X Factor 2012 spoilers: Sian Phillips returns after disqualification last year

Sian Phillips has returned to The X Factor this year, having been disqualified from the competition last year.

The young performer had originally made it all the way through to the judges' houses stage, and was due to fly out to Miami with Kelly Rowland.

But a past criminal record meant that a US visa was refused, forcing Sian out of the competition.

Sian was spotted at bootcamp again this year, and will no doubt be hoping she won't be set for America again if she makes judges' houses!

Meanwhile model Rylan Clark, who saw success on Katie Price's Sky reality series, has also successfully made it past the first audition round.

A source revealed to The Sun: “Rylan has split the judges but they think he’s unique and are prepared to give him a chance.

"He’s a real Marmite contestant — you either love him or hate him.”
