X Factor singer Lauren Lovejoy is set to perform at the official launch of a new Mediterranean restaurant in Melton.

Lauren, who starred on the 2014 X Factor show, now lives in Brook Street, Melton, and she will be performing at the new Amore restaurant on Burton Street on Tuesday (June 21) at around 7.30pm. The restaurant launch is from around 6.30pm, a free buffet will be provided as part of the celebration.

Lauren, who is originally from Nottingham, said: “I went to Amore for a meal and just got talking to the new owners about music. We got on really well.”

Lauren’s quirky charm won over the X Factor judges in 2014. She got through to the boot camp stage of the competition, after sailing through the audition stages, but didn’t make it through to perform to a live audience on stage.

Lauren, who has Asperger Syndrome, was also crowned Miss Congeniality and Miss Not In Vain at the Miss Universe Great Britain Final in July 2014.

She is also set to perform in a touring performance of sell-out West End production Factor 2025 at the Hertford Theatre in Hertfordshire on September 10.
