X Factor Celebrity put famous faces through their paces, as they had to sing in front of Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell, as well as panel of music industry experts. As Megan McKenna was one of the contestants to make it through to the live shows, fans were quick to question whether she should have been allowed on the show.
Since leaving The Only Way is Essex, Megan has pursued a career in singing, after she starred in her only reality series There’s Something About Megan, which focused on her travels to Nashville to establish herself as a country artist.
Viewers were left confused as to why Megan needed to be on the programme if as it appeared she had already had success with a career in the music industry.
Fans of the show took to Twitter to express their confusion after she revealed she was performing a song from her upcoming album.
One questioned her appearance on the show: “Hang on, how is Megan McKenna on celebrity X factor? I swear she already has a record label and released music recently, isn’t that cheating?’

Another said: “I thought Megan McKenna has a record contract already didn’t she do a show about it? If so she shouldn’t be on the live shows #CelebrityXFactor”
A third tweeted: “I thought she already had a record deal for her country and western music, must have been dropped by so many, but she was so good.”
“Hasn’t Megan McKenna already got a singing career a record deal?”
