Kylie: I'm rooting for Rebecca

Kylie Minogue has confessed she's rooting for Rebecca Ferguson to win this year's X Factor.

The pop princess revealed in an interview with comedian Alan Carr for more! magazine that although she is supporting sister Dannii Minogue, who is mentoring the boys, she really likes Rebecca.

Kylie revealed: "Obviously I'm Team Minogue, but I have to say, Rebecca really stands out this year as one of my favourites."

She added: "Matt [Cardle] is really amazing. He had a bad week a couple of weeks ago, but he's really come back, and nailed his songs."

Speaking about the pressure the contestants are under, Kylie said: "It never used to be like this so soon, did it? It was more like they were normal people until the end of the show, and now they're celebs immediately. I just can't imagine what it's like for them. It's such a head spin and whirlwind."

Kylie, who is dating Spanish model Andres Velencoso, revealed she is gripped by the show.

She said: "I don't go out at weekends any more! It's TV dinners every Saturday and Sunday. If my boyfriend's round, I rope him into watching it with me. I'm like, 'No sport tonight honey, sorry, it's The X Factor!"
