The Sun newspaper reports that 102,000 viewers tuned in to the opening episode on Sunday evening.

While it was digital channel ITVBe's most watched show of the day, it was seen by a lot fewer viewers than Megan has followers on Twitter (600,000) and Instagram (2 million).

Episode two of the mini-series airs at 10PM on ITVBe tonight from deepest Nashville, where not a soul has heard of Megan.

Attempting to break the American country music industry and truly out of her comfort zone she’ll taste the simple life and cameras are 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 had first started out her music career on Britain's Got Talent.
