X Factor's Kitty Brucknell had liposuction to look like Britney Spears
26 August 2011X Factor contestant Kitty Brucknell has revealed that she had liposuction in order to emulate her idols slim figure. Brucknell, who wowed the judges with an acappela version of Lady Gagas Edge of Glory, was voted through to boot camp despite her strange antics. The 26-year-old has since revealed that she spent £3,000 on liposuction surgery to have six litres of fat removed so that she could look slimmer and more like her idol Britney Spears. On the opening night of the new X Factor, the wannabe pop star initially seemed humbled by the prospect of performing in front of 4,000 people at the 02 Arena in London, but quickly settled in after the judges favourable comments. She started by sitting on the front of the stage, and then appeared to unleash a long stream of consciousness. Judge and N-Dubz singer Tulisa Contostavlos commented that the contestant liked to speak a lot before putting her through, while fellow judge and international pop sensation Kelly Rowland warned her not to lose sight of the person she was when she first came on stage.
