They got through the show’s opening auditions, the first of which was in April, and the qualifyingauditions, which were held in front of a live audience of 2,000 people at Cardiff’s international arena earlier this month.

Nichola, a recruitment consultant from St Thomas, Exeter; Laura, 28, from Dawlish who works as an administrator at the city’s international school, and 25-year-old Torquay nurse, Eloise, sang songs; including an Abba number in the qualifying audition.

Nichola, who is the lead singer, said: “We can’t disclose anything past this point — but it’s okay to say we got to boot camp.”
