Megan Barton Hanson has insisted she's single after being seen holding hands with a mystery man during a night out in London.

The 27 year old, who recently raved about her new garden as it got a gorgeous glow-up, had been pictured getting close to a man with a long beard while out at Kensington hot spot Restaurant Ours on 21 May.

In photos obtained by The Sun Online, the blonde beauty could be seen wearing a stunning orange dress with a black leather jacket as she held hands with the man, took his coat and jumped into a cab with him.

Now, speaking exclusively to OK! Online about LELO's new petition to launch a sex emoji, Megan revealed the man is actually a long time friend and she's simply a "very affectionate" person.

When asked if the two are an item, she replied: "No, he's just a friend. I think I'm very affectionate.

"He's been a friend for years, but yeah I had a few cocktails and it was freezing. This is the joy of having guy friends, you're like, 'Oh, can I have your coat?' He held my hand and walked me to the cab."

"But yeah I'd rather not hold anyone's hand when I'm single," she added, laughing.

The former Love Islander star went on to explain to OK!: "Yeah I'm very much single. I've just been focusing on me really. I've got my podcast, I'm recording my second series of that, which is exciting."

Megan, who recently showed off plenty of under-boob in a risqué cut-out top, added: "I'm trying to focus on work and not premeditate on looks.

"I guess if someone comes along, they come along but… I'm just focusing on me this year. Can't wait to have a hot girl summer!"

The reality star then opened up on her partnership with LELO as she said: "LELO is a sexual wellness brand and I've been working with them for a really long time now. I love everything that they stand for.

"They've just submitted an application to have the first ever official sex emoji, which is super exciting. I've got behind that.

"I think we're slowly but surely getting there, breaking down the taboos and making sex and self-love and self-pleasure more normal. There's no shame and there shouldn't be any shame in it."

"But because of the way some people were brought up, it can be hard. So using emojis can be a way for people to bring it up in conversation. Especially now that we're all talking over social media," she added.
