Liverpool mum Kayleigh Taylor surprised the judges in more than one way on The X Factor 2017 tonight.

The 27 year-old mum of three told cameras she previously worked in a chip shop because she "likes her food and the smell of fish".

Kayleigh only took up singing five years ago after performing in a competition called Benidorm's Got Talent while on holiday.

And tonight she was hoping to win over Simon Cowell with her voice.

"I love Simon Cowell, I just think he's fit for his age. My biggest dream is to go out with Simon Cowell, go on the karaoke," said Kayleigh.

"I'd love to get four yeses but I'd be happy with one yes, then at least someone likes me. But four yeses would be amazing," she added.

In the audition room, Kayleigh shocked Simon when she revealed a tattoo of his name on her rear.

"I've got your name tattooed on my back," she said before bending over.

Kayleigh told Simon and fellow judges Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne that she got the inking while drunk in Magaluf.

After the banter came another shocker for the judges when Kayleigh performed Evanescence's My Immortal.

"You've got a brilliant personality and you don't realise what talent you've got," Louis said.

Simon told her: "I've got to be honest with you, before you started singing I thought this is going to be a nightmare but it was good.

"You've got to show us you're serious. You were kind of setting yourself up for a fall before you started."

With four yeses from the judges, Kayleigh sailed through to bootcamp.

The X Factor 2017 auditions continue on Sunday night at 8PM.
