Meet Kayleigh Taylor, the Liverpudlian contestant from the first episode of The X Factor 2017 whose giant vocals have secured her a place at boot camp.

Viewers met Kayleigh during auditions in Liverpool the northern city was the first destination the judges visited for the 2017 auditions. Enthusiastic Kayleigh managed to stir up interest with viewers and was soon telling her life story down the lens of the camera.

My names Kayleigh Taylor, Im 36 and Im from Liverpool, she began, before getting into the music.

I first started singing five years ago. I done [sp] an audition in Benidorm called Benidorms Got Talent, and it was big.The experienced singer has never worked professionally as a singer, and has insisted upon a quiet family life in Liverpool until now.

I live with my three little girls, and my partner, she said.

The unlikely star and fish N chip shop worker had one big confession: I love Simon Cowell, I think its fit for his age. Id like to go out with Simon, go on the karaoke, she revealed.

And her feelings turned out to be somewhat mutual because despite as Cowell and other judges Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger showered Kayleigh in praise for her caramel-soft vocals, full of rich intensity as she sang Evanescence hit, My Immortal.

Id like to get four yeses but Id be happy with one yes, but four yeses would be amazing, she confessed, before leaving on top of the world with all four votes.

Before you started singing I thought this is going to be a nightmare, Simon admitted, before carrying on: But you have probably the best voice weve heard today.

Collaring her for the self-depreciating jokes about her weight she kept dropping, Simon said: Youve gotta be serious.

Louis added: Wow. Youve got a great personality, you dont realise the talent youve got.

Stop all the crap about the weight, Sharon ordered, before Nicole added:You have a beautiful gift.

Earlier in the audition, Kayleigh bid for cheap laughs over her weight, saying: I lied on my dating profile, I said I was a size eight but I missed the one off in front.

And in a risky move, Kayleigh admitted: I got your name tattooed on my back, to a wincing Simon before she added (while half-mooneying the judges): I had about ten vodkas [before getting the tattoo done], they were about a Euro.

Im giving you the biggest yes of the day, Louis said before Simon offered her fourth: If youre up for it, I am youve got four yeses, he said, swallowing her earlier awkward tattoo remarks.

Find out whether Kayleigh makes it past boot camp stage later on in the series.
