Sam released her debut album The Power of Love in 2014 and it sold over 200,000 copies in the UK. The album was the second fastest-selling album by a female artist last year and was re-issued prior to Christmas with additional tracks.

After winning The X Factor in 2013, Sam scored a Christmas number one with her debut single Skyscraper. She is currently in the midst of a UK tour which ends at the Eventim Apollo in London on Wednesday.

The X Factor’s 2014 winner Ben Haenow will be hoping he has more success than Bailey when he releases his debut album later this year.
