X FACTOR reject Lucie Jones attracted a huge crowd when she appeared to switch on Christmas lights. But unfortunately that is all she will do for the foresee- able future after being banned from accepting other offers of work as she is still under contract with the show. The Welsh singer, 20, was con- troversially voted off the ITV hit series on Sunday after a sing-off with twins John and Edward Grimes. Simon Cowell had the casting vote which many felt sealed her fate, so he may have winced when he saw the hundreds of fans support- ing her in Stockport last night. Since her exit on Sunday she has been inundated with offers, including record contracts, a lead role in a BBC drama, a spot in a West End musical and a Hollywood movie audition. But she has had to turn down every job because she is still tied to the X Factor under her exclusive contract conditions. The former barmaids agent Leigh-Ann Regan said she was trying to change the terms of the contract. But while she was flicking on the illuminations last night, the Jedward twins who sealed her X Factor fate were jeered as they arrived at The O2. The 18-year-olds went to watch US boyband Backstreet Boys perform at the Docklands venue, but a loud boo went up as they walked in. An onlooker said: The poor lads looked really miffed.
