Is Katie Waissel returning to X Factor after Celebrity Big Brother?

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Katie Waissel has hinted she may be back on our screens on The X Factor this year.

Or perhaps she's just hoping.

The recent Celebrity Big Brother housemate has said she plans to move back to London with her husband and wants to appear on telly more.

"I'd love to do more TV work," Katie told Closer magazine.

She added: "You never know, I might be presenting bits on X Factor this year."

Katie appeared on The X Factor back in 2010 and made it through to the live shows but it was tough going for her.

"I wanted to keep a low profile," she recalled. "I went from being a regular person who just wanted to sing to being in the papers and magazines every day.

"It's not something that's easy to deal with, especially when it's negative. I wasn't prepped on how to cope with it."

However the singer says the public perception of her has changed dramatically since Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5 this summer.

"It's really good to finally feel accepted," Katie explained. "Which is something I've been longing for.

"Since I've come out, a lot of people have said: 'I thought you were a certain way on The X Factor, but actually you're really sweet and lovely and down to earth', It's been really cool."
