Louisa Johnson has admitted she wasn't keen on her X Factor winner's song.

The teenager was given a cover of Forever Young by Bob Dylan as her first single in December of 2015.

While the original track is a brilliant song, it wasn't exactly a great choice for Louisa - or any of the other finalists, for that matter.

In the charts, Louisa's cover peaked at Number 9 and was the first ever winner's single not to reach Number 1.

Although that was actually better than Louisa expected.

She confessed: “I didn’t really gel with it that much — everyone knows it wasn’t the best song. I didn’t really like it, but it was just one of those things.

“It got to a higher spot than I thought it was going to get.”

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Louisa revealed her debut album would be completely different and show off her real self.

Louisa explained: “There’s definitely a few raunchier songs on the album, but there is stuff for everyone, which I think is really important.

“None of it’s fake, it’s all very much real. It’s all how I feel, how I act and what I do, but I didn’t get to show that side on The X Factor because it’s a competition and I wanted to get through each week.”

Louisa's debut record will be out "soon".
