Two ‘X Factor’ finalists with Falkirk connections are hoping for your vote when the live shows kick off tonight.

Glaswegian mum-of-two Melanie Masson (44) is through to the finals in the over-28s category with Take That singer Gary Barlow as her mentor.

Melanie is married to former Braes High School pupil, actor Forbes Masson.

Meanwhile, Falkirk-born Scott Ritchie (28) is hoping viewers will pick up the phone for him.

Scott and his band, Times Red, were sent home after the bootcamp stage but returned when another band was forced to pull out.

They did not make the final three in the bands category, managed by Louis Walsh, but have another chance with the wild card category.

They are up against three other acts for a place in the live finals of the show and will find out on Saturday if they have been successful.

Louis said: “I have brought back Times Red twice already, so I hope the public make it third time lucky for them.”
