X Factor star Shelley Smith passes outX Factor hopeful Shelley Smith has revealed that she was so unwell leading up to the live show on Saturday that she passed out.

Shelley, who was voted off the ITV talent show at the weekend, confessed that she was so ill that she passed out on Friday while rehearsing her rendition of Beyonce’s Single Ladies.

The singer revealed: ‘There’s been a virus going around the house – I was really ill – the day before, I passed out, we’ve all been passing out! I passed out but I got on that stage and I was just glad that I got round that routine and sung my little heart out!’

And poor Shelley wasn’t the only X Factor contestant suffering this weekend, pregnant Miss Dynamix hopeful SeSe Foster was rushed to hospital just hours before Saturday’s live show after falling ill. The band didn’t have to perform and didn’t face the public vote.
