Leona Lewis has revealed she has been dishing out advice to One Direction.
The 27-year-old, who was speaking at the launch of the Radio1 and 1Xtra Academy earlier this week, told the Daily Record that she has taken her fellow talent show stars under her wing:
“They’re having a lot of fun. I give them a little bit of advice sometimes. I tell them to enjoy it.”
However, the ‘Bleeding Love’ star ruled out any romantic involvement following Liam Payne’s admission that he had a crush on her, adding: “He’s sweet. But they’re, like, two.”
The 2006 X-Factor winner, who recently expressed her fears over the rise of young gangs, also stated that her relationship with Simon Cowell has always been strictly platonic following revelations about his private life in Tom Bower’s recent biography.
She said: “He was never flirty with me at all. He was more like an uncle.”
