Megan McKenna has revealed how she was forced to ditch her lip filler to save her blossoming music career.
The former TOWIE star, 27, had tried to make a name for herself as a country singer in Nashville, but critics couldn't take her seriously because of her plumped up pout.
Speaking on Loose Women, Megan, who is currrently appearing on Celebrity X Factor , admitted that she didn't think her music career would ever happen.
She said: "Everything I was doing was being linked back to my mouth.
"I'd be doing shows like this and all the articles would be like 'Megan and her trout pout, big lips.'
"I thought I'm trying so hard to be taken seriously here and this is never gonna happen."
And with stints on TOWIE and Ex On the Beach, Megan found her reality TV past makes people judge her.
She said: "I wouldn't turn back the clock. I've done a lot of growing up over the last few years, mine was all on camera it's a bit embarrassing."
Megan added: "I've been learning so much, especially this year getting rid of my lip fillers.
"I think 'Megan what was you thinking?' I can't deal with my lips, what was I thinking?"
But her past certainly isn't holding her back on Celebrity X Factor as she's one of the favourites to win.
She wowed the judges with a song that she wrote in last week's show, which was about having her heart broken.
Megan explained: "That song for me I wrote literally a few weeks ago and I wanted to put in that… the message in that song is the next thing I go into just to not put my full heart in – just to keep a little back for myself."
It was enough to get her saved by the public and she'll return in this weekend's live show.
