Bio: Holly is the youngest contestant on this year’s X Factor, having turned 16 during one of the shows, and still lives at home with her mum and dad.

She left school to become a performer, but assured the judges that her ambition goes beyond singing to empty rooms in working mens’ clubs. She credits her 85-year-old granddad – who used to sing in a band in his youth – as her inspiration.
