Fleur East: 'Cheryl Has Believed In Me Right From The Beginning'
The X Factor finalist caught the eye of one judge in particular straight from day one...
Fleur East has made the final three on this year's X Factor, but you may be surprised to hear that she had to win round her mentor Simon Cowell, despite having support from Cheryl right from the start.
The singer revealed to MTV that the I Don't Care singer has always got her back, saying: "Cheryl was the only judge right from the beginning that believed in me."
"Right from my first audition that didn't go so well, Simon I had to try and convince, he wasn't too keen in the beginning," she added.
We also asked what it feels like to be in the final: "I'm literally on top of the world right now, I never expected to get this far," Fleur revealed. "To say that I'm in the final three of this competition is just unbelievable."
