A Filipina carer, once part of a faceless crowd of foreign workers who tend to Israel's infirm and elderly, has surprised the country by winning one of its most popular TV singing contests.

Competing in Israel's X Factor, Rose Fostanes, 47, impressed the judges with a rendition of Frank Sinatra's My Way on Tuesday night's live final.
