Q&A: X Factor's Misha B

The X Factor star is not just a talented musician, she’s also represented the Reds…

When and how did you become a United fan?
I’ve followed the team since I was little. I was pretty much born into it as all my family are Reds.

What’s your earliest memory?
Watching players like David Beckham, Andy Cole and Ryan Giggs. I actually met Beckham and Giggs when I was younger - I was totally star-struck and could barely speak. I just remember grinning widely!

Who’s your United hero?
Growing up it was always Beckham. I was devastated when he left.

Do you remember your first United game?
It was actually at Maine Road for the Manchester derby. I sat in the away end and I remember it being very lively! I can’t remember exactly when it was or what the score was but we won.

Tell us more about your experience of playing for United…
It was great. I played for the club for about eight months for the Under 16s at The Cliff. Me and one of my best friends used to play at school and I got invited to a trial at United and I got picked. I was a striker but Beckham was my inspiration. It was just a brilliant experience to be involved with the club and also to be able to see some of the players at the training ground.

How often do you get to games nowadays?
I haven’t been to a match for a few years but I’m hoping to fit one in this season. I watch all of the games on TV when I’m travelling and working though.

Who do you admire in the current team?
I’m biased because I used to go to school with him, but it has to be Danny Welbeck. He’s a great guy and it’s brilliant to see him doing so well for United and England.
