Chico believes he was visited by the spirit of Princess Diana (Picture: Getty/Rex)X Factor star Chico has claimed that Princess Diana’s spirit ‘touched him after her death’ and created a ‘Botox-like trauma to his lips’.
The singer, who suffered a stroke last year, made the bizarre confession on radio, where he claimed that Diana, who was killed in a car crash in 1997, left him weeping in his car on the motorway.
‘I thought about her and just something came over me. I don’t know what it was, her spirit almost,’ Chico said on Dan Wootton’s talkRADIO show.

‘Do you know what’s crazy as well? I don’t know what it is but you know people get Botox and things like that in lips? It happened to me naturally.’
‘In that trauma my lips literally looked like I’d had Botox,’ he added.
Chico, who is known for creating jams such as It’s Chico Time, added that the Princess was one of his ‘first loves’ and after her death he wrote a song about her, titled Queen of Hearts.
After suffering ill health last year, the star made his comeback last week and said that he was given the all-clear after his stroke and back to full health.
He then revealed on This Morning he was releasing a charity single to aid the homeless – a cover of He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.
