EXCLUSIVE: Megan Barton Hanson’s current boyfriend James Lock and her ex-girlfriend Demi Sims sip cocktails and enjoy a cosy chat at ITV Palooza

Megan Barton Hanson’s current boyfriend James Lock and her ex-girlfriend Demi Sims cosied up together at Tuesday night’s ITV Palooza. 

The Love Island beauty, 27, who split from Demi, 25, in 2019 after a brief romance and began dating James last month, was nowhere to be seen at the swanky bash, yet the two TOWIE stars did not let her absence dampen their spirits. 

The TV hunk, 34, was sipping cocktails as he draped an arm around Demi’s shoulder and whispered in her ear at the star-studded party thrown by the network.

Megan and Demi struck up a romance on E4’s Celebs Go Dating in 2019, but later went their separate ways with Megan admitting Demi made her question if she was actually gay or not and said they had no ‘sexual chemistry’. 

James and Megan meanwhile met while filming Ex On The Beach and went public with their seemingly steamy union last month. 

The hunky reality star is a firm friend of the Sims family and is close to Demi’s sister Chloe. Demi and James looked in catch-up mode on Tuesday night. 

Megan opted to sit out the swanky event – possibly for the best given the union of her current love and her former love at the after party.

Megan and Demi’s split was initially fractious following Megan’s comments. 

Her words sparked rage in Demi, however it was later revealed that the pair made amends after falling out following their bitter split. In October last year, Demi revealed to MailOnline that Megan had apologised for her ‘chemistry’ comments.

She said at the time: ‘I unblocked her because I wanted to know what she had to say and she kindly apologised for everything she had done.

‘She knew she was in the wrong with everything she had done to me. She apologised and we wished each other the best. I was really shocked because I didn’t expect her to ever apologise.

‘It felt really nice and it made my heart warm a bit more. I had a bitter frost towards her because of everything she did to me but when she apologised, it made everything better.’

A year later, Megan and Demi proved to be the friendliest of exes as they discussed the beginnings of their relationship and sexuality in Megan’s You Come First podcast.

Megan told Demi she has ‘done a lot for her’ and admitted to developing a crush on her way before they met, after watching her come out as bisexual on TOWIE.

‘I remember watching it with my mum, and obviously I knew I was a bit into girls at the point, so I loved that you represented that. There must have been so many girls that slid in your DMs after asking for advice about coming out and stuff.’
