#WomanCrushWednesday: Megan McKenna

MMcK5 Edit

It’s been a while since I’ve had a Woman Crush Wednesday, and I thought it would be fitting to have someone who has sincerely won my heart. The beautiful, albeit slightly terrifying Megan McKenna!

I watched the first series of Ex on the Beach when it was first on, and I thought it was good TV. Trashy, entertaining, but altogether a bit forgettable. So I never actually saw her debut in series 3. My first encounter with Megan McKenna was her stint on Celebrity Big Brother.

At first, I thought she was just another random hot girl who was going to be a bitch, but by the end of her 18 day stay in the Big Bro house, I was gutted that she was evicted! To most she’s just a ditsy, reality TV/glamour model who knows how to throw a tantrum, but she’s so much more than that!


Yes, she can be feisty, but all the times she ‘kicked off’ in the house were completely justified and I probably would have reached a breaking point similar to hers (although I don’t think I would have been quite as full on!). She’s a strong woman who knows how to stand up for herself when she needs to (or when she’s drunk!). She also seemed incredibly genuine and grounded, just a nice, normal girl with good values. It’s nice to see someone be so real in a situation that can often bring on a heightened sense of reality. Not to mention the fact she is stunning, especially after the launch night where she was all made up with big hair, full face of make-up and tanned like a brown leather sofa. She looks beautiful with her hair up in a bun and little to no make up on.

After she was evicted, my sister and I started watching Ex on the Beach, eagerly awaiting series 3 to have our Megan McKenna fix! And once again, she does not disappoint! Her choice in men may have been questionable, and she may have been a bit rowdier than her CBB appearance, but it made me love her even more! She reminds me of the friends I made in uni, who I had to pull out of drunken fights that had started for no reason (that was when they weren’t doing the same for me!).

I’m just finishing up series 3 and I’m so excited to know she’ll be back for series 4!

  1. I liked Megan on CBB, she was aggressive but with good reason and I was always impressed she didn’t cry! Usually having a temper tantrum like that would lead to tears but she was just DAMN ANGRY and I liked her for it!

      1. Exactly! You are both dapper, dashing young men 🙂 have you enrolled on an art class yet? 😉

        I must like a ‘bit of rough’ though, he’s too posh in real life – I like the council estate Eggsy from the movie haha.

      1. I can’t help it, it’s just like this….reaction! I don’t feel sad I just feel angry / frustrated, my voice cracks and holy sh*t a tear comes out lol.

        I’ve never see Ex on the Beach but this is only due to not having Sky. I am a big lover of tacky TV!


      2. She did give some good entertainment though to be fair! Though her ‘jostles’ under the sheets with Jez made me feel sick. I think Tiff was my favourite, though still pleased to see Scotty T win 🙂

      3. Yeah Tiff was hilarious and that ‘David is dead’ confusion was hilarious, even though it was a bit tasteless. I really wanted Megan to stay in a bit longer, but agree that Scotty T was the obvious winner.

      4. OH MY GOD that was so funny!!!! Only for pure slapstick reasons I don’t mean any disrespect but it was funny. And when they were all pulling the covers off David Guest asleep!! I can still quote some of things she said even now, she cracked me up with her sex talk!

        I wanted to Megan to stay too, I felt sorry for her as I knew she didn’t have a big fan base but she was alright!
