Megan McKenna has shared an update on how she’s doing following the tragic death of her ex boyfriend Mike Thalassitis in March.
The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna stayed silent for weeks following the death of her ex-boyfriend Mike Thalassitis last month, explaining she was in “complete shock” in a statement before she jetted to Nashville to work on her new album.
But in an interview on Loose Women the 26 year old revealed she’s “doing okay” after flying to her “happy place” Nashville to focus on her work.
She told the panel: “I’m doing okay, thank you for asking. I have actually just come back from Nashville because I’ve been out there, I’ve been putting everything into my work, focusing on my work and writing music.
“I feel like Nashville is my happy place and I am feeling good.”
Megan explained songwriting has been helpful through the grieving process as she finds writing music “like writing a diary”.
She continued: “Writing music actually is like therapy for me, because it’s like writing everything down in a diary and it’s definitely a way of getting all my emotions and feelings down on paper.”
The reality TV star’s appearance is her first interview since the devastating news of Mike’s death last month.
