She may have been the first finalist to leave this year's X Factor finals, but Carolynne Poole can still win some votes.
Pictures have emerged of the pretty brunette showing off her enviable figure in a pink bikini as she was frolicking on the shores of Majorca, just before the live shows started.
The 32-year-old country singer went on a girls holiday to get some much needed rest before she went on the show, which she had to leave after the first live performance.
But the singer showed she definitely has the X Factor when it comes to sizzling on the beach.
Playing around on the Spanish coast, Carolynne cooled off in the water and showed off her curves in the process.
Despite suffering the embarrassment of having the leave the popular ITV show first, the singer has vowed to continue her solo career.
Speaking to Daily Star Sunday, the sexy brunette revealed her disappointment after judge Louis Walsh booted her off the show in favour of Rylan Clarke.
The controversial move prompted her gutted mentor, Gary Barlow, to leave the stage.
But Carolynne says despite the disappointing outcome, she doesn't regret going on the show and has had several offers from other music producers because of it.
She even scored her first gig on Saturday night, when she supported Leona Lewis at her G-A-Y gig at Heaven in London.
'I've had producers sending me tracks, I've been invited to Nashville to do some writing over there with country writers ... and Gary has been great,' she told the Sunday paper.
Carolynne says her former mentor has been in touch every day, and has offered her his help in trying to launch her music career.
