X Factor hopeful Chloe-Jasmine Whichello has admitted that she isn't the best singer, despite being picked by Cheryl Fernandez-Versini for her final six.

Controversial contestant Chloe landed a place at Judges' Houses at the eleventh hour on Friday night (26 September) after Cheryl made a last minute decision to switch her with Orla Keogh.

The Geordie star's decision did not go down brilliantly with the audience, although she did get some cheers, and now even jazz singer Chloe has admitted her vocals aren't as good as others'.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, 24-year-old Chloe said: "I'm not the best singer in the competition, I know that. This is all new to me.

"I am not particularly confident with my ability at singing."

Chloe in 2006

This isn't the first time blonde hopeful has appeared on The X Factor. Back in 2006, Chloe auditioned for Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne but failed to make it past the first round.

At the time, Chloe was just 16 years old and, wearing a pink cowboy hat, performed a medley and compared herself to Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys.

Simon then frankly told her: "It's like you've been bred in a laboratory as some music creation. You represent millions of 16-year-old people in this country today who just want to be famous like that." Once she had left the room, he branded her "every parent's worst nightmare".

Speaking about that audition, Chloe explained to the Sunday tabloid that she "didn't know what the hell" she was doing back then.

Meanwhile, eagle-eyed TV fans may have spotted the singer elsewhere too. In 2013, Chloe tried her luck on Naomi Campbell's modelling show The Face.
