Gravesend’s Tamera Foster is set to switch on the Bluewater Christmas lights this evening, ahead of her performance on X Factor tomorrow.

The 16-year-old will join last year’s runner-up Jahmene Douglas for the event, who will perform hits from his number one album Love Never Fails.

Tamera is set to belt out Shirley Bassey’s Diamonds Are Forever on the ITV1 talent show this weekend, as the contestants do battle yet again in The Great British Songbook week.

She will be hoping to avoid a repeat of her sing-off appearance a fortnight ago, though she breezed through week five of the live shows last week with her version of Ella Fitzgerald’s Cry Me A River.

The Bluewater lights switch-on and fireworks display begins at 6pm this evening, with on-stage performances taking place in the Marks and Spencer car park.
