The mum of X Factor star Amelia Lily has said she's "disappointed" that organisers of the X Factor 2012 live tour haven't been able to organise a nurse to travel with her.

The singer, who finished third on last year's show, reportedly collapsed during the concert recently after getting tired and worn out.

While Amelia's mum Aranka Bradley insisted that the 18-year-old was "fine", she admitted she was worrying about her daughter and the gruelling tour schedule.

Amelia and eight other acts from last year's competition have been touring the UK and Ireland for the past month, and still have dates across the country including Birmingham, Brighton, London and Cardiff.

Aranka told local newspaper the Sunday Sun: "She is fine and fit and well.

“It was all on Twitter that she didn’t come back on stage at the end of the show because she had fainted. She probably didn’t go back on because she was tired, nothing more than that.”

Amelia's mum however admitted she was "disappointed" by the lack of a diabetic nurse on tour with the singer and other acts.

She told the publication: “I have a direct contact with Amelia’s diabetic nurse who is up here if I need to ask any questions.

“But there’s no nurse travelling with them which is a bit of a disappointment for me.

“If they go on tour again, a health nurse would be good. I would feel happier to have just somebody there to give her advice and somebody who is trained in diabetes care.”

The X Factor live tour continues in London this weekend.
