Cynon Valley - - YOUR NEWS - SHERNA NOAH news­desk@waleson­line.co.uk

SINGER Lu­cie Jones has mar­ried her fel­low X Factor con­tes­tant sweet­heart.

Jones, 26, who rep­re­sented the UK at Euro­vi­sion ear­lier this year, met Ethan Boroian when they both au­di­tioned for The X Factor in 2009.

The cou­ple mar­ried at St David’s Church in Miskin.

West End star Jones, from Pen­tyrch near Cardiff, wore an ivory tulle gown by Char­lotte Bal­bier.

She told Hello! mag­a­zine: “As soon as I saw Ethan, look­ing so dash­ing in his blue wed­ding suit, I started to well up.

“Then the male voice choir started to sing our song, God Only Knows by The Beach Boys, and an over­whelm­ing feel­ing of in­tense emo­tion came over me.

“Sud­denly, every pre­cious mem­ory of our time to­gether came flood­ing back and I couldn’t stop the tears.

“I felt so elated and knew that mar­ry­ing him was the best thing I would ever do.”

Chicago-born Boroian said: “It was in­cred­i­ble see­ing her in her wed­ding dress for the first time. I couldn’t take my eyes off her.”

The cou­ple first met at boot camp dur­ing the film­ing of The X Factor eight years ago, when Jones made it into the fi­nal 12.

They stayed in touch be­fore go­ing out on their first date five years later.

“Ethan is ev­ery­thing I could ever have wanted in a man,” Jones said. “I count my lucky stars I found him every sin­gle day.”

Jones ap­peared on The X Factor along­side Olly Murs, Stacey Solomon and Jed­ward in 2009.

She won a stand­ing ova­tion in her first au­di­tion after singing Whit­ney Hous­ton’s I will Al­ways Love You. She got through to the live shows, even­tu­ally fin­ish­ing in sev­enth place.

Jones has since had a num­ber of stage roles in the likes of Les Mis­er­ables, Ghost, Legally Blonde and Rent.
