ita Ora can't choose between "X Factor" and "The Voice".

The 27-year-old singer has worked as a coach on "The Voice UK" and a judge on "The X Factor" and when asked by an aspiring singer which one she would recommend, Rita admitted she was torn.

Writing in The Guardian's advice column, she said: "Oh God! I've had the privilege of working on both. I love them equally. My heart would say "The Voice" but my head would say "The X Factor". It's important to remember that, although they're great platforms, you don't need to go on a show to become a pop star. You can graft and do it the old-school way. If you have a dream, then 100 per cent go for it. You're probably going to be hurt a lot of times, like I have been, like every pop star in the industry has been. You have to have very thick skin. Richard Branson said: "You can't have a Plan B." If you're gonna do something, you have to really commit."

Rita previously quit "The Voice UK" in 2015 in order to join the judging panel of "The X Factor" and she went on to win the show with her act Louisa Johnson.

However, she quit after just one series, tweeting: "I had a ball on @TheXFactor last year and will miss the team.
