X Factor 2011: Kitty Brunknell in Race Row?

The front pages of tomorrow’s newspapers have been released and The Sun is leading on a X Factor exclusive.

The front page of Tuesday’s paper is reporting that X Factor contestant Kitty Brunknell is at the centre of a X Factor Race Row involving a member of The Risk.

The text on the front page reads: “X Factor bosses launched a probe after singer Derry Mensah claimed he was racially abused by rival Kitty Brunknell.

“Derry, 20, thought she called him an ‘evil black b******’ during a row, Kitty, 26, strongly denied it.”


The Daily Mirror’s Deputy TV Editor, Mark Jefferies has been tweeting about this story in the last few minutes and said: “Just spoke to @kittybrucknell and she strongly denies using any racist term towards @OfficialDerry in their row last week.

“On Derry/Kitty, XF say: ‘There was an argument between two contestants which was looked into. The matter has been resolved.’

“The ‘race row’ happened when Derry barged into rehearsal room Kitty was in, so only the two of them know what was said…”

So it looks like it’s all been sorted out.. Although Mark did tweet some good news regarding the bust-up between Kelly and Tulisa: “Lovely @KELLYROWLAND and @officialtulisa are talking again! Kelly called Tulisa on Sunday and they “cleared the air.”
