A Doncaster singing star took centre stage when she appeared on The X-Factor.

Jodie Porteous, 21, from Doncaster, was seen by a nationwide audience of millions after an advert starring her was screened during the breaks on Saturday night’s smash hit ITV show.

Programme sponsor TalkTalk TV chose Jodie’s rendition of ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper to appear in one of the ‘BopHeads’ music videos during the adverts.

Vlogger Jodie said@: “Although I love to sing I don’t think I’d be brave enough to audition for The X Factor, so to see myself on national television singing is amazing!

David Parslow, Head of Marketing at TalkTalk, said: “Fans of The X Factor love having the chance to be part of one of the nation’s favourite entertainment shows.

Our BopHeads music videos are huge fun. Whether you’re rocking out with the whole family or belting out a solo ballad, anyone can get a taste of stardom”.

BopHeads stars already include current X Factor winner Ben Haenow, runner-up Fleur East and 2009 finalist, Stacey Solomon.

Like Jodie, anyone can be on TV, all fans need to do is download the app from Apple Store or Google Play, choose their track to sing along to and hit record.
