X Factor 2012: Homeless Robbie Hance 'missing'

Robbie Hance

Homeless X Factor hopeful Robbie Hance has reportedly 'gone missing' after wowing the show's judges.

The 26-year-old unemployed is seen performing for The X Factor judges on tonight’s final audition show.

Speaking before his audition, he tells the judges: “[I've been performing] Since I was a kid, I stand in the middle of the street and I sing, it’s the every second thought you know?”

And he reveals: “My current status at the moment is I am homeless.”

He explains: “I’ve been homeless for about 6 years on and off. 2 nights out of every fortnight like I’ll stay somewhere like a friend’s house or something but the rest of the time I’m kicking out on the street. I sleep in doorways, alleyways just trying to keep dry.

“As a child I felt like I was a big burden on people, I grew up in a single mother family, she had three jobs that she used to work every week, it took its toll on her so I was put into care at 13 years old. I never really gelled with any of the families or the people that I got put with so it’s easier for me to shut myself away and just put my brain into things I love to do. I have always sung, I don’t think there is anything else in my life that I do with such passion. This competition is obviously a big thing, it could add the element of security, it could change my life, definitely.

However according to the Daily Mirror today, show bosses have lost contact with the singer and have been unable to reach him.

A show insider told the newspaper today: “He’s a fantastic artist and he blew everyone away at auditions.

“He doesn’t have a phone and the only point of contact was through a friend. Producers last spoke to him on Monday but they can no longer reach his friend and have no idea where he is. It’s a real worry.

“If he doesn’t get in touch by the end of next week, then he’d have to kiss goodbye to any part in the show, which would be a tragedy.”
