Former 'Big Brother' and 'Popstars: The Rivals' contestant Stephanie McMichael has auditioned for the new series of 'The X Factor'
Former 'Big Brother' contestant Stephanie McMichael has auditioned for 'The X Factor'.
The 21-year-old blonde- who was the first person voted out in the 2008 series - has formed a girlband called The LiverBirds who have been asked to perform for the panel in the televised auditions in June after impressing producers in the early rounds.
Stephanie has already met judge Cheryl Cole before - they both took part in 'Popstars: The Rivals' in 2002, where the 'Fight for This Love' singer won her place in Girls Aloud but the blonde beauty was disqualified for being three years under the age minimum.
According to Stephanie's mother Jo, it was Cheryl who first raised suspicions about her rival's age and now Stephanie is determined to prove herself on 'The X Factor'.
Jo told the Daily Star newspaper: "Cheryl was quizzing her about her age because I think that she was a bit suspicious.
"Stephanie made loads of stories up. It was quite difficult for her.
"She was gutted. She could have been in Girls Aloud and had that taken away. Being bigger than Cheryl would be good revenge."
