X Factor eccentric and all round-mentalist Kitty Brucknell looks a little bit stressed leaving her hotel after the X Factor live Tour in Birmingham.
The Lady Gaga lover was leaving the establishment with the rest of the X Factor crew and looks absolutely knackered. Maybe the hectic schedule of the tour has taken its toll or she’s just contemplating what she’s going to do next.
X Factor 2011’s Kitty, 26, always struck us as a Darius-type contestant. Outrageously confident and with such sheer bloody-mindedness, we started to believe in the possibility she could be a little bit successful. Plus who didn’t love her exhibitionist ways? Great TV that was.
The concept of the X Factor runner-up making good can be traced all the way back to Pop Idol. To be precise, Darius Danesh. Colourblind singer Darius stunned us with his hideous ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’ audition and then went on to make cringe-inducing claims to the judges that he would ‘go platinum’.
It was all a bit Andrew Stone (if he’d existed then), until Darius actually went platinum (with his first album in 2004). His CV ended up including 'West End stage actor', 'Sunday Times best-selling author', and 'Ambassador for The Prince's Trust'.
If pop stardom doesn’t beckon, perhaps Kitty will reignite her Britney-impersonator career. We look forward to finding out.
Will Kitty follow in Darius footsteps or is it back to the drawing board (working men’s clubs) for her?
