X Factor's Jade Thirlwall has said she loves being compared to Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole. The Geordie teenager, who won the show with girl group Little Mix last weekend, revealed to the Sunday Mirror how she has been dubbed the 'new Cheryl Cole'!

“People keep telling me I’m the new Cheryl Cole," Jade told the newspaper. “That’s fine by me.

"Cheryl’s an inspiration for all of us. She’s beautiful and so talented. I met her when I auditioned for the show in 2010 and she was amazing. She’s my idol.

“Well, Cheryl and Beyoncé are my idols. I was front row at a Beyoncé gig and she touched my hand once. That was the best moment of my life.”
