But last night TV viewers saw Carolynne, 32, of Birkby, shed tears of joy as she made it into Gary Barlow’s final six.

Carolynne said: “It was a difficult decision to audition again this year. I was gutted when Louis sent me home and it took me a long time to recover. If it doesn’t work out this time I won’t come back but right now the fight is still on.”
