Sheffield's X Factor star Lucy Spraggan has confirmed that she is not taking part in this year's X Factor tour.

The singer-songwriter pulled out of the show four weeks into the live episodes after being ill for two weeks.

Answering a fan's question via her official twitter page Lucy told the follower that instead she will be taking part in her own solo tour:

"Unfortunately, I won't be on TXF tour as I'll be doing my tour :)"

Lucy's solo tour dates are being announced via her official web site. They include a gig at the Vipper Rooms in Harrogate on November 30.

However, despite the news Lucy won't be part of the nationwide tour, there is still hope for her fans that she may perform on the X Factor final in three weeks time.
