Did you recognise this star in X Factor ad?



X Factor is known for finding chart-topping talent with the likes of One Direction, Little Mix and Louisa Johnson.

However, Simon Cowell and his team let one extremely talented individual slip right through their fingers. 

In 2013, X Factor’s promotional advert involved a young girl singing in her back garden and people from her community gathered around to listen to her. 

The advert then ends with her auditioning in front of the judges. 

Turns out that the girl was Dua Lipa!

If only Simon had watched his own adverts… Dua could’ve possibly been signed to his label instead!

Check out the advert below!
