X Factor 2012: Lucy Spraggan still too ill to perform

Lucy Spraggan (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Lucy Spraggan faces elimination from the show, with her still being too ill to perform on the show.

The Irish Independent report that Lucy has yet to return to ANY rehearsals this week, with just one full day left before the next performance show.

If she fails to improve in time for Saturday, the newspaper reports that Lucy will be forced to quit the competition.

The 21-year-old hasn't been seen with the finalists all week as they attend glam events including the Cosmo awards, instead she's stuck in the hotel room trying to get better.

Speaking at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Woman Of The Year Awards earlier this week, Lucy's pal Rylan revealed she was still sick and it could force her out of the show.

"She's (Lucy) is my priority at the moment. I'm at home looking after her. She's a bit under the weather. Her health comes first and the show comes second at the moment so if she's well enough to perform this weekend, then fantastic," Rylan said.

But Rylan explained that if Lucy wasn't well enough, it could see her leaving the show.

"If not, it will be the right reason for her to leave but we're all here for her," he added.

He said: "It's just the medication she's on and how she's reacting. As long as she gets through that she'll be back on that stage fighting fit."

But it seems like the damage is already done, with William Hill cutting Lucy's odds of being eliminated this week to 5/1, behind only Kye Sones and Rylan Clark.

The latest results show follows on Sunday evening, which will feature performances from Rita Ora and No Doubt, as well as one more act being given the boot.
