Kitty Brucknell impressed judges with her performance at the weekend

X Factor contestant Kitty Brucknell worked as a honeytrap for a private detective agency, it has been reported.

The singer, who wowed the judges on Saturday's episode of the show, sang Lady Gaga's Edge Of Glory before being voted through to the next round.

Dalbir Virdee told the Sun he watched the ITV1 show and recognised Kitty as the same woman who approached him three years ago after being hired by his ex-wife.

He said she contacted him online before arranging to meet him on a date at upmarket store Harvey Nichols, in central London.

He said: "I had a feeling I was being set up. We had champagne, which she spilled down her front. I realise it was a ploy to get me to rub it off her."

Mr Virdee said photographs of him with Kitty were later used in his divorce.

Kitty, 26, from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, was one of the stars of the first episode of the hit show which was watched by a peak audience of 12.6 million - matching the record for the highest viewing figures for the opening night.

The show saw the debut of new judges Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland, who joined veteran Louis Walsh.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
