Talk us through your make-up routine! Are you a high-street or a high-end girl at heart?

I always take off my make-up before going to bed and I love to use a lot of Kiehl's facial cream!

You do a lot of performing and travelling - what are your essential items?

Bose Noise Cancelling headphones and my Nike Air Max! Both are perfect for long journeys. I'm focussing on my music at the moment but I'd really love to do a collaboration with a trainer brand one day. Also, I wouldn't survive festivals without my Hunter boots and my Raybans.

You're the queen of ombre curls! What products do you swear by and is there one person in particular you trust with your hair?

I always tend to use Aveda products on my hair. And both of my hair stylists Yasmina and Rachel are really really important to me!

You recently became the face of Emporio Armani Diamonds. How does it feel to follow in Beyonce's footsteps?

I'm incredibly flattered. A lot of people ask me if it's daunting but to have Mr. Armani pick me himself was a HUGE compliment!

Why did you decide to team up with First Great Western?

I liked the idea of giving festival goers something a bit quirky. When I was studying at boarding school i used to use First Great Western ALL the time and I'm going to a lot of festivals this year. I'm really looking forward to seeing Pharrell and Paloma Faith.

You're constantly on stage or appearing on our screens! Have you had any fashion faux pas' or are there any outfits you regret wearing?

At one of my headline shows at Shepherd's Bush Empire, my one off catsuit ripped in the middle of a song! I managed to cover myself though, so it was all good!

Your debut album lands this August - what tracks are you most proud of and why?

Even If is my favourite. For anyone that hasn't heard the song, it's an incredibly vulnerable subject that relates to peoples every day lives. The song is very personal to me and I hope everyone likes it as much as I do.
