Cheryl And Katie ‘At War’
And the X Factor contestant is scared to go out after a fan attacked her...
This week all Elton Johnhits and Cheryl was said to be less than impressed when Katie rejected her song choice, The Bitch Is Back – a cheeky nod to last week’s show when she was saved in favour of Treyc Cohen.
Instead, Katie will sing Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting). “There were a couple of songs put forward to me. I liked the fighting spirit of the songs, but one goes a little too far,” she explained. “Do you know what? You can push things too far.”
The 24-year-old admitted she and Cheryl didn’t always see eye to eye. “She keeps telling me to think before I speak because I never do. I think I have got foot in mouth or something.”
Katie has faced a backlash from the public this week and admitted she was scared to go out alone after she was harassed on a break from rehearsals. “Somebody threw something at me when I was walking around Convent Garden and even though it was only a banana skin it was still horrible,” she said.
“I’m scared when I go out. I don't know what the reaction to me is going to be… I do get worried that people are going to say something. It's scary. I'm really not a bad person. At the end of the day I am a 24-year-old girl and to be booed publicly for, well, I don't know what for, it hurts. It really hurts.”
