X Factor star Leona Lewis has said that One Direction should embrace their new-found fame.
The 27-year-old won the competition in 2006 and went on to reach number one in the US with her debut album Spirit.
Leona has revealed that she has been in contact with the boyband who have been enjoying a similar level of success.
Lewis told the Daily Mirror: "They're having a lot of fun.
"I give them a little bit of advice sometimes. I tell them to enjoy it.'
Despite One Direction having a huge female following, Leona insists that she is not attracted to any of the lads.
Band member Liam Payne once admitted to having a crush of Leona, before he began dating Danielle Peazer.
Leona said: "He's sweet, but they're, like, two."
