X Factor's Alton out of hospital

The X Factor contestant Abi Alton has revealed she is out of hospital, after she fell during the show.

The 19-year-old singer was taken to hospital on an ambulance stretcher after she tripped and fell down some stairs on set, which were connected to the stage.

"Out of hospital and thankfully there is no serious damage," she tweeted.

The aspiring singer from north Yorkshire thanked her fans, adding: "Thanks for your lovely messages, I'm sure will be right as rain in no time."

Abi previously wrote: " I fell down some stairs, landed on the edge of one on my back - thankful it's not worse + confident i'll continue performing."

A statement from the show added: "Abi Alton went to hospital as a precaution after Sunday night's show having slipped on some stairs backstage."

Her performance of Kylie Minogue's Can't Get You Out Of My Head had mixed reactions from the judges, with Gary Barlow saying: "Very brave. Musically it was a little bit sleepy for me tonight. Not the best song choice for your voice..."
