Speaking to The Sun, her mum Lisa Borsa said:

I cried I was so happy. You see Alessia is so sincere and there is a lot of badness going on in the house. It’s incredible she is through to the final. She is only in Italy two years but got more votes from the public than some of the best known personalities on Italian TV.

Good woman Alessia. 

As big lovers of chips, telly and tales of Irish people making it big all over the world - we love this.

Macari to win!
