Louisa Johnson’s X Factor journey

Many big names were watching the young singer, who was mentored by judge Rita Ora, as she triumphed on the show and her win certainly sparked a HUGE reaction from these showbiz fans.

Mark Wright was totally blown away by Louisa following her staggering finale performance, calling it ‘unreal’ on Twitter:

Former TOWIE star Mark wasn’t the only reality TV face to praise Louisa for her romp to X Factor glory.

Others including Geordie Shore’s Gary Beadle called her ‘insane’ (in a good way, obvs) whilst Made In Chelsea’s Oliver Proudlock spurred her on too.

High praise indeed! X Factor stars of the past are definitely backing Ms Johnson for big things.

One even confessed to harbouring a bit of a crush on her. Step forward 2013 contestant Luke Friend
