As the winner of The X Factor in 2013, Sam Bailey stole the hearts of the nation.

Now she’s back with her first-ever solo headlining tour – The Power of Love, which stops off at Portsmouth Guildhall on Tuesday.

In a busy year, the former prison officer scored a Christmas number one hit with her debut single Skyscraper, and her debut album, also called The Power of Love went straight into number one and has now been certified gold.

Last spring she supported Beyonce on tour and performed with her idol Michael Bolton at the National Television Awards.

She also managed to squeeze in writing an autobiography, Daring to Dream, and having her third child in September.

And after a short break she returned to The X Factor in December to perform With You from Ghost: The Musical.

Doors open on Tuesday at 7pm. Tickets cost £27.50 or £29.50. Go to or call the box office on 0844 847 2362.
