Nicole took Abi Alton to a bowling alley this week. And it seemed the pair were very much in the mood to celebrate after the 18-year-old Northerner won over judges, and the audience at home – with her rendition of Bon Jovi hit Living on a Prayer in the first round of live shows.
Nicole dressed down in a pair of jeans paired with a loose-fitting white top and a wooly hat emblazoned with 'Brooklyn' for their trip to the All Star Lanes in Bayswater.
Abi was equally casual for the outing, but did jazz up her outfit with one of her hallmark flower headbands.
The talented contestant – who plays the guitar and piano and has been gigging since she was 14 – is emerging as one of the ones to watch in the competition.
She has spent this week rehearsing her song for Saturday's live show, which she is keeping under wraps.
