Celebrity MasterChef fans slam Megan McKenna’s ‘mellow’ claims after CBB tantrum

Celebrity MasterChef fans have shared their doubts over Megan McKenna's claim she is 'mellow' after recalling her raucous reality TV past.

The 28-year-old singer appeared on Monday's episode (August 16) of the BBC One cooking series alongside Loose Women panelist Penny Lancaster, fashion designer Patrick Grant, BGT comedian Nabil Abdul Rashid and legendary broadcaster Melanie Sykes.

On the programme, Megan said: "When I'm out, I like to wine and dine and have a cocktail and have a bit of sushi, I love all that.

"But then when I get home, I love to eat like a big [spaghetti bolognose] and chips."

Following her introduction to viewers, Megan was approached by show judge Gregg Wallace, who revealed he was "really impressed" by her attempt at filleting a fish.

"I like to cook but I'm bad with being under pressure and timings," Megan said.

The discussion then moved on to Megan's "bad reputation" following her appearances on shows such as Celebrity Big Brother, The Only Way Is Essex and Ex on the Beach.

Greg asked: 'Do you have a bad reputation for being a bit scary and getting the hump? The reason I ask is because this is going to be pressurised."

Megan responded: "People think I'm like this crazy person but I'm actually quite a mellow person but obviously, I can stand up for myself so no funny business, yeah."

"Fine," Gregg replied. "Good to know."

Not so convinced were Celebrity MasterChef viewers, who took to Twitter to question whether Megan really was "mellow" as they recalled her infamous reality TV meltdowns.

One viewer wrote: "Mellow Megan McKenna are you sure?"

Another added: "Megan McKenna: I’m actually quite a chilled out person! Megan McKenna’s face whilst saying this: [shouting]."

A third viewer sarcastically quipped: "I'm a mellow person" – Megan McKenna."

Meanwhile, one sceptic responded: "I’m a mellow person'…She’s crazy as hell."

Another viewer concluded: "Ugh…Megan McKenna the Essex gob!"

Following her exit from TOWIE in 2017, Megan went on to win The X Factor: Celebrity in 2019.

She has since released two albums.
