Well doesn’t Megan McKenna look ruddy chuffed as the star emerged following her amazing X Factor: Celebrity win on Saturday night.
The Towie star took out the inaugural series of the celebrity-focused talent show, and now with a record deal with Simon Cowell’s SyCo label under her belt, she’s set to take on the world.
And doesn’t she know it.
Megan, 27, looked beside herself with glee as she emerged from the TV studios last night in the same resplendent burgundy suit she sang on stage in.
Posing for the cameras, she sported a massive grin across her face.
She later changed into a white ensemble for the post-show party, flashing peace signs and celebratory fist pumps.
Last night the star was crowned the winner of the talent programme after an epic final show, taking to the stage to perform It Must Have Been Love.
Max and Harvey, V5, Megan, and Jenny Ryan battled it out in the grand finale after a testing few weeks in the competition.
Visibly ecstatic after her win, Megan said: ‘Thank you so much…I’m living my dream and I can’t even explain how excited I am! Just thank you!’
Taking to social media following her triumph, she echoed the same sentiments, as she wrote: ‘OHHHHH MYYYYY GODDDDD my dream has come true I’ve worked my whole life for this moment thank you so much to everybody who voted words cannot explain how I feel right now I cannot believe I have won @thexfactor !!!!!!!!!’
You better believe it, McKenna!
Seems she’s happy to head in a new direction and take the music world by storm under the wing of Simon, after admitting she was never happy in the world of reality TV.
Speaking about her former Towie days and what she would like to do beyond the final, Megan told Metro.co.uk: ‘I think with all of that, I have not changed at all I have just grown up.
‘I wasn’t happy when I was doing reality shows and it was difficult to be happy on camera but now I am doing what I love and people are seeing the real me, but no one has had the chance to see that.
‘I would hope after the show that I get a recording contract and I would love to support someone on tour and build my fan base, even if I don’t win I will still be aiming for that. I think what I have learned throughout this whole process is to not be too hard on myself and to accept things for what they are.
‘If I don’t like how I have sang something I will just go over and over it, but I need to give myself some credit.’
