Lucy Spraggan has quit The X Factor.
The singer, who is mentored by Tulisa, announced she will not be returning to the competition as she is not well enough.
Lucy said: “I am gutted not to be able to continue on this journey but I’m not well enough to perform.
“To accept another free pass having missed last weekend would not be fair on the others in the competition.
She added: “There is no way that this setback will prevent me from fulfilling my ambition. You’ll be hearing from me again very soon.”
Tulisa said: “I’m so sorry to lose Lucy from the competition, I have had a brilliant time working with her. I hope I can continue to mentor her in the future.
“I now count her as a friend as she is an amazing girl.”
Despite rumours stating otherwise, The X Factor bosses have said that Lucy Spraggan will not be replaced in the competition and one act will leave the show tomorrow. RM
