X Factor favourite Lucy Spraggan has proven to be popular in more ways than one. Having impressed the judges and the audience with her audition song, 'Beer Fear' and then her song 'Tea And Toast' at the Bootcamp stage, the hopeful has alo revealed that she has indirectly helped fans come out and reveal their sexuality.
Revealing that she has had people coming up to her thanking her for giving them the confidence to tell their families and friends the truth about their sexuality, Lucy told The Sun:
"It’s been amazing. I’ve done gigs and some young girls there said they were watching TV with their parents... they heard my music, their parents loved it, found out I was gay, still loved it and they’ve said, ‘Oh, I’m gay as well,’ and their parents have been fine.
“For me, to have helped someone come out is the biggest compliment ever.”

Revealing that she's happy and confident with who she is, Lucy added: "It’s the 21st century, and if someone doesn’t like the fact that I’m gay then I don’t want them to listen to my music. Anyone who is prejudice or homophobic or racist has got something not right in their brain.
“You can’t just not like someone because of something like that.”
Having impressed the judges with her performance over the weekend, Lucy, along with Ella Henderson, Amy Mottram, Jade Collins, Leanne Robinson and Jade Ellis, will all sing in front of their mentor Tulisa in the hope that they make it through to the live stages.
