X Factor’s Lola Saunders may have to return to work as a FISHMONGER

It's sounds like her old employer really wants her back


by Owen Tonks |

Oh, Lola Saunders. Remember her? She was on the X Factor, yeah? She was a pretty good singer, yeah? Well she may have to go back to work as a FISHMONGER.

The warbler was cruelly dumped by Cheryl Fernandez-Versini at the judges’ houses stage of the show and was then given the boot in week four of the live finals.

Before rising to fame on the series she used to gut fish for a living and she may be absolutely SLAMMING the door on the glamorous showbiz world to head back to her old life.

She told the Daily Mirror: “I’ve been in contact with my old work. They got in touch with me and were like, ‘You still need to hand in a notice.’

“I’ve never felt so like... you know when your heart drops? You don’t think anything by it. It’s always been dead casual at work.

“They rang me up and said, ‘We’re doing the Christmas rotas, are you coming back or not?’ I said, ‘I’m tied up with a few things, I’m doing gigs, pursuing music, I love it.’

“Then they ring the other day, ‘Lola, are you coming back, what’s going on?’ I was like, ‘This is an amazing opportunity for me.’”

O to the M G! What if they never let her go? What if they drag her back to the place of fish guttery and chain her to a pole? WHAT IF THEY SEND HER TO FISH UNIVERSITY AND MAKE HER QUEEN OF THE FISHES?!

Excuse us, we got a bit distracted there. Lola - you've got a bright future ahead of you, yeah? Yeah...
