X Factor singer Soheila Clifford has confessed to having a crush on Mel B at judges' houses.

We first met loveable Soheila in the last audition show of this year's series where she performed Ariana Grande's Problem.

Soheila revealed her parents had remortgaged their house TWICE To support her dreams of stardom, and would do it again.

But Soheila has done them proud and scored the first seat in Saturday's Six Chair Challenge.


This weekend the brunette beauty will be seen singing for a spot in the live shows in front of Mel B, Emma Bunton and mentor Simon Cowell.

Speaking about meeting the Spice Girls duo at Simon's house, Soheila - who suggested she'd be "Sassy" spice - said this week: “The Spice Girls are absolutely stunning.

“They’re so diddy though. Mel B looks incredible. She looks fantastic.

“And Emma, she came and gave me a hug. Whatever that material is she was wearing, she was so soft to hug."

Speaking to The Sun Soheila went on to open up about her sexuality to the newspaper, saying she was bisexual.

"A girl’s a girl — a guy’s a guy," said Soheila, who explained she had been with other girls. “People are people. It’s 2016, gender shouldn’t matter.

"You should fall for anybody. Personality is personality. It’s great to be able to fall for anyone.

“It’s just good not to put pressure on anything in life. Just see what happens, see who you meet.”

Let's just hope she wasn't left too distracted by Mel when performing!

The X Factor 2016 airs this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
