Megan McKenna has enjoyed surprising success with her foray into country music thanks to her first single High Heeled Shoes.

But some fans may think the success has gone to her head as she left Good Morning Britain viewers in complete dismay by comparing herself to Adele.

While discussing whether her Essex accent proved a hurdle in the transition to country singer with hosts Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley, the TOWIE star pointed out that her that her idol Adele isn’t ‘posh’ but is still a global superstar.

‘I used to have elocution lessons when I was growing up, and then it kind of got to the point where I was like, “this is me”, she explained.

‘I mean, look at Adele. She sings and she’s not posh, posh, posh. But she’s absolutely amazing. She’s smashing it. She’s global. I just think why change yourself? I’m going to stay as me.’

Viewers soon flooded Twitter in outrage, brandishing Megan ‘delusional’ for her comparison.

‘She’s actually comparing herself to Adele. Deluded,’ one annoyed viewer wrote.

While another said: ‘She’s actually comparing herself to Adele. Deluded mentalist. #GMB’

‘Megan McKenna has seriously just not compared herself to Adele surely?’ another added, while a fourth agreed: ‘You can’t compare yourself to Adele.’

Megan also discussed how her Essex accent opened her up to bullies during her time at theatre school.

‘I grew up in theatre school in west London and I was the odd one out,’ she admitted.

‘They always used to say to me “Oh, you sound really chavvy” and I was like “I can’t help it! It’s just where I’ve grown up”.

‘I don’t really know why we have a bad name because I think we’re quite classy.’

Meanwhile, Megan has decided to cut her screen time on TOWIE so she can dedicate more time to chasing her dream of country music success.

A representative for Megan told Metro.co.uk: ‘Megan has decided to reduce her TOWIE filming hours because of her increasing commitments to music’.

It is also thought that there will be no major story lines for Megan in the show, following her recent split from boyfriend Pete Wicks.
