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.

Undermining a person's enthusiasm will only create resentment. If you're tired of being implicated in your loved one's harebrained schemes, have a heart to heart discussion. A temporary separation can help each of you figure out what you want from your relationship. It may be time for you to seek a more practical companion.More
