X Factor Kitty is cool in the pool

Eccentric X Factor contender Kitty Brucknell stays cool under the pressure at her judge's house by jumping in the pool.

Viewers on Saturday night's show will see the 26-year-old try to impress mentor Louis Walsh and pop veteran Sinitta with her version of Kelly Clarkson's Beautiful Disaster before leaping into the pool.

The singer, who describes herself as "a very controversial performer", tells host Dermot O'Leary she did it because "I'm hot and I waited all day to get in the pool".

Kitty, from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, is in Barcelona as one of the final eight acts in the over-25s section, but her performance - and the rest of her antics - leave Sinitta "confused" and Louis unsure.

Discussing her act with Sinitta, he said: "She blows it. I love her singing, I love her performance, I love her intensity but then she talks her way out of it."

All 32 remaining acts have been whisked off to glamorous locations as the judges prepare to reduce them to the final 16.

The groups are in Greece with Tulisa Contostavlos, Kelly Rowland has taken the girls to Miami and Gary Barlow is in Los Angeles with the boys.
