Kitty Brucknell admits she wanted to ''slap'' herself when she first saw her audition - where she sat on the stage and revealed she wanted to be chased by paparazzi - for 'The X Factor'
Kitty Brucknell wanted to "slap" herself when she watched her 'X Factor' audition back.
The eccentric singer - who sat on the stage after performing a version of Lady Gaga's 'Edge of Glory' in front of judges Gary Barlow, Tulisa, Kelly Rowland and Louis Walsh - initially thought she had been "really harshly edited" when it went live, but now admits she did not show the best side of herself.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I watched my first audition for the first time this week and even I wanted to slap me. I hated it. I thought it had been really harshly edited but actually they were very kind to me.
"I knew I wasn't the best singer in the world and so I had to stand out in some way and that was my way of doing it."
The former Britney Spears impersonator was in the bottom two last week, but beat Sami Brookes to be saved by the judges, and she has revealed she is unlikely to keep changing her look and style every week as it would be boring.
She added: "There's absolutely no way I'll be coming out and saying this is the new me this week. How boring. I can't think of anything worse. I am a very strong person and I know the kind of artist I want to be. At some point I will strip it back but in a very cool way. For now, I'm bringing the crazy."
Meanwhile, girlband Rhythmix have officially changed their name after dispute with a charity of the same name, announcing they are to now be called Little Mix.
Writing on twitter, the group said: "We're really excited to announce that as of now our new name is Little Mix! We came up with this name with Tulisa, and we love it-hope our Little Mixers like it too!(sic)"
