The winner of Walk The Line, Nadiah Adu-Gyamfi, has spoken out against claims that her victory was a ‘fix’ after previously being signed, explaining that she is ‘starting afresh’.

Last week, the singer was crowned the victor of Simon Cowell’s new ITV show, which is presented by Maya Jama and stars judges Gary Barlow, Craig David, Alesha Dixon and Dawn French.

‘I’ve grown a lot t.fore I am grateful this show has given me the opportunity to show people who I really am and start afresh simply as Nadiah,’ she added.
