The X Factor finalist’s abundant curves caught the attention of Simon Cowell on national television as he openly flirted like a good one for the weeks she was in the competition.   Now 26-year-old Ruth Lorenzo looks better than ever after losing a stone on what she calls The X Factor Diet.

She told Closer magazine: ‘I’ve dropped from a size 12/14 to a 10 on top and a size 12 jeans since I was picked as a finalist in September, just by rushing around.   ‘My clothes are looser and I’ve gone from 11.5 to 10.5st.   ‘I didn’t change my eating habits, but running around like a crazy woman means the weight’s just dropped off.’

Ruth has now joined the month-long X Factor Live Tour but she’s determined to stay in shape despite the temptations on the road.   Oh and some gossip to follow – cat fight!!!!!!

X Factor best friends Alexandra Burke and Ruth Lorenzo reportedly had to be pulled apart after an argument turned physical last week.  Cat Fight, Cat Fight….meow……..

The two women met and became best friends while competing on the ITV1 talent show last year. Spanish-born Ruth was voted off in week 8 of the show while Alexandra went on to win, landing her a contract worth a rumoured £1million in the UK and a £3million record deal in the US.   The pair moved into a flat together after the series ended and enjoyed a luxury holiday in Mauritius in January to celebrate Alex’s success – but are now back hard to work, travelling around the UK on the X Factor Live tour.

A source on the tour told the Sun that life on the road has caused tensions in the women’s friendships – which came to a boil in Sheffield last week: “Alex and Ruth are big characters and the fireworks were spectacular when they finally went off.   “Ruth claims they fell out because she pulled a dancer Alex had her eye on. She reckons Alex bullied her but the old green-eyed monster has been creeping in.   “Meanwhile Alex feels she is being singled out by Ruth and the others on tour because of her success. She insists she was never after any dancer – she doesn’t think that would be very cool. She thinks Ruth is just using it as a excuse to pick on her.   “But either way their friendship is well and truly over. They can barely look at each other.  “Both have threatened to leave unless the other is booted off the tour.”

Watch this space….Diva Ruth or Diva Alex….who will win……?

X-Factor Alexandra flashes more than she should!

X Factor winner Alexandra flashes long legs and a butt cheek!

In a week Alexandra is splashed in all the newspapers and she is now an overnight celebrity and wears the X-Factor crown with pride, but it seems Alexandra Burke has yet to learn the ways of the polished pop star.

The 20-year-old’s hair, make-up and nails were perfectly coiffed, but as she posed for photos in the back of her limousine last night her short dress accidentally managed to expose every inch of her long legs and what nice legs they are.

Alexandra was attending the X Factor wrap party at London club Movida with her fellow contestants from the ITV show.

…Then she suffers a wardrobe mishap: The X factor winner exposes her legs

Oh Alexandra! The X factor winner exposes more than she planned as she smiles at photographers as she arrives at the Wrap Party at the MO*VIDA nightclub in London

Not a flattering angle! for even the slimmest of people.

But one who wasn’t there was Diana Vickers – the 17-year-old was turned away for being underage.   She had turned up looking ready to celebrate in a fringed party dress and silver high heels. But Diana was left with nowhere to show off her outfit and instead went for a coffee before heading home.  Her rumoured boyfriend Eoghan Quigg was also elsewhere – perhaps the 16-year-old had heeded advice that he wouldn’t be allowed inside.   Those involved in this year’s show have faced a hectic workload over the last six months – auditioning tens of thousands of applicants, whittling the hopefuls down to the final ten, followed by two months of live shows.

Even Bad Lashes were here – who are they I hear you think! Already faded from memory thank God the band attempted to stay in the limelight by acting up for the cameras, with two members indulging in a show of kissing each other, with outstretched tongues.  Won’t cut it girls!!!!!

They were joined by fellow failures Girlband, who proved more restrained when faced with the paparazzi.

Lapping it up: Lesbian kissing !! Oh girls what will your mum’s say!!!!

Ruth Lorenzo – X Factor

X Factor’s Ruth Lorenzo says : ‘That Simon Cowell made me feel beautiful’ and how much do you think he fancied her?

Sexy slady Ruth Lorenzo, here in a shoot for last week for Closer magazine, she looks hot and very shapely and toned.  She said that Simon Cowell helped her with her low self esteem.  The onscreen flirting was apparent and week after week he said comments about her voluptuous figure very, very positively.

Ruth Lorenzo says her self esteem has grown since appearing on the X Factor… and she puts it all down to Simon Cowell.   The ex-contestant has admitted that her on-screen flirts with the show’s officiando helped her feel good about her looks. She also told Closer magazine: ‘I was so flattered that he thought I was beautiful.  Let’s face it he fancied the very knickers off her!

So what could Ruth wear under such a dress?

‘I’ve always thought I was fat and been very self-conscious about my appearance. I’m from Spain where everyone is beautiful, so I never thought I was attractive.  ‘For Simon to say those things, it’s given me a real boost. I feel a lot better about myself now.’  Ruth, 26, even dropped a dress size during the competition, going from a size 14 to a size 12.  And you can tell.

She laughs: ‘I call it the X Factor diet, all I did was rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. My clothes are baggy on me now, it’s great!’  She says the best thing about the X Factor, other than progressing her singing career, has been meeting fellow contestant Alexandra Burke, 20.   Now Alexandra has won and the show has finished for this year, the girls are planning to move in together and get a dog and a cat – and as asked last night will they call them Holly and Dermot or maybe Cheryl and Simon!

‘She’s like my little sister now, I know that she’s a best friend for life,’ she says.  She said before last night that “I’m rooting for her to win. She has to win. She’s the best singer I’ve ever heard, much better than Mariah Carey.’  And gues what she diod – singing with Beyonce!

She also counts her mentor Dannii Minogue as a firm friend. ‘Dannii was the most amazing mentor. She looked after me so well,’ she says.  Ruth also says that Dannii’s new man Kris Smith, is fantastic. ‘He’s such a wonderful man and they’re so in love – I could just tell by the way they’d look at each other, there was so much love in their eyes,’ she says.   ‘After I voted out we were all in Dannii’s dressing room crying. ‘He’s so gentle.’

Last night, the Spaniard stepped out in a high street copy of the latest fashion must-have – a Herve Leger bandage dress.   She wore a £54 blue one-shouldered dress from Lipsy – much more affordable than the Herve Leger dresses, which range in price from £773 to £2,234.  Cheryl Cole and other top celebrities love them.
