Last year’s X-Factor champion James Arthur recently got braces to straighten out his misaligned teeth and now it seems that the latest victor has decided to follow suit. Newly crowned X-Factor winner Sam Bailey underwent a startling makeover to take part in the live shows, and now she has spoken to The Mirror about the presents she would like for Christmas this year, which includes an improvement to her signature gap-toothed smile.
Bailey – nicknamed ‘Screwbo’ in reference to her job as a prison officer and the Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle – said that although she was pleased with the changes to her hair and make-up, she had not ruled out seeing an orthodontist to get her teeth fixed. She said ‘I won’t be getting face lifts or plastic surgery. But I’ll probably get some teeth fixed. But that’s it; let nature take its course.’
As well as new champion Sam Bailey and last year’s winner James Arthur, X-Factor has done more than its fair share of advertising for dental work, with previous contestant Rylan Clark and former judges Cheryl Cole and Tulisa Contostavlos showing off the results of their veneer treatment in recent years.
