X Factor's Kitty Brucknell "eternally grateful" to Louis Walsh for saving her!

There aren't many good things Louis Walsh does on The X Factor, but in our eyes he potentially redeemed himself last night by saving Kitty Brucknell from the chop, and the kooky singer herself agrees. Writing on twitter, Kitty said she was "eternally grateful" to the music mogul for keeping her in the competition over Sami Brookes.

In reality it was a situation that never should have happened, with both Sami and Kitty putting in great performances during Saturday's show. Indeed, together with Johnny, the Overs have arguably become the strongest category at the moment.

However it's the public votes that count, and with Kitty and Sami both in the bottom two, Louis opted to save the wacky Britney Spears look-a-like.

Kitty wrote: "Louis, thank you so much for saving me. I'm eternally grateful, thank you thank you. I am staying fearless and remind myself that every day."

And thanking fans for their backing, the 26-year-old also revealed she'd be missing Sami a lot on the show, adding: "Thank u so much for all your support last night. I'm devastated that Sammi has gone, she was my close friend and I will miss her a lot."
