Kerry McGregor is a Scottish singer from West Lothian, who was a contestant in the UK TV show "The X Factor". McGregor was being mentored by Sharon Osbourne but was eliminated in the third week of the live shows along with Dionne Mitchell.

In September 2007 Kerry will be the face of Wheelie Chix - Chic, a clothing firm to be launched at the London fashion week and Kerry will also perform he latest recordings at this event. In 2008, Mcgregor appeared in Grange Hill.
