X Factor 2011: Kitty Brucknell spent £50 on voting for herself!

X Factor's Kitty Brucknell did her best to avoid de elimination on Sunday night, helping herself out by voting 126 times! Spending almost £50 on phone votes, the kooky singer was apparently petrified of being the first to leave the show.

Whether it was those votes that saved Kitty isn't known, but it may have helped as the wacky singer escaped being in the bottom two.

"Kitty was so convinced that she was going to get the shove on Sunday that she just started dialling her own number," a source told The Sun. "It was a bit daft really — as you need thousands of votes to make a difference. But you can't blame her for trying.

"She is so desperate to stay in the show and, in fairness to her, the show kind of needs it.

"She's one of the only interesting acts on there."
