Hayley attended All Hallows Catholic High School before studying performing arts at Cardinal Newman College, Preston.

She moved to the Ribble Valley at the age of 18. In this series, it has been revealed that viewers will decide who makes the live shows.

It’s the latest twist to the show, with the knockout rounds also airing live for the very first time.

Hayley, who is currently concentrating on developing her singing career, is looking forward to the challenge but admits she is nervous.

Her progress through the rounds has earned her and her dad coverage in many newspapers, websites and magazines.

She said: “It’s all been a bit crazy to be honest.

“I can’t believe my face is everywhere – it seems unreal but I’m slowly starting to get used to it. “The next round is going to a public vote and I’m hoping that Lancashire will get behind me and vote me through. “It’s all about numbers - please pick up the phone and vote for me.”
