Interview with Celebs Go Dating star MEGAN MCKENNA, “A lot of the crew were from The Only Way is Essex so it was nice filming with familiar faces!”

Megan first rose to fame on Ex on The Beach in 2015, gaining a reputation for a no nonsense honesty approach and a true natural style. After releasing her album last year, Megan will tour the UK throughout May & June 2019.


This year saw Megan appear in Series 6 of Celebs Go Dating. “I loved every minute of the show. I would definitely recommend it to other celebrities.”

“It was light-hearted and was a chance to show people my funny side! Filming a lot of other series has been stressful but this was just fun and I found it exciting going on dates.”

Born in Essex, McKenna has also appeared in series such as Celebs on the Farm and The Only Way is Essex.

“The best experience was filming my own show, There’s Something about Megan in Nashville.”


"The best team from all the shows would be Celebrity Go Dating – a lot of the crew were from The Only Way is Essex so it was nice filming with familiar faces.”

She released her album In December and says it was the title track which stood out. “Story of Me meant a lot because it’s about the stages of my life growing up, having my heart broken and how I felt at the time of my past relationships. It’s a very touching song.”

“My second favourite would have to be Paperboy. I think a lot of girls can relate to it.”

Her music career launched in 2017 with the release of her debut EP. “Kacey Musgraves is my all time favourite singer – I love her look, vibe and sound. She’s so cool!”

“I also enjoy Dan and Shay, a country duo who have some beautiful songs. Their harmonies are unbelievable.”

Starting from Thursday 30th May at Southend, McKenna will embark on a UK tour which concludes in Liverpool on Saturday 8th June.

“I am bringing that Nasvhille vibe to the United Kingdom. I want fans to turn up and feel like they are in Tennessee and experience what I do when I am out there.”

“My tour is going to be intimate, touching and raw. I have a guitarist and pianist. It’s literally going to be telling my story through music.”

“At the moment I am rehearing for the tour and have a few other projects in the pipeline. My clothing line (Studio Mouthy) will be launching some new cool drops over Summer.”
