X Factor's Louisa Johnson has been getting some secret mentoring tips from Cheryl.

The former X Factor judge didn't mentor Louisa on the show but has been advising the 2015 champ on her career.

And it's not just Cheryl that Louisa has been getting tips on the showbiz industry from, with actress Helen Mirren also offering Louisa her support.

"Seeing the likes of Cheryl and Helen Mirren and a few other people - that's been so much fun," Louisa revealed. "It's been amazing to spend time with them, learn from them and get to know them.

"The main advice I have been given is just to stick to what you believe in and just be yourself."

While Louisa has yet to release her debut album she's big long term ambitions, telling the Daily Mail newspaper: "In five years I'd love to be doing arena tours and stuff like that, that's my main goal. I'm nowhere near where I want to be yet.

"I know I've done a lot - it sounds quite strange to say - but I wasn't in this for the short game, I'm in it for the long run."

One of the first steps on the way to that arena tour is Louisa's new single Best Behaviour, which is out to download and stream now.

"Best Behaviour kind of felt right, it got pitched to us after So Good," Louisa said of her fourth single. "It felt a bit more fun and cheeky - a bit more flirtatious.

"I took a step back and thought about how I wanted to portray myself."
