St Helens rising star Kiera Weathers will singing in front of some of the world’s superstars as the X Factor enters its next heat.

The 18-year-old, who rose to fame after belting out a stunning performance of Ella Eyre’s We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off in the auditions, will step her game up this weekend (October 10 and 11) at the judge’s houses.

Simon Cowell is planning to bring a host of “iconic music stars” as guest fifth judges in a bid to boost ratings.

Bosses believe that bringing in these big-names will appeal to an older audience, who may watch BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

But Kiera already has a huge fan following, with scores of people wishing her luck for Saturday’s show.

Sarah Lambert tweeted “@kiera_weathers Good Luck for tonight”.

And Lucy Wall added: “Everybody needs to go follow @kiera_weathers who’s on X factor tonight! :)”.

However, Kiera has more pressing things on her mind than to let some famous faces make her nervous.

The stunning former bar worker took to Instagram on Tuesday to ask for help with an outfit for her upcoming appearance at Haydock Racecourse next week.

She wrote: “Okay guys help me out! I need an outfit for the races next week at Haydock Race Course.. I’ll be presenting an award and checking out the local talent too, where can I get a killa stand out outfit?!”

This was met by likes from more than 100 fans, each offering advice on where to shop for fashion in her hometown.

Although something makes us think Kiera doesn’t have this problem on X Factor, with the endless stylists and make up artists on set.

A spokesman for the programme said details were still being worked on for the seven live shows, which kick off on October 31.

The run of the lives will be shorter than usual.
