Nick Grimshaw has said he didn't realise Rita Ora was as "clueless" as he thought, until they joined this season's X Factor.

Grimmy, who joined Simon Cowell's show last month along with Rita, Simon and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, even likened the singer to former TOWIE star Joey Essex. Who, let's face it, isn't the sharpest tool in the box, bless him.

Speaking to The Sun, Nick jokingly said: "She is like Joey with a good weave."

Rita appaz also asked Grimmy where Tenerife was, when a male contestant on the ITV singing competition started singing in Spanish for his audition.

Nick and Rita got this Rolls-Royce from "uncle" Simon.

"I told her it was in the Caribbean and he's singing in French," he continued.

"When he ended, she was really serious and was like, 'You gave a good performance. When you started singing in French it became better.' Everyone in the arena lost it." Oh Rita.

Hello Rita's boob.

Well one thing's for sure, Rita's definitely got a better chest than Joey. Sorry Joe.

Earlier this week, the 24-year-old posted the picture above on Instagram showed off apart of he chest, revealing her boob for a magazine shoot.

Rita revealed her breast for a recent shoot she did for Glamour magazine.

She shared the snap to her 5 million Insta-followers and captioned it: "Another shot from my Glamour cover out on stands everywhere now! #bodyonme #becomfortableinyourcurves."

We don't think Rita will go and #BreakTheInternet with this one but jheez at least she has nicer hair than Joey.
