Megan McKenna admits she “regrets” getting intimate on television
Megan McKenna has admitted getting intimate on Ex On The Beach is one of her biggest TV regrets.
The TOWIE star originally rose to fame in 2015 after appearing on the MTV reality show Ex On The Beach – the series that chucks a bunch of singletons together on a tropical island and invites their former flames along to ruin the holiday.
Megan has now revealed how she wishes she hadn’t let things get so steamy with her ex-fiance Jordan Davies. She said: “I have a few regrets on Ex on the Beach. I did get a bit intimate with one of my boyfriends on there. I wish I didn’t.”
The reality star also described how she didn’t realise she was going on the programme until the last minute, as she thought she had been selected for another MTV dating show: Are You The One?
She explained: “Do you know what, I actually loved it. I went to Mexico for a month for free, I was buzzing. But it was very stressful. To be honest, I didn’t actually know that I was going on Ex on the Beach. When I first got it they said it’s a new dating show. I thought it must be that program, Are You The One?
“Even up to the last minute I got to the airport, you have to hand your phones over. It’s very secretive. No-one knows this part. I was actually lying in my hotel room the night before I went in and ‘Ex on the Beach’ came on telly. I was watching the clips of how they’ve done it and was like ‘I’ve filmed that!'”
Speaking about her time in the Celebrity Big Brother house, Megan told ‘BUILD’: “I loved it. Apart from the time they did starve me a little bit when we were puppets. I was really hungry and I get hangry [hungry and angry], bad. Because I’d had two days of eating puppet food, when we got the alcohol I was like oh my god, I’m gonna down the alcohol.”
“So I think it kind of hit me. I got really drunk and had a bit of a meltdown. Do you know what, I actually didn’t remember most of it and when I woke up the next morning they had to say back what I’d said and what times I’d said it, because I said ‘I don’t believe that’.”
The Only Way Is Essex series 20 finale airs tonight (Wednesday) at 10pm.
