Fleur East: My success still hasn't sunk in

Fleur East "still feels the same" despite her incredible chart success.

The 28-year-old singer was the runner-up on the 2014 series of UK television talent show 'The X Factor' and has since wowed fans with her debut single 'Sax'. But Fleur admits the magnitude of her new found fame has yet to hit her.

She said: "It's weird, but despite everything that's happened I still feel the same. Nothing's sunk in for me. All this craziness is happening around me, but I still feel exactly the same which is really weird."

Fleur's single 'Sax' charted at number 3 in Britain when it was released in November, beaten only by Adele's 'Hello' and Justin Bieber's 'Sorry'. Her album 'Love, Sax and Flashbacks' looks set to be a top seller this Christmas, but Fleur isn't sitting back and relaxing now she has found success.

She added to Disorder magazine: "I'm well busy and it's nice to have the status, but I'm quite hard on myself and I know I have lots of work to do. I feel like I'm just starting out."

The stunning star has become something of a household name thanks to her unique sense of style, incredible figure and energetic dance routines. But Fleur insists she still can't get used to people recognising her.

She laughed: "It's really strange because some times people are like 'oh, hi Fleur!' and I'll assume that they know me from somewhere, like from my area, and then I have to remind myself that it's obviously from the show but yeah I'm still adjusting to that that's strange."
