Love Island’s Megan Barton-Hanson has admitted that she once slid into Maura Higgins' DMs but was rejected.

The 27-year-old entered the villa in 2018 while Maura walked in as a bombshell contestant a year later.

And Megan, who is openly bisexual, has confessed that she tried to shoot her shot with the Longford native before but never heard anything back after messaging her on Instagram.

Maura recently broke up with fellow Islander Chris Taylor after months of dating, and although Megan said that she doesn’t know if Maura is bisexual, she holds hope that they might get together “one day.”

In an interview with Heat Magazine, Megan said: “I think she's stunning, I think she's a powerful, strong woman.

“But I don't know if she's bi. But hopefully one day.”

Her friend Jack Fincham, who won the 2018 season of Love Island with then-girlfriend Dani Dyer, sat in on the interview and said that he’d “put in a good word” for her with Maura.

Megan then went on to admit that she had messaged Maura in the past.

“I've slid in her DMs and got nothing,” she laughed.

“Have you actually? What did you write?” Jack asked.

Megan responded: “I don't know. Maybe I just sent an emoji, just dipping the toe in. Got absolutely aired!”

Jack laughed but reassured his pal: “She'd be up for it!”

This isn’t the first time Megan has made her attraction to Maura known. In an interview last year, the model revealed that she would have coupled up with the 30-year-old had they appeared on the same season of Love Island.

“I’d love to have coupled up with Maura,” she said.

“I think we’re so similar in so many ways, like our views and stuff – but I don’t know if I could handle her, she’s very high maintenance, but I guess I am too!”
