The chart-topper, who won the singing contest in 2013, is delighted that her mentor Sharon Osbourne is back on the rebooted programme.

Sam's new single Sing My Heart Out has just been released.

It's featured on her own self-funded album which she wrote herself.

"My heart and soul went into writing the album. I'm very proud of it." - Singer Sam Bailey

Sam has recently finished a sting in the musical Chicago and told listeners how she wants to do more musicals in the future now that she has a taste for them.


Steve met up with her while on a cruise ship similar to the ones she used to work on before hitting the big time.

He also caught up with singer Kiki Dee, who will feature in a Sensational 70s special next week.
