The 24-year-old reality star is trying to break into the country music industry, and the brunette beauty has been receiving assistance about the business by the 'The X Factor' judge, who has looked after the likes of Westlife, Boyzone and Union J.

Speaking about her career and the words of wisdom she has received from the Irish mogul to The Sun Online, the 'Only Way is Essex' star said: "Louis Walsh and I talk a lot about my music."

And the 65-year-old businessman is "really happy" with Megan's career so far.

She added: "And he's really happy with how it's going."

But Louis is not the only producer she has been in talks with about her future.

She said: "I mean I've speaking to a lot of songwriters and producers.

"I thought it was quite cool that Now Music you know who do all the albums as they tweeted 'do you think Megan could make it as a country star?' It was so cool."

The Mouthy By Megan McKenna founder - who launched her make-up line earlier this year - can currently be seen in her own show 'There's Something About Megan', which follows her on her journey to forge a successful career as a country singer, and the star has revealed Louis was the one who encouraged her to do the programme.

Speaking about her latest project, she said: "Basically he actually was one of the people who said to me ages ago that I should go to Nashville and do a show."

Megan competed on 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2009 before appearing on 'The X Factor' one year later, and although she was unsuccessful on both talent shows she would "love" to be involved in the ITV talent competition in the future.

She said: "I'd love to get involved in 'X Factor', maybe - never say never. You never know what's coming round the corner."
