During tonight’s show, which saw the charismatic Surrey lass proceed to the Six Chair Challenge, one fan tweeted a picture of Scarlett from when she was 13 and exclaimed: “Hard to believe it’s the same girl.”

And while her appearance has left people at home with raised eyebrows, the makeup artist insisted to The Sun Online that she doesn’t wear fake tan, and blamed the cameras.

She said: “I never had tan on. I am genuinely dark, but the cameras made me look so much darker then what I actually was.”

“I went and bought make-up and foundation for the TV and it just went horribly wrong. It made me look even darker.”

During her first audition, the singer appeared to have applied some very deep fake tan, which she accentuated with bright orange eyeshadow, some bright highlighter, and deep purple lip liner.

She complimented the bold look with a bright orange Bardot style dress and fans of the show were quick to comment.

One tweeted: “Yikes! That’s so much orange make up. Hiding her lovely face.”

Another added: “Give her some exfoliator to get a couple layers of tan off and she would be so good.”

A third laughed: “This girls fake tan is darker than my natural skin colour … I’m Indian 😂.”

Scarlett revealed she had found the response amusing as she said: “The response has made me laugh, it’s so funny.

“I’ve just been saying, ‘orange is my favourite colour’ and ‘I love oranges’… I’d rather people pick on me as a person than be nasty about everything else.”

She added: “You can’t go onto the X Factor and think you’re perfect and think everything will go right.”
