Lauren Platt might miss The X Factor due to illness
Wannabe singer Lauren Platt could miss Saturday night's performance of 'The X Factor' amid rumours that she is too ill to sing
Lauren Platt may be too ill to perform on 'The X Factor' this Saturday (29.11.14).
The 17-year-old wannabe pop star could potentially miss out on singing this weekend after being hit by a nasty bout of flu as the ITV production crew are unsure if she will be ready to perform on the live show.
Speaking about her condition, a source shared: "Lauren has been really ill. Earlier in the week we had to cancel an entire day of filming so she could go to bed."
However, the insider then revealed how a desperate Lauren is "determined" to keep her spot on the ITV competition, despite fears that singing will damage her voice for future shows.
The source told The Sun newspaper: "At the moment she is determined to sing tomorrow regardless and no one wants to tell her otherwise.
"[But] she is also worried that being ill will affect her performance if she goes on. The odds are really against her this week."
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Fleur East is dating fashion designer Marcel Badiane Robin.
The 26-year-old hopeful has reportedly been secretly seeing the French-born stylist - who has worked with the likes of Rita Ora and Jason Derulo - for several months.
A source told The Sun: "They have been dating for a while now and it is definitely serious.
"He is incredibly supportive of her X Factor success and wants her to go all the way, just as she is really supportive of his fashion career."
