Carolynne Poole is a little bit country and a little bit rock, and that's why we love her so much.

The X Factor's Carolynne is one of Gary Barlow's Over 28s in this year's competition, and we think this year could be her year. Carolynne made it through to Judges' Houses last year, but mentor Louis Walsh decided to put through that crazy lady Goldie instead of the mega-talented Carolynne.

But it's not just The X Factor stage that Carolynne's performed on - the 32-year-old also appeared on the second series of Fame Academy in 2003. She got to the final but was beaten by spiky-haired cutie Alex Parks.

As well as singing, Carolynne's a bit of a dab hand at acting too. She's starred in Emmerdale and a number of short films and pantomimes.
