X Factor contestant Jale Antor fought for the judges love and won on Saturday night.

The Skegness singer made a show stopping debut in front of millions of viewers on the ITV1 show.

Jale dressed up as judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini to perform the singer’s track ‘Fight for This Love’.

Wearing a red military tunic, cap and black trousers Jale sang from a lyric sheet.

After the performance judge Simon Cowell described the likeness between Jale and Cheryl as uncanny as he took photos of the pair.

Jale who runs the Hair, Health and Beauty Centre in Wainfleet hinted we have not seen the last of her on the show.

She said: “The programme did not reveal if I had gone through, but I can say there is more to come from me. I got on really well with all the judges they were lovely. I got a couple of kisses of Simon and he took pictures of me sitting next to Cheryl. She was surprised then really happy to see me dressed like her. I am a serious singer, but was trying to get a smile on the judges faces.”

Trained singer Jale had to attend several auditions before getting to appear before the judging panel which also included former Spice Girl Mel B and Louis Walsh. She was accompanied by mum Sylvia and fiancé Mark.

Jale said: “It was a lovely experience, most of the comments have been really positive. A lot of people have popped into the saloon to ask me what it was like. Now I want to show that I can do something different, and sing seriously.”
