Former X Factor contestant Lucy Spraggan has revealed she was attacked after a recent gig.

Lucy was at a bar with her wife Georgina Gordon and her guitarist following a gig in Brighton when she was attacked by two women in the early hours of Friday morning (March 17).

Taking to Instagram after the incident, Lucy revealed her injuries. In one photo, she is seen holding a clump of her own hair and displaying scratches on her face.

"That's my own hair," Lucy wrote. "Was attacked tonight after the show in Brighton, along with my guitarist and wife. Sussex Police have been amazing and are pursuing a charge."

Lucy, who shot to fame on The X Factor in 2012 and is currently touring her new album, also posted another photo showing multiple abrasions to her face.

"In the early hours of Friday morning Lucy was attacked outside a bar on Middle Street, Brighton," Lucy's tour manager Ben Price told Newsbeat in a statement.

"She suffered cuts and bruises to the face and other injuries including bite lacerations.

"Lucy is recovering well and as planned will be fulfilling her European tour which starts in Amsterdam on Tuesday.

"Lucy has thanked Sussex Police for their help in the matter and their quick work in bringing two women into custody," Price added.

Sussex Police have also confirmed a 26-year-old woman and 27-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of assault and have since been bailed.

Last year, Lucy revealed that online bullying made her consider suicide before she met her wife Georgina.

"It just got to a point where I thought, 'I can't do this anymore. This is it'. But then I met [Georgina] and I was so, so happy," she admitted.
