There's Something About Megan: Megan McKenna gets her own music reality TV show


Megan McKenna has scored her own reality TV show on ITVBe, called There's Something About Megan.

The musical series will follow Megan as she launches a pop career and starts TONIGHT (Sunday) at 10PM on ITVBe.


She'll wrap her Louboutins for a pair of dusty cowboy boots as she heads to the land of Dolly, Dallas and Deep Fried Everything – the USA - and firmly in her sights is the home of country music: Nashville, Tennessee.

But in deepest Nashville, where not a soul will have heard of Megan McKenna, to make it to the top she’ll have to start right at the bottom.

In an exciting new adventure, from the producers of Educating Joey Essex, ITVBe will follow one of Essex’s favorites as she attempts to break the American country music industry.

Truly out of her comfort zone she’ll taste the simple life and we’ll be there to share all the highs and lows that her music journey will bring.

Megan said of the three-part series: “I can't wait to spend this summer in Nashville. I have been a country music fan my whole life so to go to the place where some of my favorite country music artists have recorded really is a dream come true.

"I’m excited but definitely a bit scared as I just don’t know what to expect. I’ve been dreaming about this since I was a little girl so this is my one big shot.”

Megan, who is perhaps best known for her recent appearances on TOWIE and Celebrity Big Brother, first started out her music career on Britain's Got Talent.


In fact, she previously made it to the live semi-finals of the show in 2009 alongside the likes of Susan Boyle and Diversity.

A part of two-piece vocal group Harmony with pal Demi, Megan sang for then-judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan eight years ago, performing What Is This Feeling? from the musical Wicked.

Simon Cowell told the pair: "I hated the song, I'm not crazy about the outfits... I hated the song... [but] I actually liked you."

The duo got three yeses and made it through and went on to sing in the live semi-finals where they performed Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, getting slated by Simon.


"Everything was great other than the singing," he remarked. "The singing was sort of atrocious, but then again the Spice Girls were Number 1 here.

"I just think we should have changed months to years in terms of the rehearsals."
