Sam Bailey was "gutted" when Beyonce didn't speak to her when she supported her in concert

Beyonce never spoke to her tour support act.

The 'Formation' singer left British 'X Factor' winner Sam Bailey "gutted" when she didn't acknowledge her at all backstage when the 38-year-old singer opened for her in Birmingham during her 2014 'Mrs. Carter' tour.

Sam told Closer magazine: "I'm not going to lie, anyone would be gutted.

"I would have loved Beyonce to have signed something and said thanks for her support artist. I'd have had the decency to say hello."

While Sam hasn't got a friendship with Beyonce, she has remained very close to Sharon Osbourne, who mentored her on 'The X Factor' and is godmother to her and husband Craig Pearson's third child, 20-month-old Miley.

Sam said: "Whenever Sharon is in the UK she lets me know.

"She keeps tabs on me, which is so nice. When I performed in London she sent a massive bouquet of red roses to my dressing room."

And the 'Skyscraper' singer - who is also mum to Brooke, 10, and six-year-old Tommy - also counts Katie Price and Danny Dyer as friends.

She said: "Katie and I are similar creatures, apart from the fact she looks so glamorous and I just look like a mum.

"But I think she likes that I'm normal and nothing will change me. We sometimes have a sleepover at her house.

"I took my eldest, Brooke, to Katie and Kieran [Hayler]'s wedding and she was hanging out with Junior and Princess - I didn't see her all night.

"I speak to Danny a bit - I'm really good friends with Jo [Mas, his fiance]. I try to keep it cool with my celeb friends."
