  • Teenage star has threatened to pull out over comments from Louis Walsh

    In the latest dramatic turn of events, teenage star Lloyd Daniels has threatened to quit the X Factor.

    After singing for his survival three times, it seems the stress has got too much and the star is thinking about walking out of the competition. 

    It comes after harsh comments from Louis Walsh on Sunday night.


    Obviously annoyed about losing final act John and Edward, the judge said he was shocked the young singer was not in the bottom two, adding, ‘I can’t believe Lloyd is still here.’

    The star was reportedly distraught after the show, telling producers, ‘I’m going, I can’t carry on’

    An insider said, Lloyd was in a terrible state after the show. It has got a bit too much for him. Being told that you belong in the bottom two is devastating for any of the contestants and Lloyd is really young.

    ‘Also, when he was not put into the bottom two, the audience started booing loudly, which is a lot to take on for a young lad.’

    With just three weeks left, the pressure is really on for the remaining artists.

    And it’s not just Lloyd who has shown cracks under the strain – last week Danyl Johnson stormed out of a rehersal in a row over song choices.
