Bianca fails to impress on X Factor
Football legend Paul Gascoigne's step-daughter Bianca pays the penalty after trying to impress the judges with her singing skills on tonight's X Factor.
The 25-year-old, who appeared on reality show Love Island, said she wanted the public to see there was more to her than being "this party girl".
She said: "I just hope they don't think I'm just doing this as another show, this is really what I want, I love singing and hopefully they can see that when I walk on stage, you know that I really do care and that I'm going to be nervous because it means so much to me."
But her performance of Mary J Blige's I'm Going Down fails to impress the panel, with Gary Barlow telling her it was "really not good enough".
He said: "What the other 25-year-olds have is that they've been singing all their lives, seriously singing. At 25 you should be a lot better than that. In general it was a bit of a mediocre audition."
Bianca gets a bit more sympathy from Tulisa Contostavlos, who tells her: "I appreciate and admire the fact that you've come up and basically wanted to try something different and change the public's perception of you and I think you're a cool girl. I've met you out a couple of times, but I've got to be honest - I don't think the vocals were strong enough for this competition."
One contestant who is a hit is 17-year-old Jade Collins from Belfast.
The teenager wows the panel with her version of Beyonce's Sweet Dreams and Tulisa tells her: "We always look for a spark when someone steps on stage, where you just go there is something here and it's something special and I saw that in you today."
