Scar­lett: ‘Si­mon likes me to an­noy him’

The 21 year old has her sights set on star­dom

Heat (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Scar­lett Lee has been a stand­out on The X Fac­tor ever since she first ap­peared on our screens last year. When Sharon Os­bourne de­nied her a place in 2017, we knew it wouldn’t be the last we’d see of her – and she hasn’t dis­ap­pointed this year.

The 21 year old still can’t be­lieve she man­aged it her­self, say­ing, “Some­times you for­get and then you wake up in the bed and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, I’m still ac­tu­ally here.’ It’s crazy, but it’s the best ex­pe­ri­ence any­one could go through.”

While telling us she can’t get enough of the pam­per­ing – “It’s so cool, these peo­ple do celebri­ties’ hair and make-up!” – one of her high­lights has been work­ing with Si­mon Cow­ell. She says, “To be hon­est, I an­noy him so much. We’ve got this weird re­la­tion­ship. I love him to bits and he’s been there for me so much, but I love an­noy­ing him, I’m just be­ing my­self. He likes it when I’m bub­bly and out there.”

Af­ter smash­ing it week af­ter week on the show, Scar­lett is hop­ing to em­u­late a pre­vi­ous win­ner. “When I talk to Si­mon about past X Fac­tor win­ners, he’s very proud of Leona Lewis. Ev­ery time I get up on­stage, I think of her per­for­mances. You can be a win­ner, or even be­come a run­ner-up, and be like her. She just had this thing about her and she re­ally in­spires me. She was so suc­cess­ful.”
