A single mother from Sunderland has proved a hit with the X-Factor team after spending the summer working with the show.
Carley Armstrong, from Hendon, Sunderland, was offered the job after volunteering at the Newcastle auditions earlier this year.
And it was at these auditions where X Factor contestant James Arthur - from Saltburn - first caught the attention of the judges.
X-Factor producers asked Carley to work at auditions around the country - where she became friends with wildcard contestant Christopher Maloney.
And as well as Christopher, Carley also had the chance to meet Geri Halliwell, JLS, Tulisa, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Take That singer Gary Barlow.
Carley became close to contestants including Curtis Golden.
The 23-year-old media student turned down an offer to work on the X-Factor live finals to finish her degree at Sunderland University - and to look after her family.
After impressing on X-Factor, Carley has been put forward to work on the next series of Britain’s Got Talent.
