Former X Factor winner Sam Bailey has joked she only entered the show so she could have building work done on her house.
Appearing as a guest on Loose Women, she said: “I’m currently living with family because I’m having an extension on the house and we’re living in a bedroom of my sister-in-law’s house with two sets of bunk beds and a cot in one room.
“It’s been fun, but I’m now ready to have my house because it’s being built.

“I only went on The X Factor to get an extension on the house.
“Honestly, all I wanted was a bit of exposure so I can get more gigs and more money and then, next thing you know it’s happening.”
Sam said she will move back into her house next month.
“My sister-in-law and brother have been brilliant for putting us up, we’ve all had so much fun.”
