TO DI FOR X Factor star Diana Vickers looks completely different in tiny ʙικιɴι 15 years after talent show

THE X Factor star Diana Vickers looks all grown up as she sizzles in a tiny green ʙικιɴι 15 years after the talent show.

Diana was labelled “H๏τ stuff” by fans as she shared some stunning swimwear snaps while holidaying in South Africa.

The singer turned actress, 31, looked amazing as she posed on a Cape Town beach in two different ʙικιɴιs, one green and one black.

“Teeny weeny 80’s ʙικιɴι,” she captioned the pics of her in the green and blue two-piece.

She then posed with her knees in the sand and acknowledged that she might be inducing envy among her followers.

“I’d mute me for the week ;)” she teased.

Diana, who competed against JLS and Alexandra Burke who won the series in 2008,  auditioned for The X Factor singing The Blower’s Daughter by Damien Rice and regularly performed barefoot during the live shows.

Simon Cowell branded her performance style “Marmite” and her unusual dancing led her to be labelled “The Claw”.

But Diana was popular with the public. During the series she also dated fellow contestant, Northern Irish Eoghan Quigg, who came third on the show.

After coming fourth on the series herself, she bagged the lead role in The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice in the West End.

She also released two albums, Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree in 2010, and Music To Make Boys Cry in 2013.

Since then she’s appeared in 2014 indie movie The Perfect Wave – about surfing – with Clint Eastwood’s son, and a Sky sitcom called Give Out Girls.

Her stage show credits include comedy play The Duck House, and the Rocky Horror Show UK tour.

In 2021, she bagged the lead in brand new musical Son Of A Preacher Man, inspired by the Dusty Springfield song of the same name.
