Sinitta has revealed that Simon Cowell is furious with her after she launched a wildcard challenge for The X Factor without his permission.

Speaking to The Mirror, the 'So Macho' singer admitted that she may not be able to appear as a guest judge as planned, after a PR woman for the show allegedly cautioned her.

"She said the team were very angry and upset with me and that I had not done myself any favours," the star said.

"I know Simon is angry. He's been angry with me before but never like this in all the nearly 30 years I have known him. He usually rings and it's the call you dread."

Explaning her intentions, she added: "I am passionate about the show and I just wanted to help. I was just trying to help the thousands of hopefuls who never get on to The X Factor. I thought this was an opportunity for people to do it online, to upload their thing so everyone gets seen.

"I think Simon is upset because The X Factor is upset. It is a big brand and they want to protect the brand. I am sorry, Simon. If they don't want me on X Factor, I have to accept that."

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the show said of Sinitta's website: "It has absolutely nothing to do with The X Factor."
