Jenny Ryan will be returning to the live shows of The X Factor: Celebrity

She deserved to be in the Live Shows

Jenny Ryan has been sent through to the live rounds of The X Factor: Celebrity after judge Nicole Scherzinger changed her mind.

The Chase star wowed viewers and the panel - also comprised of Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh - with her impressive pipes with her performance of Queen's Somebody To Love last weekend, and fans were left shocked when she didn't make it into the next stage of the competition.

However, former Pussycat Doll Nicole has since made a u-turn and added her to her Overs category.

She said: "Jenny was just brilliant at her audition in LA.

"That voice of hers is one of a kind, and she’s an amazing person to get to know. So it was such a tough decision to make.

"After a lot of discussion we all agreed we had to put her through. The Overs are gonna smash it this year!"

Meanwhile, Jenny recently revealed she was supposed to audition for the first-ever X Factor series back in 2004, but she "chickened out" when she saw the size of the queue.

I’m so pleased it’s continuing!

Recalling the moment, she said: "I turned up and I saw the queue around the building - and I went home.

"I chickened out entirely. I wouldn't have been good enough to get through at all at that point.

"I wanted to try it out. I'd been watching Pop Idol and thinking, 'This is quite interesting isn't it?'

"Let's give it a go, it might just last one series."
