Louisa Johnson: 'I'll always be friends with Rita'

Louisa Johnson says she and Rita Ora will be firm friends forever.

The pair become close after Rita mentored the 17-year-old singer on 'The X Factor' and Louisa says that the pair have both grown a lot over the course of the competition, which she won on Sunday (13.12.15).

Speaking to style bible Notion magazine, she said: "Do you know what, we've really grown so much together and I feel like we've bonded a lot... It was so nice to share that moment with her.

"I will definitely stay in touch with her."

While Louisa is a big fan of the other judges, Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Nick Grimshaw, she thinks Rita, 25, was the perfect mentor for her.

She said: "I think they all are amazing, like they all know individually what's good for a person. Simon's amazing at what he does and Nick is on radio and that's going to help us promote our songs, Cheryl has been a performer, Rita is a performer, they all have their own individual way of dealing with things. Rita for me, me and Rita really worked well together."

Meanwhile, it is a busy time for Louisa as Amazon has announced that it will host an exclusive show with the 'X Factor' winner next year, followed by a Q&A and a CD signing.

Taking place on 27th January in a top-secret central London location, Amazon customers will receive tickets via a prize draw, with details on how to enter available on the website.
