HALLELUJAH – the Piper pub in Hoole has the X Factor.
Regulars at the packed pub were treated to a night of talent as the city’s singers battled it out to win the X Factor 2008 in aid of Chronicle-backed charity Miles of Smiles.
Hayley Jones won the competition with a Whitney Houston classic, knocking Michelle Bebbington and Dean Brierly into second and third places respectively.
The winning trio shared £350 worth of prize money and all 11 finalists received a framed certificate, a bottle of wine and a voucher.
This was the third year of the talent contest which has proved a big hit with customers. More than £7,000 has been now been raised from the event.
The management at the Piper now has plans to stage a Chester’s Got Talent competition early this year and X Factor 2009 heats will start again in August.
