It’s always fun looking at a throwback photo of a (now) polished celebrity, isn’t it?

But it’s even MORE fun to watch a throwback video.

Particularly when it’s of them singing a tune from a West End musical to Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, and Piers Morgan.

Yup, while Megan McKenna might be better known for taking part in the shows like TOWIE, Ex On The Beach, and Celebrity Big Brother, she was, once upon a time, just another teenage girl with dreams of becoming a famous singer.

Which is how she wound up on Britain’s Got Talent waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2009, aged just 16 and dressed in a brightly-coloured tutu.

She was joined by her best school pal, Demi, and together as Harmony, they showcased their vocal range with a rendition of ‘What Is This Feeling?’ from Wicked.

Check out their audition for yourself below:

They were actually pretty good, weren’t they?

The schoolgirls wound up making it all the way through to the live semi-finals - but, tragically, didn’t manage to win that coveted spot on the Royal Variety Show.

However you can’t say that Megan hasn’t found success since then - although there’s no denying she looks VERY different from that fresh-faced little songstress we met all those years ago.

When her time on BGT came to light in 2016, it sparked rumours that Megan had undergone a series of secret plastic surgery procedures.

However, speaking to Now, Megan was quick to slam rumours of a nose job - although she DID admit to having fillers in her lips.

She said, “I can say the only thing I’ve had done is my lips.

“That’s a no to that. F--- off; I’d like a nose job though! It’s too big. When I take a selfie it always shows this bump. It’s fine though, [the tweets are] making me even more insecure about my nose.”

She added, “Britain’s Got Talent was amazing, I’m really glad I went on there. I was only 16 and ended up on the live shows!”

We guess this is the ultimate throwback, eh?
