Pregnant X Factor winner Sam Bailey looked as cheerful as always yesterday following her performance on Loose Women.

The 'Skyscraper' singer dressed down in an all-black outfit and comfy boots as she left the central London ITV studios on Thursday (27 March), waving to photographers waiting outside.

X Factor's tenth winner Sam is pregnant with her third child but kept her baby bump covered with a cosy jumper and chic leather jacket.

The 36-year-old was on Loose Women to promote her new album, The Power of Love, and to perform, but of course there was chat about X Factor as well as she's currently wrapping up the 'X Factor Live Tour' with the rest of last year's finalists.

"It's quite sad, really," she said. "We've had such a good time on the tour. It's so different from the show where there is more pressure. Here, the pressure is gone, no one is in competition and everyone is having a really good time."

Former prison officer Sam also revealed she was hoping to be invited back to X Factor later this year, whether as a performer or a guest.

"It would be nice to go back as when we were on the show, we had the likes of James Arthur, Jessie J and Harry Styles come backstage to say hello and that gives people that little boost," she explained.

"I'd like to be able to go back and do that. It would be nice to say hello to everyone and give them a boost because that really did help."

Sam's debut album, The Power of Love, featuring her Christmas number one song 'Skyscraper', is available now and tipped to top the Mother's Day album chart at the weekend.
