In between working hard to polish their performance to perfection, choir members were treated to a host of entertainment and activities by host Robbie.

The Liverpool Media Academy (LMA) Choir at Robbie Williams’ LA mansion, where they progressed to the live finals of X Factor 2018

Rachel Chambers, 25, from Anfield , said: “I’ll never forget performing in Robbie’s back garden and seeing all of Beverly Hills.

“After it, I felt proud because the performance went well. And with the scenery and the atmosphere it was just a dream come true.”

Choir founder Stephanie Wallace Carr said: “It was absolutely hands down the best experience of our lives. I think I can say that for myself and the whole choir. It was unbelievable.

“Robbie’s house is just breath-taking. Getting to meet him, more on a personal level, at his house was just an honour. And being able to perform in such a setting was phenomenal.”

LMA Choir’s progress through the 2018 series so far started with an audition at the SSE Arena, Wembley, where they were given a standing ovation by all four judges.

The group progressed to the nail-biting Six Chair Challenge where they fought off fierce competition to keep their seat in the Groups category.
