X Factor sensation Lucy Spraggan is gay: Her mum is delighted

X Factor sensation Lucy Spraggan’s mum was delighted to learn she was gay, the singer revealed last night. But Lucy, who came out aged 14, says her grandad only realised she was attracted to girls when he read it on online. “My mum loves gay people, she thinks she’s part of the cool club now,” said Lucy. “But grandad only found out I was gay on Google.” And s

ingle girl Lucy hopes her new fame might make it easier to

find a girlfriend. She said: “X Factor must do wonders for your love life. Girls do love girls with guitars.” The 20-ye

ar-old accident-prone hopeful from Sheffield wowed judges on Saturday with Last Night, a song she wrote about her drunken antics. Lucy explained: “I woke up once

at Christmas and I’d cracked my head open on a metal bar after messing about with my mates. I went to hospital and had it glued and then we went out again.

This series is the first time singer- songwriters have featured, whi

They’re such big songs, that’s the kind of thing I’m into.” Viewing figures for Saturday’s ITV1 show wer

e dismal again. Bosses hoped the torrential rain would help them outshine last week’s poor ratings, but just

8.3 million tuned in. That’s only 200,000 up on the season opener and is a big drop on last year’s second ep

isode, which pulled in 10.1million viewers. One former fan said: “

After spending two weeks watching the Olympics I really didn’t want to go back to watching sub-par entertainment.” X Factor bosses will also be wary of Strictly Come Dancing’s return next month.
