X Factor 2011: 'I'm not a singing secretary!' insists Sophie Habibis

Sophie Habibis

X Factor 2011 hopeful Sophie Habibis has hit back at Louis Walsh for calling her a "singing secretary" on tonight's show. Following her performance of 'Bang Bang', Louis said the 19-year-old was "missing something" in her performances.

Gary Barlow unfourntately agreed, telling her: "I’ve got a big problem with you, I love your voice but your song choices are as dull as dishwater.”

Hitting back on Xtra Factor, Sophie said: "Clearly I’m not a secretary, I'm a singer. Obviously this is something I’m still finding my feet on the show, I just... don't know, with Louis I don't know..."

Asked whether she felt disadvantaged by mentor Kelly Rowland not being present this week, including tonight, Sophie replied: "It was hard not having her there but it's something I have to learn to do. If I get further in the competition and in singing I need to learn to do it without my mentor."
