With the final of the X Factor just days away, reports have revealed that finalist Amelia Lily is suffering from laryngitis.
Having reported that Marcus Collins had been suffering from the throat infection earlier this week, The Sun reports that Amelia, who has been at the centre of controversy over claims that the X Factor is fixed for her to win, is now feeling unwell.
Blaming the stress of the show, a source revealed: "She’s been under the most amount of pressure out of anyone and she’s just 17. She is fiercely ambitious but she hasn’t had the chance to grow up yet. Her voice is her biggest weapon but this week singing has started to hurt and she’s worried. It’s stress on top of stress.”
However, it is hoped that Amelia will be feeling more like herself once she goes home to Middlesbrough to perform at her homecoming gig this week.
The source added: "Amelia looks older than she is but you’ve got to remember she’s just a little girl. Everyone on set is rallying around her and it will do her good to go home to Middlesbrough this week and relax. She needs some time out.”
