In tonight's show, it all falls apart for Laura and Wes after he gets with Megan Barton Hanson.
The pair lock lips in a task, much to the annoyance of Laura and Megan's partner Eyal Booker.
She says: “I feel like me and Wes are getting really close on a friend level. And obviously I’d be lying if I said I didn’t find him attractive but I’m not going to step on anyone’s toes. He’s really happy with Laura, but I can still appreciate someone so I was like ‘yeah, I’m going to give him a kiss’.”
However Laura fears: “He’s told me before that he finds her attractive. When Megan was talking about not getting on with Eyal she’s mentioning that Wes was one of the boys that she had fun with.”
On the subject of Megan, Laura vents that she would be destroying any friendship she has with her if she chooses to pursue Wes: “Obviously if Megan’s going to lay it on with Wes, whether she spoke to me or she didn’t, I wouldn’t think it was OK. I wouldn’t accept it, if she did that, me and her wouldn’t be friends anymore.
"In my opinion, we are seeing each other. If you want to look elsewhere, you can do that and I’m not going to be waiting for you mate.”
Discussing the brewing animosity with Megan in the Beach Hut, Laura admits: “If Megan did try anything with Wes, I would be absolutely fuming because Megan’s supposed to be my friend and Wes and I have been together from the start. I don’t want to make things up in my head and drive myself mad. Nothing’s actually happened, we’ve just played a game of almost like truth or dare.
Later on, just days after their ‘Doing Bits’ confession, Wes and Laura’s relationship is in trouble, as Wes seizes a moment to speak to Laura about his attraction to Megan.
Skirting around the subject, Wes begins: “So basically, today people have been saying I’ve been off, I’ve been distant, I’ve been not fully affectionate. What I’m saying is, I’m being honest with myself and today I just took time to reflect on what we have and what I feel like in a sense and I feel something’s missing.”
Mustering the courage to disclose the reasons for his change of heart, Wes continues: “Essentially what I’m saying is there’s a particular person in the villa…”
Where does this leave one of the villa’s longest standing couples, and how will Laura react when she comes face to face with Megan?
