Former Big Brother housemate Sam Kay is heading for The X Factor again.

The 2015 BBUK contestant previously appeared in front of the judges in 2014 but didn't get through at the arena half of the auditions.


Returning to try out again last year, Sam tweeted back in April: "Got my tiny guns out today for yet again another X factor audition"

She added: "going for a laugh and Cheryl's not there"


Sam had clashed with Cheryl during her short time on The X Factor three years ago so it's no surprise to learn she's happy that the Girls Aloud star had confirmed her exit from the show.

"I could sense it at the time that she just wanted to be famous," Cheryl previously said of Sam. "If you just want to be famous then this is not the show for you, this is hard work. You have to want to be a pop star."

The now former X Factor judge recalled: "She [first] auditioned for us in Edinburgh last year and I just knew it wasn’t real, she was trying to be kooky.

"It’s a shame because some people queue up for days and dream about it for years and years, they get turned away because maybe they were too nervous on the day of auditions previous to seeing us.


"And then there’s someone like her who just wants to be a known person, I do get a little bit annoyed, especially when people get defensive when you’re just trying to talk to them. I’m getting a bit long in the tooth for it!"

However Sam didn't get to sing for the judges for a second time last year.

She wrote on Twitter at the time: "they pulled me and my mate out because I've done big brother and it's not fair to the other contestants as I had an advantage"

Back for another shot, the Daily Star reports that this year show bosses approached Sam to try out.

"For the first time ever ITV bosses approached her to audition again for the show," a source told the newspaper. "It went really well and she made it through to the next round."


Of course it remains to be seen if Sam will actually get onto screen this time around...

The X Factor will air on ITV later this year.
