X Factor Mary who is from Ireland has quit her job at Tesco’s for the X Factor tour and is already planning her first record.

When interviewed by the Irish Independent about leaving Tesco, Mary said: “I had to ring them over the weekend and arrange to pop in for my P45. I’m actually quite scared about it because Tesco has been my safety net during the past six months.

“No matter what happened on X Factor, I always knew Tesco would take me back.”

Commenting about her debut album, Mary states “Nigel’s worked with Madonna on the film soundtrack for Evita. He’s done all the soundtrack albums for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals. But what most impressed me was he’s recorded Shirley Bassey who is my all-time hero.”

Mary is due to complete her album by the end of January. X Factor mentor Louis Walsh has chosen all the songs Mary will cover. Artists Mary is likely to cover include Shirley Bassey, Dusty Springfield and her amazing rendition of ‘It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World’ by James Browns

“Louis has a great track record on picking songs, he will have the final word,” she said.
