X Factor hopeful Chloe-Jasmine Whichello has hit back at critics who she believes will not vote because of her accent.

Chloe, 24, has been accused of being "posh" because of the way she speaks, however she has insisted to mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini she is just a "normal girl".

Speaking ahead of her first live performance this weekend, Chloe blasted: "I said to Cheryl, 'I'm just a normal girl' and it's really rude of people to think I'm not worth voting for just because of the way I speak.

"If I was from Essex, what would people say?"

Chloe and her jazz singing style means she is a slightly controversial contestant in this year's series, however Cheryl has admitted she is "fascinated" by her.

Even when Cheryl told her she was through to the lives, Chloe herself gasped: "Why?!"

Reflecting on Cheryl's decision, Chloe said: "It felt amazing, but at the same time I felt sad for the other girls.

"I knew that would happen obviously, but the reality is different. I feel a bit numb. I'm really, really grateful. I'm really shocked somebody could believe in me that much."

West Londoner Chloe, who also auditioned for The X Factor in 2006, said her ideal duet partner on the show would be Madonna.

Good luck with that, Chlo!
