The parents of X Factor hopeful Janet Devlin have brushed off claims that police had foiled a plot to kidnap the teenager! It was claimed over the weekend that a pair of men had been planning to snatch the flame haired singer from the X Factor house in Hertfordshire.
Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, Janet's mum and dad revealed: “The show’s producers told us that they had been informed of two men talking in the bushes near the house but we were assured of Janet’s safety and to be honest, we don’t think there’s anything in it at all.
“As far as we’re concerned there is no threat to her and Janet herself is cool and calm and not taking it seriously at all.”
A spokesman for Hertfordshire police added to the newspaper: “We are well aware of the care that the X Factor producers take around the safety of their contestants and Hertfordshire police will always work with them to respond to any issues that emerge.”
