Olly Murs has finally met his doppelganger, Jamie Benkert, 24 year old health care assistant from Southend.
In tonight’s X Factor show (5th September) we meet Jamie Benkert, 24 year old health care assistant and Olly Murs tribute act from Southend.
Nick Grimshaw welcomed Jamie to the audition process, and asked him a few personal questions about age and where he’s from – Simon butted in and asked: “Jamie, does anyone say you remind them of anyone in particular?”
Jamie responded “People say I remind them of Ian Beale from EastEnders” – Simon joked and said: “No.. I’m thinking closer to home,”
Cheryl’s sat there all confused, wondering who he reminds her of.
Simon then calls Olly Murs out of the side wings and gets him to stand by the side of Jamie.
Jamie sang a medley of Drake’s ‘Hold On Were Going Home’ and Mark Ronson’s ‘Uptown Funk’.
Watch tonight to find out the result of Jamie’s audition. In the meantime watch a tease of his audition below:
