- Pizza maker from Brentwood makes it through to Boot Camp -
Roxy Yarnold, a 19 year old pizza maker from Domino’s in Brentwood, wowed the X Factor judges over the weekend with her rendition of Georgia on My Mind. Receiving four yeses from the panel, Roxy is now through to Boot Camp, the next stage of the top ITV1 singing competition.
Roxy has worked at the Domino’s store on Brentwood High Street for the past three years but dreams of taking the charts by storm as the next female singing sensation. Roxy’s influences include Joss Stone, Jessie J, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone. Music has always been in her blood – Roxy started singing at the age of five and was encouraged to apply for this year’s show by her colleagues at Domino’s.
Roxy Yarnold said: “I’m always singing at work – sometimes I don’t even realise I’m doing it! – and my co-workers kept saying I should apply so this year, I thought I’d go for it. I was over the moon to get a ‘yes’ from each of the judges.”
Saif Alani, franchisee of Domino’s in Brentwood, said: “Not only is she a great pizza maker but Roxy is a very talented singer too. Everyone in the store is behind her and we really hope she does well at boot camp. We will be gutted if Roxy has to leave pizza making to pursue her music career but we hope she’ll still order plenty of Domino’s pizzas on her rider!”
