Simon Cowell reportedly thinks a wannabe model who competed on Sky's model search programme 'The Face' could be set to win the upcoming series of 'The X Factor'
Simon Cowell has tipped a wannabe model to win 'The X Factor'.
The 54-year-old music mogul reportedly thinks Chloe-Jasmine Whichello - who was a finalist on Sky's model search programme 'The Face' - could be in with a chance of winning the ITV talent show after she wowed him and fellow judges Cheryl Cole, Mel B and Louis Walsh during her audition.
An insider revealed: "He thinks she can go all the way."
A source said: "Simon was totally smitten by Chloe-Jasmine from the start. She's a gorgeous girl. He loved her voice and tone. She has a very blues, jazzy kind of style which really made her stand out.
"Simon was grinning like a Cheshire cat all the way through her performances and made it clear afterwards that he thinks she has potential."
Chloe is a self-confessed Sloane - a fashionable upper-class young woman - and wrote a self-titled coffee table book and Simon is said to have been charmed by her entertaining audition.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "You never know what she'll do next. She got laughs by looking like someone's tipsy aunt, stumbling around the stage. When Simon asked her if she had any pets, she said she had a boyfriend who behaved like one because he wasn't house-trained."
However, the 24-year-old beauty - who first auditioned for 'The X Factor' seven years ago - recently confessed she was more interested in maintaining her glamorous lifestyle than pursuing a career in music.
She said previously: "As rock and roll as it would be to live on the side of the road suffering for my art, I would rather not."
