X Factor 2014: Lizzy Pattinson gets tips from brother Robert Pattinson

Lizzy Pattinson

X Factor's Lizzy Pattinson has been getting help from her brother on the show.

Lizzy is the older sister of Twlight star Robert Pattinson and has been getting tips from the actor.

Speaking ahead of judges' houses, Lizzy revealed this week: “I sent him a link to the songs for Judges’ Houses and he said, ‘They sound really cool’. One of the songs was quite obscure and he thought it was really good.”

She admitted to The Sun newspaper: “I am surprised how interested he is in it.

“He watched the first episode I was in. He gave me feedback and that meant a lot to me.”

Meanwhile, Lizzy has told her chances of making the live shows were left in jeopardy after she was struck down with sickness at Simon Cowell's judges' houses in America.

“I started feeling ill the day before I left and it all came out at the wrong time. I did some swimming in the ocean, which probably didn’t help," she said. “It could have come from anywhere, and maybe subconsciously I was a bit nervous about everything.

“I didn’t feel like I had any control of my higher range. I didn’t know what note was going to come out. So I probably pushed it more than I would have normally.”

The X Factor airs this Friday, Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
