Jodie Connor has said that she has not let herself relax after scoring a number one record with Roll Deep.

The former Pop Idol runner-up co-wrote and sang on 'Good Times', which topped the charts last year.

Asked if the success of the track has let her relax with her own material, Connor told Flavour Magazine: "Definitely not. In fact, I've now raised the bar.

"Having a number one from your first release is just incredible and I never ever dreamed that it would have happened. I may not get a number one myself but I would love to be in that category of a successful artist."

Of being compared to Rihanna and TLC's Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez, she added: "I feel quite honoured that people have placed me in the same categories.

"I am very confident with the music that I've been writing furthermore I believe that I've got some really good tracks behind me. I think in time I will grow and hopefully be selling albums like TLC and how Rihanna does today."
