Megan McKenna to quit TOWIE for music

Megan McKenna has hinted she would quit "The Only Way is Essex" for her music career.

The 24-year-old beauty recently topped the iTunes chart with her debut country single "High Heeled Shoes" and though she insists she can currently juggle her passion with life on the reality TV show, she's vowed her music will always come first.

Asked if she'd leave "TOWIE" for music, she told OK! magazine: "At the moment I can juggle both. I have other businesses that I've managed to juggle for so long, but music will always be my number one."

And Megan's music is going to be keeping her busy for the forseeable future.

She said: "I want to tour, but I want to release more music first and get some good tracks out there."

The brunette star - who has reconciled with boyfriend and co-star Pete Wicks - is amazed at how well her debut single did, especially as it knocked Taylor Swift off the top spot.

She said: "I can't believe it. It still doesn't feel real. I didn't expect it to do as well as it did - I thought people might be a little bit wary of me, but it's amazing.

"To even be in the same category as Taylor Swift is amazing. Being in the iTunes top 10 with her is a dream come true. I've always looked up to her."

Megan felt like she was "in a movie" when she shot the video for her single.

She gushed: "I wanted to do something a bit different so it's set in the olden times. It's going to be weird for people to see me dressed differently. It's country and Western themed and it's about how guys don't understand the dramas girls go through in life. It was so much fun to make.

"I wasn't dressed as my usual self. When I was performing the song I thought, Wow - I actually feel like I'm in a movie."
