X-FACTOR contestant Annastasia Baker wowed a 500-strong audience performing for schoolkids at their awards ceremony in London’s East End.

Annastasia, a contestant in the current series of the popular reality show, got through the Boot Camp’ stage and went to judge Cheryl Cole’s home in Cannes, but didn’t get through to the finals.

The 19-year-old was happy, however, to perform at the annual Jack Petchey achievement awards at Bethnal Green’s York Hall last Tuesday (November 18).

“There was a great atmosphere,” she said afterwards. “It was such a great night with the young winners so proud to receive their awards.”

Nearly 200 award winners were joined by parents, friends and teachers, 17 of whom were also presented with Petchey Leader’ awards.

The event brought together 19 schools and colleges across Tower Hamlets in a scheme worth £70,000 a year for East End education. They have received £4.3m since the scheme began.
