X Factor's Kitty Brucknell is still going strong

Kitty Brucknell

X Factor star Kitty Brucknell has become a hit.. in China.

The wacky performer always was our favourite on the show back in 2011, and it seems that the series has set her up well.

Since leaving the show Kitty has been putting on shows across the world, and is now preparing for a homecoming gig of sorts in Leeds, with tickets on sale now.

"Kitty captivated audiences with her outstanding theatrical performances, setting a new standard in scale and quality of production for X Factor 2011," we're told.

And apparently, "Mention "Kitty" to anyone, and they will instantly know you are talking about the 26 year old Kitty Brucknell, who became a household name in a few short months."

While we wouldn't go quite that far, we still do love her.

And Kitty's not the only X Factor 2011 alumni who's gone on to success.

The Risk's debut single 'Missiles' is out now on iTunes and is already in the Top 40 according to the latest midweek chart flashes.

Charlie Healy, Andy Merry and Derry Mensah all entered 2011’s X-Factor as solo artists before joining together to form The Risk at the competition’s boot camp stage. Later mentored by Tulisa, fourth member Ashford Campbell joined their ranks during the live shows after the sudden shock departure of Ashley Baptiste.

If the boys make it into the official chart come Sunday night, they'd become of the first bands to not reach the final in X Factor and still chart independently.

The boys have managed to do this off the back of a steady fanbase built on Twitter.
