Finnish Saara says she is loving her time in London and had a blast when she attended a LGBT event that means a lot to her.

“Last week Meri and I were invited to a Stonewall event, which is the largest LGBT charity in Europe. It works to protect and further the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. It’s a cause very close to our hearts. We were thrilled to meet everyone, find out more about the charity’s incredible work and also to catch up with some LGBT celebrities like Jodie Harsh and Gok Wan, and I was thrilled to chat with Seann Miley Moore from last year’s X-Factor.

Sara says that she sees a lot of her self in last year’s flamboyant star.

‘Yes, he is incredible,’ she said. ‘I had so much fun watching him slay it on the show last year. I have always been a huge fan of his, and it was wonderful to meet him. Like me, he brought something different and was from another country. We talked about the incredible support and warm welcome we have received from the British public. I can’t wait to see him again, it would be so much fun to collaborate with him in some way.’
