She”s still a relative newcomer herself, and Rita Ora admitted to be feeling the nerves when she joined the UK X Factor team in looking for a new star.

She joined more experienced members of the panel – Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos, who won last year with her girl group Little Mix.

“I”m here… I can”t breathe!” Rita wrote on Twitter.

X Factor… I”m just like you, remember that. I”ve just started too, I”m here to help!”
