Lauren Goodger has revealed she auditioned for The X Factor before finding fame on TOWIE - and we've found a recording of her singing!
Lauren Goodger is a woman of many talents – and it sounds as though singing might just be one of them after she revealed she once auditioned for The X Factor!
The TOWIE star says that she tried out for the TV talent show before she hit the big time with the award-winning ITV show.
And she adds that, whilst she’d never dream of trying out now, she does fancy herself as an X Factor JUDGE. Watch out, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Rita Ora – Lauren is after your seat!
Writing in her New magazine column, Lauren says: ‘Like the rest of the nation I’ve been glued to The X Factor. My dream job would [to] be a judge on [the show]. I think I’d be the best one. A girl can dream, eh!
‘As some of you may know, I auditioned years ago, before I made a name for myself on TOWIE. I’d never audition now though, because I don’t think I’d be taken seriously.’
Obviously we’ve searched the internet high and low looking for video footage of Lauren’s X Factor moment, but we’ve come up a-blank. DAMN YOU, INTERNET.
But we *did* find this snippet that claims to be a preview of an unidentified song Lauren recorded – have a little listen and see what you think!
And it seems as though the singing bug has always been with Lauren, after she revealed in 2011: ‘If I could come back and do it all again, I’d love to be a solo pop star, but it’s not like I could break into song on The Only Way Is Essex – no-one would take me seriously.’
She added: ‘I’ve not given up on my dream, so who know what will happen after the show. Watch this space.’
We’ve now got everything crossed that Lauren ‘does a Jess Wright’ and hits us with a pop career. Come on Lauren, make it happen!
