Former X Factor contestant Mary Byrne has lined up her first post-show television role on home shopping channel QVC.

Mary will be singing various songs, including X Factor favourite This Is A Man’s World, live on Monday, 7 March to promote her new album Mine and Yours, as well as taking part in a phone-in session with viewers.

Mary is the first of last year’s X Factor contestants to release an album and will be following in the footsteps of Susan Boyle, who achieved massive sales when she launched her debut album I Dreamed A Dream on QVC.

According to The Sun, a source said: “It makes perfect sense to flog the album on a phone-in show.

“Mary’s fans have already proved they like using their phones by voting her through to The X Factor semi-finals. It could go to Number One. It worked for Susan Boyle and will be a huge Mother’s Day hit.

“Mary is really excited. She knows she’s not as big as SuBo but she wouldn’t mind a few of her millions.

Mary’s debut album is out in the UK on March 28.
