X Factor 2012: Tammy Cartwright wants Jahmene Douglas to win!

Jahmene (X Factor 2012)

Former X Factor 2012 hopeful Tammy Cartwright has backed Jahmene Douglas to win the show.

33-year-old Tammy was seen wowing the judges on Saturday night's show, but revealed this week she had quit the programme at bootcamp.

We saw Tammy wow the judges at her audition with a powerful performance of One Night Only by Jennifer Hudson.

“Tammy that was a power house performance. You were born to sing,” Louis Walsh said.

Tulisa added: “I think you are so likeable. You have great stage presence, great song choice and you rocked that stage.”

But Tammy explained to us this week how she quit the series for the sake of her brother.

“The main reason I auditioned was for my brother because he has a drug problem, I wanted him to know anything was possible,” Tammy told us on Monday.

She explained: “Even before I got to bootcamp I started to have reservations about attending, because unfortunately my brother had slipped back into drugs.

“As well as looking after him I was worried if this went any further how every one would perceive him. I wanted him back and wanted him normal. We’re such a happy family apart from this one problem.”

Asked who Tammy was no backing to win the show, the support worker said: "I'll tell you who I really love at the minute, Jahmene. I think he's amazing."
