X Factor bosses removed Lucy Spraggan's songs from iTunes to make competition 'fair'

Lucy Spraggan (X Factor 2012)

X Factor hopeful Lucy Spraggan has revealed she was asked to remove her songs from iTunes by show bosses.

Speaking to press earlier today, Lucy explained that she was invited into a conversation with producers after her song Last Night began to climb up the charts.

20-year-old Lucy was number two with her song Last Night, which she performed during her audition, having sold around 20,000 copies this week.

Gary had raved at her original audition: "I loved your song, what a fantastic songwriter you are, when you listed all those drinks it’s just like a regular night out for Tulisa!"

But while the judges were impressed, it seems that some people backstage weren't happy with the song doing so well.

"I was asked to by the pope behind the the x factor [to remove the songs]," Lucy said. "We had a discussion, and to make it fair we decided to take it away for a bit. I took it down as soon as they said, or asked rather."

Lucy also insisted she wouldn't let her love of drinking lead her astray if she made it any further in the show.

Asked about comparisons to last year's Frankie Cocozza, Lucy hit back: "I'm not out of control! But I am going to have a drink, you gotta have a laugh.

She added: "I'd love to partying with Tulisa, everybody wants to party to with Tulisa in Ibiza, I would love to do that."
