Wes Nelson thinks Megan Barton Hanson wished he'd never done "Dancing On Ice".
The 20-year-old star split with his 24-year-old partner - six months after they met on "Love Island" - due to the intense training regime of the skating show, and he claimed that she would have preferred a "simpler life".
Speaking on "This Morning" he said: "I think she wishes I didn't do "Dancing on Ice" just purely because we wanted a simpler sort of life but it's very difficult when you've come out of a show like "Love Island".
"You've gotta strike while the irons hot. There's a sense of, I'm very career driven so after leaving the show I thought strike while the iron is hot. I've got all these opportunities ahead of me it would be silly for me not to utilise them."
The blonde beauty had previously slammed Wes" professional dancing partner on the show Vanessa Bauer for her "tactical" break-up from Louis Nathaniel, and claimed the skater hadn't been welcoming towards her.
However, Wes has insisted that Vanessa had nothing to do with their break up and claimed the pair called time on their romance because of his hectic schedule.
He explained: "It's made out to be Vanessa this Vanessa that and it's not that. It's more so the fact that it's all so time-consuming and you're away from home all the time and it makes it very difficult to plan things ahead.
"In a normal relationship, you can [plan] ahead you can say "oh we'll go to this place here we'll have a date night this week" with my schedule and training it changes day by day week by week."
