Megan McKenna's appearance on TOWIE is looking like a permanent fixture, but she tells us that she's still very keen to pursue a music career.

Speaking about joining girlband Lola - which starred ex-TOWIE star Jessica Wright - Megan tells us: "I auditioned for Lola on TOWIE and the girlband was on there. It lasted for about a year but it was an amazing experience and I'm still friends with the girls now."

Ex On The Beach star Megan joined Lola in December 2010. She was a late addition to the group following the departure of founding member Linzi Peel.

But apart from her real life 'girlband', Megan is now focusing on her solo music.

"I will be releasing a single in the summer," she explains. "It's going to be like a club pop track - it's really good. I'm working with some songwriters and producers who have done songs for Ariana Grande.

"Honestly, the vibe of the track is so good. I'm so excited for it and I can't wait for people to hear it. Obviously I'm filming at the moment but I'm still writing and I'm still working with producers, but I will be recording it over the summer period."

For many of us, it was during Celebrity Big Brother's 17th series that we really heard Megan's pretty impressive voice as she stood on stage for David Gest's talent show singing a capella.

But, she has also appeared on two popular talent shows.

As half of singing duo Harmony, Megan auditioned for Britain's Got Talent in 2009. She also auditioned for The X Factor two times in 2013 and 2014.
