X Factor winner Sam Bailey has admitted she was "gutted" to be snubbed by Beyonce.

The singer had originally been set to take up a full support slot on Beyonce's UK leg of her current world tour but the shows clashed with The X Factor's own live arena shows, currently also touring the country.

In the end Sam went on to perform a similar set to the current X Factor tour with tracks including The Power Of Love, Clown, And I'm Telling You and her winner's song Skyscraper ahead of Beyonce's date in Birmingham last month.

But she didn't even get to say hello to the lady herself, explaining: "I was disappointed, and the kids were expecting to meet her.

"But I had a feeling before I went I wouldn’t meet her, there was so much security!”

Beyonce isn't the only one to have snubbed Sam recently as she revealed this week that X Factor boss Simon Cowell has yet to actually mean her.

The Compass singer said: "I haven't met Simon yet, that's going to be in the next few weeks so I'm very excited. I'm a bit nervous to be honest but it's going to be good. It's Simon Cowell. I've never met him before."

Sam releases her debut album The Power of Love this week.
