  Laura loses pop idol dream
Updated 06 January 2002, 12.13
Laura Doherty
Irish pop idol wannabe Laura Doherty obviously was not carrying her four leafed clover for luck on Saturday night as she was finally voted off Pop Idol by viewers.

The contestants had to sing a film theme tune of their choice. Laura, a part-time presenter back in her home town of Londonderry, chose Licence to Kill from the James Bond film which she hasn't even seen.

Sofa shame

The 20-year-old has been close to being kicked off and has faced the "sofa of shame" for three weeks.

Even judge Pete Waterman said she's "got away with murder" for getting so far.

But the cheery soul singer didn't seem too disappointed and flashed her smile as she thanked the audience and the show.

More of Aaron?

Aaron Bayley

Meanwhile, last week's reject, cheeky Geordie train driver Aaron Bayley, says he's been talking to a record producer.

He's also revealed he's talking to judge Dr Fox's agent about possible record deals.
