recognized her face when they saw her in newspapers or on TV. After the series finished, she and the other
participants did a tour of the UK. Lottie signed a contract with a record company and released her first album a few
months later. The new series of the talent show started at the same time and the viewers were more interested in the
new participants than in Lottie. Her album wasnt successful and soon everyone forgot about her.

others. Today she is sixteen and she works as a volunteer for a charity. She works with younger children. These
children all have problems because at some point in their lives something bad happened to them. Lottie helps them
