After releasing her debut album Story Of Me in 2018, Megan has impressed the nation with her talent as she continues to sing her original songs on the ITV show.

Megan – who has also appeared on the likes of Celebrity Big Brother and Celebs Go Dating – has previously said she is keen to move away from television to focus on her music career, and hopes Simon Cowell’s talent show will be a step in the right direction.

She explained: ‘Hopefully this can be my crossover point, where people stop thinking of me as a reality star and start thinking of me as a musician.

‘I want people to see that I’m not just about reality TV – music is what I’ve always wanted to do.’
