Luke Lucas' X Factor dream continues

24 September 2011

Luke Lucas, 16, from Margate, performs on the X Factor

From Thanet to Los Angeles – young Luke Lucas is just one step away from the X Factor live shows after making it through to judges' houses.

The 16-year-old, from Margate, got the thumbs-up at boot camp, having already wowed the judges with his first audition.

A joint performance of Cee Lo Green's Forget You had left the judges underwhelmed but Luke made ammends with his second song, which he performed in front of a 5,000-strong crowd at Wembley Arena.

This weekend sees Luke put through his paces at Take That star Gary Barlow's house in Los Angeles.

Girl group Dolled Up are hoping for X Factor success

Meanwhile, girl group Dolled Up, whose members include Georgia D'arcy, 21, from Kings Hill, failed to make it past boot camp.

The five - Georgia, Lili-Mae Tuttle, Alice Androsch, Lauren Adams and Sophie Holmes - had been hoping to make the next round, where they would have faced Tulisa Contostavlos in Greece.
