AMAZING Grace Davies sailed through the first part of X Factor bootcamp.

The 20-year-old from Langho sung James Arthur's 'Say You Won't Let Go' with three others in the first stage of this weekend's ITV programme.

The warehouse worker, who wowed the judges in the opening show of the new series with her own song 'Roots', initially seemed to struggle in her second audition.

She said: "The pressure's a lot — it's about trying to prove how much you want it.

"My first audition went so well so being here now is very nerve wracking.

"This was a reality check — in my head I was like 'Grace you're not pushing yourself'."

After making it through the first stage of bootcamp, viewers will now have to wait until Sunday night to see Grace perform in front of 4,000 people at Wembley.

In a clip from Sunday's show, Grace told the TV cameras: "I'm not ready for this journey to end. I have to get through today."

The former Clitheroe Royal Grammar School pupil was named as the bookies' favourite to win the show earlier this month.

The singer has already tasted the limelight earlier in her fledgling career.

Her song ‘Drop That’ was aired on BBC Radio One and it was signed by Sony Music Entertainment and Get Twisted Records.

Grace used to gig every Friday at Angles Restaurant in Longridge also had success in 2015 when her cover of ‘Hello’ by Adele went viral, reaching almost 11 million views on SoundCloud. To date the track has more than 51 million views.
