Two people from Chester will forever be stuck in Simon Cowell's memory after their audition for the X Factor.

Pauline Brenda Williams, 56, and James Button, 39, appeared on the Xtra Factor as musical duo 'The Lovelies' which aired on Sunday, September 7 on ITV2 at 5.55pm.

The pair, who say they met in a pub in Chester, started with high hopes for the competition. Pauline said: "I definitely think we could win this competition so we can be playing at places like Glastonbury.

She later added: "We want to bring joy and happiness to people and we're hoping that people like us."

The Lovelies performed a rendition of Georgie Girl, originally by The Seekers, with James on acoustic guitar and Pauline on tambourine

After their performance judge and record producer Simon Cowell said: "If I'm being honest with you The Lovelies I didn't imagine a group like that winning the show. It was a little bit crazy.

"You were a little bit over excited but I like you two."

Luis Walsh added: "We've never had a act like it before, you're different than everybody else."

After only one yes vote from Cheryl Cole who said: "I love your message of happiness and a bit of tambourine action never hurt anyone.", sadly The Lovelies did not make it to the next round but Cowell praised them saying: "You gave it your best shot and I'm definitely going to remember you."
