Speaking to The Sun at the TV Choice Awards, Megan continued: “Basically he actually was one of the people who said to me ages ago that I should go to Nashville and do a show.

“I’d love to get involved in X Factor, maybe – never say never. You never know what’s coming round the corner.”

She added: “I mean I’ve speaking to a lot of songwriters and producers.

“I thought it was quite cool that Now Music you know who do all the albums as they tweeted ‘do you think Megan could make it as a country star?’ It was so cool.”

“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.”
