Florence Welch has revealed that her performance on the last series of The X Factor was "one of the most high-pressured things I've ever done".

The star sang on the show in November to promote her new Ceremonials album - and confessed that there were some mishaps on the night.

"Just before it went live one of the dancers' dresses got ripped and the stylist had to run on stage as they were counting down to the start," she told the Daily Star.

"I had to stay really still and it was one of the most high-pressured things I've ever done.

"I was freaking out inside - it was so frightening. We all talked about how much could go wrong - I'm surprised more doesn't happen with live TV performances."

And Florence - who has landed British female and best album nods for next month's Brit awards - admitted she was excited to meet one judge in particular.

"I was really excited to meet Tulisa - I think she's amazing," she said.

You're more motivated to help people than turn big profits. Some friends will discourage you from entering such a field, fearing it won't be lucrative. Don't worry. You'll make a very good salary by doing what you love. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be miserable to earn a good living.More
