Megan Barton-Hanson has spoken out for the first time since Scott Disick slid into her DMs to order her to apologise to Eyal Booker, saying her ‘mind was blown’ at his message. 

The Love Island star had shared a message exchange between her and Scott after he sent her a DM ordering her to send a written apology to Eyal for ‘mugging him off’ on the show. 

She revealed in an exclusive interview with LIT Entertainment News: ‘Honestly, I didn’t know if it was a joke or if Eyal sent it himself, I didn’t know what the situation was. 

‘But it was mind-blowing that a 40-year-old guy was trying to troll a 20-something year old. I was like, “what is wrong with you?”’

Eyal and Scott’s friendship had blossomed since Scott, 37, started dating Amelia Hamlin, 19, who is the sister of Eyal’s girlfriend Delilah Belle Hamlin, 21. 

Scott had messaged Megan to say: ‘Hey, I recently saw your program Love Island. I had a few questions for you about it. Let me know when you’re around to speak about it’.

Megan, who had had a brief fling with Eyal on the show, had responded: ‘Hey you… What do you wanna know?’

Scott then replied: ‘I was recently introduced to a beautiful man, named Eyal. When I went to see what he’s done on TV, I was astonished by your behaviour.

‘To find you mugging him off and taking full advantage of his unbelievably beautiful sense of humour and vulnerability. I’m extremely disturbed that anyone could be so disrespectful to somebody for no good reason.

‘I would like to know if you’d be willing to write him an apology. The fact you told him he wasn’t funny – when in fact, you are not Jim Carrey is absurd.’

Addressing the use of British sayings like ‘mugged off’ in the message, Megan added in the interview: ‘My mind is blown. Just when you think 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, what the hell has just happened? 

‘I mean, it might be [Eyal]. But then, he’s with his girlfriend, who is stunning. They’re so cute and happy together. I don’t know.

‘But since when do American people use the term ‘mugged off’? Like, do you guys say ‘mugged off’? It’s not a thing, right? Whoever sent this or advised him to send this was definitely British.’

Megan added that she doesn’t think Eyal still has feelings for her and she’s not upset by Scott’s random DM: ‘I didn’t take it that seriously. 

‘I mean, I guess Scott did to write a whole essay. But to me, it’s just funny. And weird. 

‘We looked at the time and my management were like, “He must have sent this at like 5am”. So I don’t know, maybe he was just a bit drunk.’
