Robert Pattinson helped choose sister's X Factor songs
X Factor contestant Lizzy Pattinson has revealed that her brother, actor Robert Pattinson, has been giving her advice for the ITV show. The 31-year-old also confessed that her future on the show is uncertain after she fell ill before filming for the Judge's Houses episode, which airs on ITV this weekend
Robert Pattinson helped to choose the songs his sister performed on 'The X Factor'.
Lizzy Pattinson has revealed her Hollywood star sibling has been aiding her in deciding what tracks to perform on the ITV talent contest and impress the judges Mel B, Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
The 31-year-old singer explained: "I just sent him a link to the songs for Judges' Houses and he said, 'They sound really cool.' One of the songs was quite obscure and he thought it was really good."
Lizzy - who is being mentored by Simon - also admitted that the 'Twilight' heartthrob has been really supportive during her time on the programme, and has been giving her tips to improve.
She added: "I am surprised how interested he is in it.
"He watched the first episode I was in. He gave me feedback and that meant a lot to me."
However, Lizzy's future on the show is unclear, as she was struck down with illness the day before travelling to Simon Cowell's Los Angeles home for the next round of auditions.
She said: "I started feeling ill the day before I left and it all came out at the wrong time. I did some swimming in the ocean, which probably didn't help.
"I didn't feel like I had any control of my higher range. I didn't know what note was going to come out. So I probably pushed it more than I would have normally."
The Judge's Houses episodes of 'The X Factor' will air on ITV this weekend.
