Andrea Faustini is ''nervous'' about his debut album.

The former 'The X Factor' contestant released his first collection, 'Kelly', last Friday (17.07.15) and while he said he didn't have any ''expectations'' for the LP, he admitted he has nerves about how it will be received.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I just imagine myself as a singer, it's really the first time I'm releasing an album so I don't really have any expectations, I just hope people like my album.

''I'm starting to be a little bit nervous, I'm just very excited about everything, it's been a wonderful experience, even if I'm a little bit nervous, I'm very happy''

The 21-year-old star - who finished in third place on the ITV reality show in December before being snapped up by RCA Records - was speaking following a performance on the world's biggest shopping channel, QVC, on Monday (20.07.15), during which he sang tracks including his new single 'Give a Little Love' which he co-wrote.

Explaining the influences on the record - which is now available to buy from, he said: ''I grew up listening to Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake so it is a pop album which has some gospel and R&B influences. I actually co-wrote the first single so I'm happy.''
