X Factor's Kitty Brucknell is apparently seeing a psychiatrist over supposed "bullying" from her rivals and viewers, the Daily Star has reported today. According to the newspaper, Kitty has been on the phone to shrink hours every day admitting her fears about the show.

A supposed pal of the 26-year-old told the newspaper: “Kitty has been suffering panic attacks for weeks.

“She calls her counsellor every few hours. She sees the sessions as the one thing saving her from a breakdown.”

The former Britney Spears impersonator has been "bombarded" with hate mail from viewers, and after being in the bottom two at the weekend, is feeling the pressure.

The X Factor needs to be careful. That level of fame can be devastating for people already on the edge," This Morning doctor Chris Steele told the tabloid.
