X FACTOR flop Emma Chawner is setting her sights on TV stardom following her third audition for the talent show.
Great Harwood residents Emma, 20, and her older sister Samantha, 21, formed the group Sister Act which featured on last Saturday night’s show.
Following their audition, judge Simon Cowell said: "It was arguably twice as bad as before"
Emma replied: "You’re not going to stop me."
Despite him telling the Chawners to never audition again, the family have acquired a television agent and will feature in a new six-part weight loss documentary with morning television host Lorraine Kelly.
Emma said: "We enjoyed the X Factor experience but we are cracking on with our own TV show on Biography, which we’re really enjoying."
Filming has already begun and the show is scheduled to air on Biography in January 2010.
The sisters and their parents Audrey and Philip, who claim nearly £16,000 a year in benefit, spent seven weeks living in the family car after neighbours in Ramsbottom complained about their late night karaoke session. Just before Christmas 2008, they moved in to a rented home in Russell Place, Great Harwood.
Their new neighbours said the family hadn’t been too bad.
Lynne Olesinski said of Emma: "I think people feel sorry for her more than anything as she seems to be under a misguided illusion.
"It’s a shame as I am sure they are very nice people. But I think because it makes good viewing, the X Factor seems to pick certain types of people, including people other people will laugh at. I don’t know if the X Factor is setting them up for a fall, as we all laugh at it. But we are laughing at them and not with them."
