Rebecca Ferguson on why she did not record a cover song

Rebecca Ferguson has released her first album, Heaven.

Last year's X Factor runner-up has co-written some of the songs on her album with Eg White, who has previously worked with stars including Duffy, Adele and Will Young.

Ms Ferguson told Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire that she did not want to record cover versions because she was aware of the perception X Factor contestants have. She also gave listeners a preview of some tracks from her album.

Victoria Derbyshire broadcasts weekdays 1000 to 1200 on Radio 5 live.
