Fan travels from Japan to meet Cowell

By
A contestant on the X Factor travelled nearly 6,000 miles all the way from Japan so that she could audition and meet her idol Simon Cowell.

31-year-old Toshiko turned up to the Birmingham auditions and sang her own version of 'My Way', which caused Cowell to try to supress his laughter.

Toshiko told the music mogul: "I like you very much Simon, I came here just to meet you, you are very big in Tokyo."

Cowell gave the starstruck fan a hug and a kiss, then told her after her rendition: "That was a very quiet audition but very sweet voice and you’re very cute, I may have to take you home".

The episode will be shown on Saturday 1 September at 7.50pm on ITV1 followed by The Xtra Factor on ITV2 at 8.50pm.
