Alexis Jordan's first ever song was based on "love notes" she wrote for boys at school.

The 'Hush Hush' hitmaker - who shot to fame after appearing on the first series of 'America's Got Talent' in 2006 - explained she has been writing songs at an early age, when her favourite subject was boys in her class at school.

She said: "I started writing when I was about nine. It was a love song, you write notes to the boys in class and you switch notes and the teachers catch you - stuff like that."

The 19-year-old singer admitted after being "hungry" for fame from a young age, she isn't taking her success in the music industry for granted.

Alexis added to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle newspaper: "Looking back I am the same now as I always was, just wanting my dreams to happen. I'm really grateful to be doing it.

"When I was younger I was so hungry for it and I still am. I am the kind of person who keeps it close to their heart that this isn't a joke - this is my life."
