Katie Wassiel debuted her latest reinvented self yesterday as she peformed her debut single 'The Ugly Truth' on Alan Titchmarsh's afternoon chat show. Showing off her longer blonde hair do, the 24-year-old spoke about her tough time on last year's show and admitted: "I didn’t know what I was doing."
"I don’t understand where [the negative attention] all came from. It did get quite bad at some points," she said in the interview. "I think one of the lowest points was when I was in the car on the way to the studios for rehearsal and I got a phone call saying I had to go back to the house because there had been serious death threats against me with which the police had to get involved.
"It was obviously really scary but at the same time I just thought, 'I’m on The X Factor, why would somebody do that?' I couldn’t get my head around it."
Katie, who released her debut album a few weeks back, added: "In a way it made me more determined but in another way it knocked my confidence for six – I didn’t know what I was doing."
