Megan McKenna to make West End debut
Megan McKenna has landed a role in a West End dance show.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star has always longed to see her name in lights after auditioning for both 'Britain's Got Talent' and 'The X Factor' over the years but, after two failed attempts, it seems she's finally getting her chance to shine after she was chosen to star in 'One More Dance' at The Adelphi Theatre in London next month.
Taking to her Instagram account on Monday (21.11.16) night, the brunette beauty wrote: "So excited to be making my first ever West End debut singing in @glebsavchenkoofficial & @krihanoff show @onemoredancelondon on 11th December! To get tickets book here - onemoredance.london (sic)."
'One More Dance' has been put together by former 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional Kristina Rihanoff and 'Dancing With the Stars' hunk Gleb Savchenko as they introduce their fans to a wide spectrum of dance - from traditional ballroom to modern tap jazz and contemporary ballet - for a star-stopping show in the capital.
Kristina reached out to Megan, 24, after she fell in love with her voice when they were appearing alongside one another on 'Celebrity Big Brother' earlier this year.
And it didn't take Megan long to respond to the request as she jumped at the chance to show off her powerful vocals on a big stage alongside two incredible dancers.
She told OK! magazine: "I was absolutely thrilled to be asked by Gleb Savchenko and Kristina Rihanoff to sing in their West End stage show.
"I didn't have to think twice. They are absolutely world class dancers and it was special to hear them tell me how much they love my voice."
'One More Dance', which is being choreographed by Gleb's wife Elena Samodanova, has been a long time in the making and, although she's only just been asked to sing in the show, Kristina knew almost immediately that she wanted Megan.
Megan said: "Kristina first heard me sing when we were both housemates in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house earlier this year and we said then that we hoped to work together someday. I've known Gleb for quite a while too and we have talked about him appearing in a music video with me which I would love to see happen!"
