Carolynne came third in BBC's Fame Academy in 2003 and also went far in the X Factor two years in a row.

In 2011 Carolynne, who was married to footballer David Poole from 2008-2011, made it through to the X Factor judges' houses stage, but was sent home. 

The following year she progressed to the live shows but was sent home in a controversial deadlock that saw Rylan Clark remain in the singing show.
