The 19-year-old supermarket worker from Guisborough, North Yorkshire has been supported by her dad, Paul throughout the competition - and he's gained as many fans as Abi!

"I think everyone likes my dad more than me!" she laughs.

"I'll have to set him up a Twitter page.

"Everyone I speak to says 'I love your dad!' I try not to tell him too much because he might get a little bit big headed!"

"I went to see Take That in Sunderland's Stadium of Light, and I stood in the audience as they sang 'A Million Lovesongs'.
