X Factor viewers love everything about new hopeful Talia Dean

Cowell even offered to carry her bags to bootcamp.

Latest X Factor hopeful Talia Dean stunned the show’s judging panel on Saturday night, with everything from her singing voice to her quips at Simon Cowell.

The VIP concierge worker, 32, told judges Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne that she had once carried their bags for them through Heathrow Airport and they encouraged her to pursue her dreams and apply for the show.

When Cowell asked her who her worst celebrity customer was, she said: “What if it was you?”

Moments later she impressed the panel with her soulful rendition of Nina Simone’s I Put A Spell On You, earning herself four Yes votes and a place at the ITV show’s bootcamp.

Cowell even promised: “I will carry the bags”.

Viewers at home were equally blown away, with one posting on Twitter: “Fantastic stuff Talia!! Look forward to hearing much more of you…”

Following her victory, one added: “So glad she is a good singer! Fab personality and voice,” while another joked: “Well someone is going to have to carry her bags now.”

Another said they got “tingles with this woman’s gritty tones,” while one commented: “I loved this lady she’s got an unusual voice xx”.

Predicting a possible win for Dean already, one posted: “Totally 100 % amazing. Whoaaaa. Love your audition! IN IT TO WIN IT #xfactor.”

The X Factor continues on ITV with another round of auditions at 8pm on Sunday.
