A source told The Sun: “Amelia was a big hit on the X Factor with viewers falling in love with her big voice and personality.

“She’s sure to make an impression in the house and fans of the show will no doubt enjoy watching her day in day out.”

Amelia appeared on the 2011 series of ‘The X Factor’, where she was mentored by Kelly Rowland

She was axed by the judge in the first week of live shows in a twist, but later returned to the competition when Frankie Cocozza was thrown off for taking cocaine. 

She ended up finishing in third place, behind Marcus Collins and eventual winners Little Mix
