Megan McKenna is single and ready to mingle after splitting from businessman boyfriend Josh Riley.

The former TOWIE star, who is currently working on an album after winning The X Factor: Celebrity last year, has reportedly signed up to celebrity dating app Raya in the hopes of finding a new beau.

Other famous faces thought to be looking for love on the exclusive app include Sam Smith, Channing Tatum and Normal People actor Paul Mescal.

IMAGINE if Megan and Paul got together. Stranger things have happened, tbh.

“Megan recently signed up to Raya and her profile is pretty eye-catching,” a source told The Sun.

“She’s got a romantic song as her tune and some sexy pics of her on the profile. It won’t be long until she’s off the market by the look of what she’s putting out there.”

The reality star turned singer bagged a record deal with Simon Cowell’s Syco label following her triumphant stint on The X Factor: Celebrity but it was claimed last month that she’d been left in the lurch by the music mogul after he decided to walk away from the business.

Syco Music appears to have collapsed following Simon’s departure, throwing a spanner in the works for Megan’s burgeoning music career, but she needn’t worry too much as labels are reportedly fighting over themselves to snap her up.

A source told The Sun, “It’s a dream situation. Simon said he can call her whenever she wants and will always be at the end of the phone.

"Megan’s happy as it means she can choose where she wants to go and isn’t tied down.”
