Revealed! X Factor favourite Jay James' wife Victoria's saucy past under alias 'Vikki'...


With his stunning performance, beautiful family and tragic past – you could say we’ve all fallen a little bit in love with former Royal Navy fitness instructor Jay James Picton on X Factor.

Mel B and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini blushed following his rendition of Coldplay’s Fix You, the arena audience roared with a standing ovation, and our hearts melted a little as we watched from home.

After joining the navy at 16, X Factor favourite Jay James, 30, was forced to leave after suffering an injury and has since been trying to desperately break the music industry to support his wife Victoria Picton, 35, and little daughter Nova.

Having been spotted at a club in London, Jay James went on to release his debut album in 2012 following huge support slots with the likes of Jessie J and Rebecca Ferguson, and a performance on This Morning.

The album flopped however leading Jay James to quickly bein dropped by Universal Music Group’s label Decca, but Jay isn’t the only one in his family whose had a taste of fame before.

As Twitter exploded last night with girls gushing over the X Factor hopefuls performance, you may have noticed a few confused tweets from the blokes as his wife Victoria, who married Jay in 2013, popped up on screen holding their adorable daughter Nova.

Victoria, founder of Miss Independent Women – a lifestyle website which channels ‘fearless females to be the best in every area of their lives’ shockingly has had her own taste of fame.

Before changing her name, Victoria went by x-rated alias Vikki Thomas and was a topless glamour model and Elite TV presenter.

During her x-rated career – she’s since retired – saucy Vikki would strip down to next to nothing while interacting with excitable viewers during her daily slot on the babe channel.

As our racy snap shows (this one of the tamer ones!), lads mag favourite Vikki was certainly not shy about showing off her assets!


I wonder if any of the judges ever caught one of her live shows? Our eyes are on you Mr Cowell!
