Only five series in, it was drawing huge viewing figures, with the finale notching a whopping 14 million viewers.Arguably, that season also brought us some of the show's most memorable (and successful) contestants in the shape of Ruth Lorenzo, JLS, Alexandra Burke and Diana Vickers.In 1977, Karen Wolek (Kathryn Breech), fiancée to Llanview Hospital chief of staff Dr.Larry Wolek (Michael Storm), is planning for her impending nuptials when ex-boyfriend Marco Dane arrives in Llanview.
Now Northern Ireland teenager Eoghan, whose victory over Diana in the sing-off meant she was kicked off the show, believes he will be seeing her again soon.Diana Vickers (born July 30, 1991) is an English singer-songwriter, fashion designer and actress from Blackburn, Lancashire who competed on Series 5 of The X Factor, finishing in 4th place. Known for her unusual yet beautifully soulful voice, Vickers impressed the judges with her take on the Damien Rice song "The Blower's Daughter", resulting in judge Louis Walsh to refer to her as a "hippie".She continued to impress through bootcamp and made it to Judges' Homes with Cheryl Cole as her mentor.Both Burke and JLS went on to have success relatively quickly, but for Ms Vickers things took a little longer.While it was initially announced that Vickers would sign to Syco along with JLS and Eoghan Quigg, those plans were later scuppered."He has clearly fallen hook, line and sinker for Diana but she seems a bit more wary at the moment."They are both very young and perhaps a cooling-off period is not a bad thing."It seems clear that Diana still has a lot of unfinished issues with her ex Chris Jones, and Eoghan will be pushed into the background for now.In search for employment, Dorian Lord (Claire Malis) hires Marco as a personal assistant, briefly engaging in a romantic affair with him.Marco engages in constant schadenfreude in Karen's anxiety over the possibility of the con man telling Larry of all the sordid details of their prior criminal behavior.The newspaper reported that Chris is desperate to rekindle the romance.He also reportedly stuck the boot into Eoghan by backing rival finalists JLS, writing on Facebook: "JLS to win - come on boys!On doctors' orders, Vickers didn't perform that week, and the judges gave her a pass, the first time a contestant had been excused due to illness.Vickers came back to perform in week six, and in week seven she took on the Take That song "Patience", which impressed future judge Gary Barlow so much that he offered to sign her if Simon Cowell didn't want to, which Cowell declined.It's the news he does not want to hear."Vickers has insisted she was not unfaithful to Jones, despite the widely-pictured kiss with her co-competitor from Derry, Northern Ireland. I'll tell Chris everything to do with me and Eoghan and I would never cheat on anyone in my life," she said.
