2010 X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd says she was shocked by her success in the US.

Speaking to the The Sun on Sunday, the 20-year-old Want U Back singer said: "I don't quite know how it all kicked off in America. That was never my plan.

"My thing was always to make it over here [in the UK] because I love my country. Being successful here is what counts for me.

"I went to America with one suitcase, planning to stay for two weeks, and then two years later I was still there!"

Now that she's back in the UK, Cher admits she wants to show people what she can do at home, saying: "My big ambition now is just to come home and let people see who I am, how I've changed and how I've grown up.

"I really want to be a success here. This is where I come from and who I am. I really want to make it work."
