A tabloid report claims that singer Katie Waissel threatened to quit The X Factor. The Mirror claims that the singer threatened to quit the competition following a backlash against her by viewers. Producers on the X Factor allowed Waissel to visit her parents following the weekend’s first live shows. On Sunday evening Katie Waissel was saved by Cheryl Cole, Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh who opted to keep her in over group F.Y.D. However, the decision to save her proved to be a controversial one with some X Factor fans who were not impressed with the judges and are still not entirely happy Waissel was put through to the live shows over singer Gamu Nhengu.
“Katie was really down after the weekend and was saying on Monday she would walk away from the show if they continue to make her wear crazy outfits and portray her badly. She blames the show for making it look like it was her against Gamu for the live finals, when it was all the girls against each other. Katie really wants to turn things around and get the public on side and she has been hurt by all the criticism….She has even been given special permission to go home to see her parents and sister for some morale support and some affection to help her get her confidence back.” – An ‘Insider’ quoted in The Mirror
Katie Waissel is now planning to go ‘back to basics’ and drop the gimmicks in order to win the public vote. However, she is the second favourite with some bookmakers this week to be booted out of The X Factor on Sunday. If she comes out bottom again in the public vote will the judges save her once more?
