Former X Factor finalist Kerry McGregor was remembered for her talent and determination yesterday as more than 400 mourners gathered for her funeral.

The 37-year-old from Pumpherston, West Lothian, who appeared in the 2006 series of the show, died last week after a battle with bladder cancer.

She was laid to rest after a funeral service at the Kirk of Calder in Mid Calder.

Sharon Osbourne, her mentor on the television show, and singer Susan Boyle sent tributes.

Kerry was due to record Wings To Fly with the star and a recording of Boyle’s performance was played during the service.

The church was full to capacity for the funeral, led by the Rev John Povey.
