SINGING sisters Nicola and Francine Gleadall have been made honorary members of a Derbyshire rotary club.

The girls, aged 21, who became household names when they appeared on the X Factor, have signed up to the Rotary Club of Drone in their home town of Dronfield.

Rotary district governor Val Leivers came up with the idea after hearing the girls sing at the club’s charter dinner at Crich Tramway Museum.

The club wanted to say thank you to the pair for their help and support over the years.

The duo first shot at fame on the X Factor when they fought off competition from tens of thousands of hopefuls to get through to the boot camp stage of the contest.

The identical twins, former pupils at Dronfield’s William Levick School, were then runners-up in BBC show Your Country Needs You to find a contestant for the Eurovision Song Contest.

The girls were presented with framed rotary club certificates at The Talbot Arms pub in Dronfield Woodhouse.
