GONE! Under pressure X Factor star opts to pack up her bags and… leave

OK, so the ratings haven't been as impressive for Cowell & Co recently. AND sure we know it's probably all fixed from the outset, but we still love the X Factor.

Apart from having an excuse to stuff our faces and sit on the couch every Saturday night, we also love all the behind the scenes gossip (in fact, that's arguably a lot more entertaining than what's going on on stage). 

And following the swift exit of Kiera Weathers and Seann Miley Moore over recent weekends, it has now been reported that Lauren Murray had also left the contestants' house. 

Though she is still a part of the competition itself, Lauren has packed her bags and departed from the swanky pad. 

The 26 year old told The Mirror that she found living in the house too "intense" (although we're wondering how living in a luxury London mansion can be too intense). 

"I found the filming the hardest to deal with," said Rita Ora's girl. "The camera is there when you wake up, it's there when you go to sleep. I felt like I could never relax. It's intense."

Lauren went on to describe living in the house as "Big Brother meets Glee meets prison". Well, nope, that does not sound fun. 

The singer went on to discuss how she found the six-chair challenge particularly demanding. 

"I was drained. I definitely think they should get rid of six-chair challenge. I found it horrific. But they won't – it's too good TV. Imagine if I had fainted. Someone would have got a bonus!"


We applaud Lauren for her candid honesty but we're not sure how much longer she will last if she keeps criticising the nature of the show? Watch out girl!
