X Factor 2011: Kitty escaped last week's bottom two by just 0.5%

Kitty Brucknell

It seems like those 126 votes for herself may well have kept Kitty Brucknell out of The X Factor bottom two last week, as it's claimed she avoided the danger zone by just 0.5%. According to the Daily Star, Kitty polled 5% of the above, only just above Frankie.

The judges saved the teenager over boy group Nu Vibe, who became the first to leave as a result of the public vote.

Of course it should be pointed out that last year the Daily Star claimed Wagner topped the votes, when he never managed any higher than seventh, so the veracity of the report remains to be seen.

Ok, it's almost certainly bulls**t.
