X Factor 2014: Cheryl Cole impersonator Abby Eades makes bootcamp

Abby Eades

Cheryl Cole impersonator Abby Eades has won her way through to The X Factor 2014 bootcamp.

In scenes not shown in the main ITV programme, 17-year-old Abbey originally wowed the panel back at the room auditions, where she sung Bounty by Christina Aguilera.

Abby told cameras: "I'm in Girls Aloud tribute, I love being Cheryl... First I was Nicola, then I was Kimberley."

Simon reacted back at Abby's first audition: "Wow, you can sing!" in a what Cheryl seemed to take as a bit of a swipe.

Speaking ahead of her performance at Wembley, Abby said: "Since my room audition I've been practicing every day, doing routines, I'm actually doing a Cheryl routine."

On stage, Abby performed Rita Ora's I Will Never Let You Down with some of Cheryl's dance moves.

After Abby's audition was stopped by Simon Cowell, Cheryl said: "I'm very flattered [But] I think you need to focus on you and who you want to be."

Simon suggested that Abby's work in the Girls Aloud tribute was the reason for her career not going where she wanted and added: "I like you."

Mel B said: "I didn't like the dancing, I liked the routine but not when you did it.

"...I think you've got the groundwork for something quite good."

With four yeses, Abby Eades is in bootcamp!

X Factor 2014 continues on Friday on ITV with the start of bootcamp.
