Pregnant X Factor winner Sam Bailey has unveiled a behind the scenes video of her studio session with Michael Bolton.

Former prison officer Sam, who announced earlier today that she is expecting her third child with husband Craig, has given fans a visual teaser of her duet with Michael in the recording studio.

The mother-of-two sings Motown classic 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' with Michael, which is the same song the pair performed at the National Television Awards in January.

The song features on Sam's debut album, The Power of Love, which is a combination of cover tracks and brand new songs.

The video sees Sam and Michael share a mic as they lay down their vocals over the track, and add commentary about their experience working with each other. This week, Sam also previewed a sampler of her 11-track album.

Speaking about Michael, Sam exclusively told Reveal last month: "He turned up while I was singing in the booth. I was nervous but he was standing in the control bit and he was so blown away at my vocals. Then he came in and we sung together. I was totally blown away with everything.

"He's so easy to work with and he knows so much about the business, he's just a gentlemen, so I'm very lucky to have had that opportunity with him."

Life has been pretty hectic for Sam since winning The X Factor last December. The 'Skyscraper' singer has achieved a number one single, performed live with Michael and performed as a support act on Beyoncé's tour, as well as currently showcasing her vocals on 'The X Factor Live Tour'.

Speaking about how fame has impacted her children Tommy and Brooke, Sam told us in February: "Tommy doesn't really understand it. He still thinks that I'm doing The X Factor now. He misses me but I'm genuinely doing it for them.

"I want to put money in the bank so that my kids have got some savings. These sacrifices are being made now so that we can better our lives. It's to build a future for our family."

The Power of Love is due for release on 24 March.
