Blonde farmer lady Hannah Kilminster took The X Factor by storm on Sunday evening when she belted out Queen's Somebody To Love – but it turns out she's ALREADY worked with Simon Cowell.

The 30-year-old singer, who got an incredible reaction from the judging panel and audience, worked as a backing singer on Britain's Got Talent, was the lead soprano for Il Divo at the Royal Albert Hall AND she's been in several musical stage shows.

But we found her profile on talent directory Star Now has since been taken down. Weird, no?

Ahead of her audition, Hannah appeared on camera and said: "I haven't been to many auditions.

"Being stuck on a farm, you don't get many opportunities to sing - apart from to the animals."

She added: "I'm not sure how this is going to go. I'm not sure how I'll handle performing in front of a room full of strangers. This isn't seen as something achievable where I'm from."


An X Factor spokesperson has told the Mirror: "Hannah grew up and worked on her family farm.

"As an aspiring professional singer, Hannah has done occasional performing jobs in the past, but has never made a full time living out of it or done anything on the scale of her X Factor audition."
