X Factor contestant Kitty Brucknell has been accused of making a racist slur against The Risk member Derry Menash in an argument between the pair backstage at the weekend, with complaints over the incident being made to the show's production team.
According to The Sun, Kitty told him during the row: "You evil black b******, f*** you Derry."
"Kitty was resting on a sofa when Derry came in and demanded she move," a source explained to the newspaper. "He kept asking and pestering her to move.
"Kitty was furious and shouting about needing to sleep. She got up and stormed out. On the way out, she shouted at him before slamming the door."
Kitty vehemently denied the allegations and show bosses have insisted the matter has been resolved.
