How did you feel when you found out you got Sharon as your judge?
"I was very excited to get to bootcamp. There was a lot of very talented singers there. I felt ok when I saw Sharon was my judge, but to be honest looking back now I think I might have faired better with Simon or Louis as Sharon does seem to like 'rock singers'."

What was bootcamp like?
The days at bootcamp were extremely long, we had to meet in reception at 7.00am (with all my suitcases packed in case we were sent home!) and we did not get back until nearly midnight.

"I found that the days were very emotionally draining. I was really pleased to make the cut to the final 14 people in my age group. I was absolutely gutted when I was knocked out as I didn't forget the words to my song (though a lot did!)"

What did you sing for Sharon?
"I sang 'Hero' on day one and on day two I had to sing 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me' by Elton John. I sing this song in my cabaret act, so luckily I alread knew the words and didn't have to learn it overnight!"

How did you feel when you were knocked out - and missed out on a trip to Beverly Hills?!
"Well at least I know that I gave my best performance. I didn't know about the trip to Beverly Hills until I watched on Saturday night. Gutted!"

How's life been in Blackpool since you've been on the telly?
"The support that I have had in Blackpool has been tremendous and everyone has been really supportive. And looking on the positive side, I am now available for work - so if anybody needs a Cabaret Artist just let me know!"
