Diana Vickers has revealed that a host of stars have sent on congratulations following her debut number one on Sunday.
The singer, whose single ‘Once’ stormed yesterday’s UK singles chart, said that she had received best wishes from X Factor judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole, along with fellow former contestants JLS and Ruth Lorenzo.
She told the Daily Record: “I have already had big congratulations from Simon and Cheryl as well as the JLS boys and Ruth Lorenzo, who were in the finals along with me. That was lovely. We are all here for each other as peers, so it’s great.”
Vickers, 18, continued: “Simon is pleased for me. I am grateful to him because he pushed me on the show, and without his enthusiasm and belief I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do this.”
