Zoe Relives Her ‘No Way’ Moment on Our Screens

A Reality television star has relived her 15 minutes of fame.

Zoe Simpson, of Stretton, became famous last year on TV talent show X Factor for using the phrase "no way" after she was turned down by judge Simon Cowell.

She appeared on a recap show - being interviewed by Holly Willoughby - ahead of tonight's launch of the latest series on ITV, this time starring Girls Aloud favourite Cheryl Cole as a judge.

In the 12 months since Zoe first appeared on TV, she has performed her own headline show at Burton's Brewhouse arts centre.

She has also released a song, aptly titled No Way, which is available to download from www.zoesimp

Her father, Andy Simpson, said she had now "gone down south" to work as an entertainer in a holiday camp to broaden her performing experience.
