'X Factor's Gamu faces visa appeal

Friday May 20, 2011

A decision to let former X Factor hopeful Gamu Nhengu and her family remain in the UK is to be challenged by the Home Office.

Last week, it was revealed Gamu and her family had won their appeal against deportation, as an immigration court ruled that an order for them to be returned to their Zimbabwean homeland should be overturned.

But the 19-year-old, her mother Nokuthula Ngazana and two brothers have been dealt a fresh blow as the Home Office confirmed it would appeal against the court's decision.

The teenager, who lives in Clackmannanshire, Scotland shot to fame on last year's X Factor when she was controversially voted off the show during the judges' houses round.
