X Factor's Kirsty Murphy reveals she's had threats after audition room break in

x factor act storms auditions  - 2

X Factor's Kirsty Murphy has endured '48 hours of hell' since the weekend's show.

21 year-old dance teacher Kirsty from Wirral made herself known to the judges on Saturday night by bursting into the auditions room after being told by producers she wouldn't be seen.

"I really want to sing to you guys and they're saying they've got no time for me to sing," she sobbed. "I know you want a fighter and I'm here to fight."

Simon Cowell reacted: "There's an X, sing."

Despite her break in, Kirsty went on to get three yeses from the judges to make it into boot camp, although Sharon Osbourne said no.

On Sunday we saw Kirsty bow out of the competition at the bootcamp stages, failing to make it through to six chairs.

Since the show aired, Kirsty has revealed how she's become the target of threats online and even over the phone.

“I feel disappointed because my audition made out I was a horrible person,” she said this week. “Since then I’ve had trolling online and threats made to me through voicemail.

“The threats I’ve had, is it worth it? I’m a singer.

“It’s been 48 hours of hell.”

Speaking to local newspaper the Wirral Globe, Kirsty ruled out trying for the show again after her "overwhelming" experience this year.

“In a way I’d love to go on again. I would like the chance to portray myself in a good light. But everything is so overwhelming," she explained. “It’s like my audition was two minutes and those two minutes have changed people’s opinions of me forever.

“I think I’m going to find my career route the old-school way as opposed to the talent show option.

“I’ll start writing tracks and sending them in to record labels, performing at gigs and carry on doing what I am already doing.”

The X Factor continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV with the six chair challenge.
