X Factor news: Leona Lewis tells finalists to not get big headed

Leona Lewis 2 (X Factor 2012)

Former X Factor champ Leona Lewis has been offering her tips for this year's finalists, telling them not to get too big headed!

Leona won the show back in 2006, and six years on is preparing to release her third studio album.

Speaking to We Love Pop magazine, out this week, Leona said: “I remember after I sang the song Summertime one of the judges said, ‘Everything’s going to change for you from this moment’."

She continued: “That was definitely a huge compliment, but ‘never believe the hype’ is one thing someone said to me as well.

“It’s so true. Don’t get a big head. There’s nothing worse than an ego.”

Leona's new album Glassheart is out now, featuring new single Trouble.
