Megan McKenna

Pint-sized pop star

Long before Megan was on our telly screens, she was practising to be a pop star, even moving to an arts high school to study musical theatre.

Spending her teen years singing covers and karaoke, she always dreamed of one day becoming a professional singer and there is the video proof to prove it.

Check out the adorable footage below of her singing Britney Spears when she was younger…

Megan McKenna on Britain’s Got Talent

In 2009 Megan took her chances against the judges of Britain’s Got Talent as she performed as part of a duo with friend Demi.

Dressed in some questionable tutu’s and leg warmers, the girls sang a rendition of ‘ What Is This Feeling’ from the musical Wicked.

Ex on the Beach and TOWIE fame

Megan took a break from her pursuing her pop star dreams to become a reality TV star in 2015 when she made an appearance on the third series of Ex On The Beach.

In 2016 Megan then made a name for herself when she joined the cast of TOWIE and quickly became known for being a fiery cast member, particularly when it came to her relationship with ex Pete Wicks.

However, in 2017, she decided to leave the show in pursuit of her dream in the music industry.

There’s Something About Megan

In 2017 Megan got her very own ITVBe show where she made her first real strides into the world of country pop.

Spending 1 month in Nashville, Megan chronicled her journey as she tried to kickstart her singing career in America.

Megan said living in the home of country music was her ‘dream’ and although she faced some critics, came out on top receiving praise from industry giants.
