It seems Kitty Brucknell has won herself at least one celebrity fan, in the shape of X Factor blabbermouth Sinitta. The So Macho singer, who helped out Louis Walsh at judges' houses this year, said this week she loved the kooky performer, describing Kitty as a "genius".

Sinitta revealed to Now magazine how she hadn't seen any of the contestants' auditions when judges' houses was filmed, resulting in Kitty's performance leaving quite an impression.

She said: "Because I didn't see the auditions and didn't know whether they liked her or not, I sat there by the pool and thought, 'She has an amazing voice'. She's a great performer and I really like her.

"She's pure drama queen. She sang 'Beautiful Disaster' by Kelly Clarkson and I actually thought it could be her. Kitty is tragically beautiful, destructive, but genius."

Meanwhile axed contestant Amelia Lily showed no grudges against the wacky contestant staying in Sunday night.

"Obviously with Kitty, she's a complicated character and people either love her or hate her. But you know what? That girl has a voice on her," she told Digitalspy.

"She's born to be on that stage. She's 26 and she's worked and worked to get where she is now. I think she's an inspiration for many young girls. She's wanted this for so long."
