Megan McKenna reveals her lip fillers prevented her from being taken seriously.
Megan McKenna admits she was "embarrassed" by her lip fillers, which were getting in the way of her career as a singer.
She may ooze confidence on the X Factor stage but the reality TV star has revealed that she used to have “a massive problem” with the way she saw herself.
Taking a break from X Factor rehearsals to come into Loose Women, Megan told the panel: “I would be going on to editing apps and still not be happy, thinking 'Oh God, I could make that bit a bit bigger...' Honestly, I had a massive problem.”
She continued: “I did have body dysmorphia, it’s clear.”
The turning point came when she went to Nashville to pursue her singing career but realised her enlarged lips were getting more attention than her voice.
“One day, I just woke up and I was like, what am I doing? And I started looking at myself and I remember flying home, feeling embarrassed [about] what I looked like. And I was like, I need to get them out.”
Thankfully, Megan is happy with her appearance now and has learnt to accept the way she looks.
Well, we think she’s stunning - with a voice to match too!
