ANOTHER girl from East Lancashire is hoping to take the X Factor route to stardom.

Kelsey Gill, of Sabden, is in line to be part of a six-piece girl band being formed by Simon Cowell.

The impresario’s intervention cheered the 20-year-old after she was turned down by Sharon Osbourne for her final line-up. She was passed over after singing an original song called ‘Scars’.

Kelsey’s battle for showbiz success is running alongside that of Grace Davies of Langho, who shone as the six chair challenge started on Sunday. She will now come under the auspices of Osbourne in the judges’ houses section.

Cowell is putting together an X Factor girl band to fill the hole left when boy band One Direction went their separate ways last year.

The new band will be intent on emulating the success of Little Mix, who were also formed this way.

Kelsey, whose mother is called Debbie, went to Bowland High School in Clitheroe.

Taking to Facebook and hinting we may see more of her, Kelsey said: "What an amazing experience, Overwhelmed by all the support. Love you all so much. This is not the end."

Three years ago, when she had already been singing for a few years, she reached the regional finals of Open Mic UK, a national search for unsigned acts, leaving her mother 'very proud'.

Two years earlier she finished third in a Grab event, an annual showcase of young talent at Clitheroe’s Grand Theatre.

Grace, meanwhile,impressed the judges with yet another original song in Sunday’s show from Wembley Arena, which was the start of the six chair challenge.

She chose to perform another original song called ‘Do It Better’.

Grace, who has performed self-penned tracks at every stage of the competition, revealed her new song was a follow up to her bootcamp performance.

She said: “This is the sequel to my bootcamp audition. This is how I felt a few months after my break-up, still better, but I realised I can do it better without him.”

She added: “I’m definitely starting to believe in myself. I need to fight for it now.”

After the performance Cowell raved: “I wouldn’t give you a chair, I’d give you the chairs, the table, the water, my tea, my prawn cocktail Skips, that’s how much I like you.”

Grace cites Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and Mumford & Sons among her songwriting influences.

She now shares management with X Factor 2011 star Janet Devlin. They moved into a house together in London earlier this year.

She has more than 11,000 followers on the streaming website SoundCloud.
