The X Factor star Faye got a *big* reaction on Twitter after claiming she was 24 during her audition...
The X Factor auditions have been totally epic up until now – but one auditionee, Faye Horne, caused a right stir on Twitter at the weekend.
First up, there was that very awkward incident when Simon Cowell accidentally misheard her surname. Yep, that was awkward all right.
The judge left Faye in a fit of giggles after pronouncing her name as ‘Faye Horny’ instead, but the singer soon composed herself enough to belt out a powerful rendition of Sam Smith’s Writing’s On The Wall.
However, it was less her singing voice, and more her age, that provoked a huge reaction online, after Faye stated she was 24-years-old.
‘Faye is the real life Benjamin button ? 24 my stovies #XFactor’, one viewer tweeted.
’24 my arse Faye ?✋? #XFactor’, another slammed.
Whilst another simply stated: ‘I think Faye is lying about her age ? #xfactor’.
However, being the sassy lady she is, Faye completely ignored the confusion over her age, and instead headed to Twitter to flirt a little more with Simon (and to thank her fans) straight after her audition.
‘Stop it Simon! Make sure you tune into #XtraFactorLive on ITV2 straight after the #Xfactor! Thank you for all your support! ?’, she tweeted.
