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.

Mary is finding it really hard to be away from her family, especially on her birthday which was last week

“I miss my daughter so much and my family. That’s why it is so sad. I got real low,”

When asked about being the last confirmed contestant she stated

“I thought I was gone. Seriously I did. I’m just glad I’m here and I promise I will be back with a fight next week.

“I won’t be nervous, I won’t be lonely and I will be singing for the people at home and here in England.”

Louis Walsh was sticking up for Mary on the hit TV shows sister show The Xtra Factor, praising her saying she still has plenty more to give in the show

“She’s got everything: she’s likable; she’s a great singer; she’s got a great personality,” said Walsh. “She didn’t have a great week. But I think next week she’ll come back fighting. Mary is a fighter.”

Pressure from the first live X Factor show and the fact she was missing her daughter made her long for home and want to return.

According to the Daily Star Sunday, “I started crying and I wanted to go home. The excitement had gone, the adrenalin was dropping and I was feeling over-tired.

“My daughter Debbie is afraid of flying so she couldn’t come over and I’ve been missing her something terrible. Some of the family came over at the weekend but I didn’t get much time with them.

“We were constantly on the go from Thursday until Sunday. We were rehearsing all the time. There’s a lot of down time as well, just sitting around. Our eating habits were all over the place. One day we’d have a good meal and the next we’d be living on sandwiches.”

The singer added that she only got to see her family for about five minutes, due to appearing on The Xtra Factor.

Hang in there Mary because we all love you and you bring joy to many people when you sing
