"The winner of this year's 'X Factor' will be joining me on the Mrs Carter tour, coming back to Europe in February. I can't wait to see you soon. Good luck!"

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he revealed: "I am worried about the stress and strain on Nicholas. He has this serious heart condition. I worry about that for the weekend, honestly.
"There is nothing we an do. He is working really hard - we are just going to give him some time off.
"I think his family are worried but we want him there in the final ... You just don't know [how serious it could be]. When somebody dies, they're dead."
