Megan began her journey to singing stardom when she auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 with a pal and made it to the semi-final and now she’s released her first single, High Heeled Shoes.

TOWIE’S Megan McKenna plans to date someone “more famous” than Pete Wicks following the news the pair have dramatically split for the second time.

The aspiring country singer, 25, ditched Pete this week – less than four months after rekindling their romance – and it seems Megan’s plan for superstardom will chime with her love life from now on.

Reality TV beauty and restaurateur Megan kicked off her music career this summer, filming her own TV show There’s Something About Megan while in the States.

And now – having split with 28-year-old Essex “Pirate” Pete for the second time after their April break-up – the talented vocalist craves a man who isn’t going to be “intimidated” by her imminent stardom.

A source told The Sun Online: “Megan isn’t even thinking about dating right now, but she knows that when she does move on from Pete, she needs to date someone as famous as her – or more famous – who understands the pressures of her career, plus the fact she’ll be flying all over the place as her music career takes off.

“She needs someone who’s not intimidated by her success.”

Megan – who wowed gig-goers at a London concert recently – has always been clear music is her one true love and she intends to go all the way to the top with her “hobby”.

She told us: “What people don’t know is that I’ve been making music myself for years as a hobby. I’ve been working with a lot of different producers and recording things.

“I’ve never really had a chance to talk about it before. Because I’m a reality star people don’t think I’m so passionate about it and don’t take me seriously but this is all I’ve ever wanted to do.”

Clearly some attachment to Pete remains, though, as the first pictures of her out and about since the split, Megan was carrying a designer bag that he gave her as a birthday gift last month.

It’s thought the rows behind this fresh split stem from the reveal Pete was sexting his ex Jacqui Ryland during their romance.

In June they went to Las Vegas together to mend their relationship and then, when returning to the current series of Towie, made their renewed love official.

But now things have fallen apart once more, with a Towie insider spilling: “Megan and Pete have given their relationship everything – but it still hasn’t been enough.

“After an amazing start they have been arguing a lot again and neither of them can handle the stress and pressure of constant rows.

“They are constantly falling out – there’s no guarantee that they won’t rekindle again.”
