Lucy Spraggan was absent from this weekend's 'X Factor' after coming down with the flu, and now reports are claiming she "might quit" the show.
The singer/songwriter is allegedly furious with show bosses for trying to get her to sing cover versions, The Daily Mirror reports.
A source told the paper the singer also wants to “be paid for the songs which she wrote that are selling on iTunes”.
However, a show spokeswoman insisted Lucy would be back: “She is very happy show-wise.”
Last week axed 'X Factor' duo MK1 branded the guitar-strumming favourite a grump.
In an interview with Radio 1Xtra, rapper Simeon said: "Lucy Spraggan had so many bad days and it was hard to try to connect and talk to her."
Charlie added: "She sounded a bit grumpy. Don't get me wrong, she's talented. But a smile wouldn't go amiss, if you know what I'm saying."
