Big Brother's Sam Kay auditions for The X Factor (and gets through!)

Former Big Brother housemate Sam Kay has auditioned for The X Factor once again.

Last year's 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 this week, Sam tweeted today: "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 two years ago so it's no surprise to learn she's happy that the Girls Aloud star has already 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!"

Sam tweeted this evening that she had got through to the next stage, writing online: "Yeyyyy we gotz through!! "fun fun fun""

Of course this was just the first part of try outs; Sam will have to wait and see if she'll be invited to sing for the new line up of judges later this year.

The X Factor will be back on ITV later this year.
