Wes Nelson makes a declaration of love to Megan Barton Hanson in tonight’s Love Island.
In this evenings episode, as Wes and Megan grow closer, and rejuvenated following the Islanders’ decision to save them as a couple, Wes has something to say.
Taking Megan for a private conversation on the terrace, Wes reflects on their last few weeks together.
He begins: “We’re boyfriend and girlfriend now so whatever happens in here is technically irrelevant. Obviously I’d love to go the distance. We’ve got to where we are for a reason and it’s worked out.
“If we weren’t happy we would say to each other we weren’t happy, but I can honestly say I’ve never been happier. Like, ever, ever. Before this. Obviously I value every single second, every single day I wake up with you.”
In a heartfelt admission, Wes then declares the true extent of his feelings towards her: “For me my Love Island journey started when I met you.
“Honestly, I’m just getting deeper and deeper. I am falling in love with you. It’s been a couple of weeks, like two weeks, but I am falling in love with you. I’m not going to lie. I do love you and I think I’ve been thinking it a couple of days.
“I’ve been thinking ‘is it too early for me to say it?’ but I obviously didn’t know how you felt so I didn’t want to say it and then obviously sound really wet.”
Pressing Megan on her own feelings, Wes is relieved when his sentiments are reciprocated: “You know I do. You know I love you. I said it the other day quietly. I do. I haven’t been this happy in such a long time.”
Reflecting on the milestone moment, Wes tells the Beach Hut: “It’s something I’ve wanted to say for a long time and she’s said it back. I’m buzzing. I’m the happiest man alive again.”
Love Island 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
