How did you find your experience appearing on The X Factor?
Appearing on The X Factor has always been a massive dream of mine and the fact I got to experience the incredible journey was amazing. The X Factor is such a life changing experience, whilst getting to meet and work with the most incredible team who help you grow as an individual artist.
What was the best piece of advice given to you whilst doing the show/What have you learnt?
Straight away I learnt with the show to always be yourself. Don't be afraid to show the real you and always makes sure you are happy and confident with the choices being made around you. The whole team you work with want to hear your opinions and want you to enjoy every second of the experience.
Do you miss your mentor/have you been in touch with them?
Having Simon as a mentor was incredible as he really made me feel confident and spent a lot of time with us over the whole period. He made sure we were comfortable and confident and over all happy with everything going on. I am now working and using all the comments and advice he gave to me to keep building myself as an artist.
What have you been up to since the show finished?
Since the show has finished for me it’s being a whirlwind. I've done so many shows and performed all over the country, I performed at my hometown arena alongside John Legend, James Arthur, Craig David etc… I’ve done shows with Ronan Keating, special guest on the Matt Goss tour, Fleur East.
Some of these artists whilst I was on the X Factor show came and gave me advice.
I’ve been practically living in the studio writing and recording original songs with some incredible writers and producers to prepare songs that have my exact sound and style for everyone to hear soon.
What are you looking forward to most about The X Factor Live Tour?
For me I'm so looking forward to reuniting with the other contestants and travelling together performing in arenas all over the country.
I haven't visited some of the places the tour goes to so it'll be incredible that the first time I'm going is to perform at their home town arena. I am so excited for the Newcastle Date on the tour as it’s my home town arena and I know all my family and friends will be in the crowd, plus i can show the other contestants around Newcastle before the show!
What can fans expect to see from you on the tour?
I am so excited to perform my songs on tour and I'm going to have fun with it and enjoy every second. I want to involve the audience as much as possible and just have the most incredible time with everyone! I can't wait to see everyone who has supported me and hopefully I'll get to say hi to them especially in the meet and greets.
What will you be doing once the tour has finished?
When I come off the show I’m straight away back to performing at shows and festivals whilst also working with more writers and producers in the studio co-writing original songs.
