Katie Waissel threatened to quit X Factor and is allowed a home visit

By Clemmie Moodie and Mark Jefferies 13/10/2010


Katie Waissel threatened to quit The X Factor and has been allowed home to see her parents after she was hit with a backlash from viewers.

The emotional 24-year-old star narrowly avoided the chop at the weekend after being in the bottom three of the public vote - and only survived after ditching her gimmicky outfit.

Sources on the show said she now wants to go "back to basics" and will walk out if things do not change.

The insider revealed: "Katie was really down after the weekend and was saying on Monday she would walk away from the show if they continue to make her wear crazy outfits and portray her badly.

"She blames the show for making it look like it was her against Gamu for the live finals, when it was all the girls against each other.

"Katie really wants to turn things around and get the public on side and she has been hurt by all the criticism.

"She has a great voice and great potential but her week has got off to a bad start because she has a throat infection and so can't practice much.

"She has even been given special permission to go home to see her parents and sister for some morale support and some affection to help her get her confidence back."

Yesterday Katie and Cher Lloyd, 17, were both pictured outside a medical centre, where it's thought she saw a doctor about her poorly throat.

Both girls were wearing gold charm bracelets given to them by Cheryl Cole in a bid to keep them happy and give them confidence.

Sources say Cheryl has grown close to her acts in the last week and now feels she has a potential winner.

But Katie is likely to ignore the advice of the stylists who put her in a coloured helmet on Saturday and then tried to make her wear a giant crown for Sunday night's elimination.

"People need to be talking about Katie's voice and her performance, not some ridiculous costume, the source added.

"She just needs a solid hit song to sing on Saturday that can win her the votes and give her the confidence she needs to go forward."

However, bookmakers Ladbrokes and Paddy Power both have made Katie the 3-1 second favourite to be axed at the weekend.

So she threatened to walk out and they caved? I'd have booted her out on her arse for trying to hold people to ransom. No one likes the annoying, arrogant bitch anyway, she won't be missed.
