A grandmother who was booted off X-Factor by Simon Cowell has been laid to rest at a Star Wars themed funeral by undertakers dressed as Darth Vader and Stormtroopers in Worcestershire.

Brenda Morris, 78, shot to fame following her flamboyant performance of Pink's So What on the ITV talent show in 2010.

She told judges Louis Walsh, Dannii Minogue, Cheryl and Simon that 'I think I could win the X-Factor'.

However, the retired chemistry lecturer was kicked off stage just seconds into her gravelly audition after being told: 'We've already got a Kylie'. 

Eleven years later, she said her final wish was for a Star Wars funeral after being informed she could not donate her body to medical science.

Brenda Morris appeared on ITV talent show X-Factor to perform Pink's SO What at the age of 67 back in 2010
