Rebecca Ferguson: "I needed to write this album"

Having spent most of the year out of the limelight, we track down the lovely Rebecca Ferguson for a chat about her debut album Heaven…

Barely a week has passed this year without Matt Cardle, Cher Lloyd, or One Direction being in the news for some reason or other. Let's not forget there was another finalist in the last series of X Factor, though. Her name was Rebecca Ferguson and she was rather good.

She's been out of the limelight because she's been busy writing her debut album, Heaven, which is out on December 5. Yes, writing. The whole thing.

And anyway, she's not especially keen on red carpets, showbiz parties and all that malarkey.

Now isn't that refreshing? Oh, and the album's pretty darned good too.

Off camera nugget:
We were actually a little nervous about meeting Rebecca. She'd seemed so genuine on X Factor that we thought it might just be too good to be true.

All our fears were quashed though when, greeting us with a grin matched for broadness only by her Scouse accent, she asked, "Have yous come far?"

Don't let success change you, Rebecca!
