BLACK Cats star Fraizer Campbell says his brother has got the X Factor – and says he taught him all his moves.

The striker’s younger brother Ashford sailed through to the boot camp stage of the hit TV singing contest after wowing the judges and charming the ladies.

Fraizer, 23, told the Echo how he would love to see his sibling progress further in the competition – and joked how Ashford had been inspired by his dancing.

He said: “He’s always been a bit of a performer.

“I think watching my dancing made him think he wanted to be like me, but he didn’t get his singing voice from me. My mam’s a good singer and musician, my dad can sing, and so can Ashford. I’m starting to think I’m in the wrong family.

“I’ve been speaking to him while he’s been going through X Factor and I just told him to relax, have fun, and do what he does best.

“It would be great to see him go further in the competition. He just has to enjoy it.”

Fraizer, who is injured, has also been speaking out on social networking site Twitter.

After Ashford’s audition aired on ITV2, he tweeted his younger brother: “not a bad audition, but I will give you a few tips for boot camp, bro.”

Ashford, 19, was interviewed on ITV 2 by Caroline Flack and former X Factor contestant Olly Murs before his audition in front of the new panel of judges.

He told the pair: “I’m going to be busting some shapes out there”, before demonstrating his moves.

The French and Spanish student then turned his attentions to new judges Kelly Rowland, of Destiny’s Child and N-Dubz’s Tulisa Contostavlos, speaking to them in French and causing female members of the audience to scream with delight.

Singing Justin Timberlake’s Señorita he impressed the girls and fellow judges Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow.

Contostavlos added: “You can sing, you can dance, you’re good looking, you know? We’re here to find a superstar and you’ve got the package.”

All four of the judges voted Ashford through to the boot camp stage of the competition, which sees him one step closer to being crowned X Factor champion 2011.

Fraizer tweeted his followers, saying: “That was my little bro on X Factor. How does everyone think he did?

“If you missed it check out Ashford Campbell on YouTube. I taught him all his moves of course.”
