Fleur East loves Reggie 'N' Bollie

Fleur East has a "special place" in her heart for 'The X Factor's Reggie 'N' Bollie.

The 28-year-old star - who came in second place on the singing contest last year - has confessed the duo are the highlight of the show for her every week.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Awards at London's One Mayfair, Fleur said: "I've been watching it from the first episode. I'm obsessed with the show. I love Reggie 'N' Bollie. I'm excited every single week to see them. They're from Ghana, where my mum is from as well, so I've got a special place in my heart for them."

The 'Sax' hitmaker also defended show judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini - who is Reggie 'N' Bollie's mentor - after she was criticised for getting up on stage with them during their performance of Fuse ODG's 'Azonto' last weekend.

She said: "You know what? I thought Cheryl was amazing. People don't understand that dance, the Azonto, is massive. For every Ghanaian watching that show, I bet they never expected they would see Cheryl up on 'The X Factor' doing the Azonto. That is history! She doesn't realise she's made history doing that."
