Former X Factor finalist Emily McNamee is set to return to the show at the weekend as auditions in Newcastle.
The singer originally made the live finals back in 2008, along with JLS and Alexandra Burke as part of girl group Bad Lashes.
However the four piece, which saw Emily with bandmates Sophie Wilson, Samantha Bennett and Stacey Lincoln, were kicked out during the first live show, and split soon after.
DigitalSpy quote Emily's pal Sam Bennett as saying that she'll be audition as a soloist on Saturday when try outs move to Newcastle.
Auditions for The X Factor 2012 started in Liverpool last weekend, will go on to visit Manchester, Cardiff, Glasgow and London over the next month.
