X Factor 2016: Emily Middlemas gets tips from current winner Louisa Johnson


Emily Middlemas has been getting tips from former X Factor winner Louisa Johnson.

The pair met up when Emily and boyfriend Ryan Lawrie attended a Halloween concert during some downtime last week.

Emily spilled: "Thursday is like our day off so it was a really fun night. It was cool to go to a concert with Ryan because the only one we've been to before is Rihanna.

"I met Louisa Johnson there. She won The X Factor last year and was so lovely. She just told me to enjoy the the time I've had on the show."

Speaking to new! magazine, Emily admitted that the time off was nice as the competition continues to heat up.

She explained: "Our week is intense because we get our results on a Sunday night, and by Monday morning we've already been given our next song and working on our performance.

"After Gifty left we realised anyone can go, no matter how good they are, so I'm definitely feeling the pressure."

It's not just Gifty who has left of course with Relley C and Four Of Diamonds also exiting the competition in recent weeks, leaving a very empty house.

Emily said: "It's so weird in the house now because it's just me, Sam and Saara [sharing a room]. It's really quiet without Gifty and Relley. At the start of the competition it was so hectic, and you could hear everyone!"

The X Factor 2016 is back this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM with Disco week.

As well as new performances from the final seven acts, there will be guest appearances from Olly Murs and Nathan Sykes.
