'X Factor' Tulisa: 'I feared for Louis Walsh's life'

By
Tulisa Contostavlos has admitted she was concerned for Louis Walsh when an X Factor act lashed out at the judges on the ITV1 reality show.

It was reported earlier this year by the tabloids that Pink impersonator Zoe Alexander had an emotional breakdown on the stage after being snubbed by the judges.

Alexander had a tantrum on stage and pushed a cameraman and producers. She told the press that she felt "suicidal" after the audition.

Speaking about their dealings with the young singer at yesterday's series nine launch, Tulisa said: "I didn't fear for my safety. I feared for Louis's.

"She seemed like a tough cookie and out of all the judges, I thought Louis was the one who probably needed defending."

Walsh claimed that he was stunned by the singer's behaviour, commenting: "We were nice to her! She came out looking like Pink and she sang a Pink song."

The X Factor series nine launches on Saturday at 8pm on ITV1.
