MEGAN McKenna is arguably the biggest star to star on The Only Way is Essex in recent years.
She has also been on the box with a new reality show There’s Something About Megan and had a successful single, giving Taylor Swift a run for her money – but lost her beau Pete Wicks in the process. Here's the latest on the Towie star…
Here's what you need to know about Megan
Who is Megan McKenna?
Born Megan Elizabeth McKenna on September 26 1992, Megan is the eldest of two sisters.
She grew up alongside her little sister Milly in Woodbridge, Essex.
Before becoming a reality star, Megan had wanted to pursue a career in music, and attended ArtsEd Theatre School as a teen.
Although she also played violin, she focused on becoming a singer, and first appeared on our screens on Britain's Got Talent in 2009.
She joined Towie in early 2016, but by late 2017 she announced she was taking some "time off". It is not known when she'll return.

What is happening between Megan and Pete Wicks?
Megan and Pete started dating around April 2016 and things progressed when she joined Towie.
They even talked of “love” until they were rocked by a sex text scandal in September last year.
The couple reunited a few months later and were officially back together by December that year.
However, their rollercoaster romance hit the skids again in March 2017 and they split again.
They have now split once more and emotional scenes aired on Towie on October 18.
Did Megan cheat on Pete?
Soon after their break up, Megan was seen connected to her old flame, Harry Eden.
Liam Gatsby later threw himself into the mix and sensationally claimed he has evidence to prove Megan cheated on Pete – something her friends have strenuously denied.
One told The Sun Online: “Clearly as Gatsby has no storylines he feels the need to make up lies about Towie’s biggest character in order to get some air time.” Megan and Harry were dating casually, but as of November 2017, that has fizzled out and Megan is now single.

What other shows has Megan been on besides Towie?
Megan appeared on BGT alongside a pal and got through to the semi-finals with their performance as singing duo Harmony in 2009.
Susan Boyle and Diversity also participated that year.
In 2015, she became a cast member on the third series of MTV's Ex on the Beach, which was set in Mexico.
She returned for the fourth series with then-boyfriend Jordan Davies – and they became engaged during the finale but split four months later.
In early 2016, she joined the seventeenth series of Celebrity Big Brother – and became a household name.
