Megan McKenna wants to take part in Strictly Come Dancing

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna has revealed hopes of starring on Strictly Come Dancing.

Former Celebrity Big Brother housemate and Ex On The Beach star Megan has made a name for herself on TOWIE and is now setting her sights on more reality telly.

Speaking to star magazine this week, Megan revealed hopes of getting back into performing following past experience on stage - including THAT Britain's Got Talent audition.

"I'd love to do Strictly," Megan said. "I went to theatre school, so I'd be in my element."

She added: "I'd love to be in a musical too. I want to paint myself green and be Elphaba in Wicked. That would be amazing."

As well as a potential spot on Strictly, together with a musical theatre career, Megan is also launching a business empire.

She's already released range of beauty products and recently opened her own restaurant Mck Grill in Essex.

Branding herself a businesswoman rather than reality telly star, Megan said: "I enjoy it, but it can be stressful. At the moment I'm trying to film a show while going to the restaurant every day. I'm building my empire."

And Megan revealed her idol was Kim Kardashian: "She came from being Paris Hilton's stylist to having her own empire.

"She's got a family, an amazing house and all her businesses - that's what I want. TOWIE won't be there forever."
