‘I’m not used to singing all the time and I think I’ve done too much practice,’ 20-year-old Sam revealed.

‘I’m really nervous about it, I wasn’t too worried on Wednesday night but yesterday morning I was working with the vocal coach and it went completely.

‘I was really shocked, I didn’t think it was that bad. I’m just gonna do my best and have lots of hot lemon and honey.’
