X Factor winner Louisa Johnson has said she's still in touch with mentor Rita Ora.

Louisa won The X Factor in 2015 with Rita as her mentor in the competition.

And while Rita is no longer part of The X Factor, she is still keeping in contact with Louisa.

She revealed this week: "I'm still in touch with Rita. She's so busy at the moment and she's doing amazing. She gave me so much advice on the show and it's really helped me. We're still in touch now."

This week saw Louisa announce her brand new single Best Behaviour which will drop next month, with the teenager teasing it has a "different sound" to her previous songs.

Louisa told the Daily Mail newspaper: "It's more electronic, but it's still definitely me. I don't just like one style of music, so I didn't want an album where every song sounded the same. I wanted to mix it up."

Reflecting on her first year since winning The X Factor, Louisa went on: "My year's been incredible, I've had so much fun. I've done so much more than I ever thought I would do in my first year. When I performed at Wembley Stadium it was a dream come true.

'I've never wanted to do anything else. Even when I was at school I never wanted to stay out I wanted to come home and do my songs. I don't feel like I'm missing out I'm not one of those people. I just get on with what I want to do and I'm happy."

Louisa's Best Behaviour will be released on March 10 and her album is expected later this year.
