I didn't think it was possible to fancy Wes any more than I already did ... I keep reliving it in my mind."
