Megan McKenna Slammed As 'Deluded' After She Kind Of Compares Herself To Adele
The TOWIE star refuses to change her Essex accent, insisting that Grammy winner Adele isn't 'posh' either.
The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna just received a bit of slack from fans after comparing herself to Grammy award winner Adele (sort of).
Megan's comparison came as she appeared on Good Morning Britain insisting that she won't change her Essex accent for her country music career, pointing out that Adele is successful despite not being 'posh'.

Although the Ex On The Beach babe isn't exactly comparing her singing voice to Adele's, a few viewers thought she was a little 'deluded' for linking herself to the Hello singer.
Megan told the GMB hosts: "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'."
"I mean, look at Adele. She sings and she’s not posh, posh, posh. But she’s absolutely amazing," she continued.
At the end of the day it seems Megan's intention was to praise Adele for staying true to herself and she revealed plans to do the same: "She’s smashing it. She’s global. I just think why change yourself? I’m going to stay as me."
"She's actually comparing herself to Adele. Deluded," wrote one viewer as another said: "Megan McKenna has seriously just not compared herself to Adele surely?"
While some didn't appreciate her mentioning the superstar, plenty also jumped to her defence, with one person tweeting: "People need a life. @Megan_Mckenna_ didn't say she's like @Adele she just used her as an example. Huge difference."
"@Megan_Mckenna_ didn't compare herself to @Adele but praising her instead," pointed out another Twitter user.
To be honest we have to agree that she was only commending Adele for keeping that London accent we all know and love, no other comparison intended.
