Summer at Hamilton Park Racecourse is going to be a star-studded affair as singing sensations Sam Bailey and Jay James take centre stage this July.

The former X Factor contestants will raise temperatures at the Lanarkshire venue’s summer racenight, sponsored by the Sunday Mail, on Saturday 11 July with a series of live performances following an evening of first class action on the track.

The stars have been unveiled as one of the entertainment highlights in this year’s action-packed SuperSeal Season 2015.

Sam Bailey, who scooped the winner’s crown in the X Factor finals in 2013 with over one million votes, will perform her number one hit Skyscraper as well as songs from her album The Power of Love.

She will be joined by former Royal Navy fitness instructor Jay James from the 2014 series, who was recently named one of the top ten ‘Hottest Hunks of 2015’ by Heat magazine readers. The ladies’ favourite will wow crowds with a show-stopping performance guaranteed to get visitors on their feet.

Race goers and fans are advised to get booked early for the event with tickets predicted to go fast.

Vivien Kyles, Chief Executive at Hamilton Park Racecourse, said: “Sam Bailey and Jay James won over the hearts of millions when they were on the X Factor and I’m sure they will do exactly the same with our visitors when they star at our summer racenight this July.  This event is a must see for the summer calendar and I’m sure both acts will hit the right note with fans and visitors looking for an exciting evening of racing that culminates in a show stopping finale. We can’t wait to open our gates and welcome them to our venue.”

Fellow former X Factor contestant Jake Quickenden had been scheduled to appear at the event, but has withdrawn due to television commitments.
