‘X Factor’s Jack Walton on Mel B: ‘Apparently she is a big deal’

By Sam Rigby

Eliminated X Factor finalist Jack Walton has criticised his mentor Mel B for not listening to him.

The 18-year-old singer – who was kicked off the ITV show on Saturday (November 1) – said it was “hard to pipe up” in front of her.

Speaking to Metro, Walton explained: “I spoke to her about not feeling comfortable with some of the stuff I was doing. But I am just a lad from Castleford and she is a Spice Girl.

“I don’t know much about her, to be honest. But apparently she is a big deal. It’s hard to pipe up in front of someone like that.”

He added that fans should know that The X Factor didn’t show off the type of music he would perform at one of his own concerts.

“I want everyone to know what people saw on X Factor was not anything what you would see at a gig. I enjoyed the show, it were amazing. But don’t expect Eye of the Tiger at a gig. It’s not going to happen,” he said.

Walton recently admitted that he got “a lot of stick” after his mother came out as gay – read more here.
