Lucy Spraggan thinks 'The X Factor' needs reality TV stars to educate the contestants.

The 29-year-old star - who rose to fame on the ITV talent show in 2012 - has responded to rumours the programme could be making a comeback three years after it ended its run following 15 years on the air.

She told Metro newspaper's Guilty Pleasures column: "I have a book coming out next year that goes into my experiences.

"In a very 'Hunger Games'-esque way, they need old battlefield people to come in and say, 'This door that you're about to open will change your life as you know it, you will never be able to walk back through the door'.

"They need reality TV stars to come in and give them reality!"

The 'Everything Changes' singer recently noted that if 'The X Factor' does make a comeback, she will be campaigning to ensure contestants are provided with "the correct welfare" and support.

She said: "If that show comes back, I can guarantee that it won't come back without the correct welfare and I'll make sure of that.

"My book comes out next year which is why I know I'm going to have the power to make sure people get properly looked after."

Last month, there were reports the show will be revived by Channel 5 after boss Simon Cowell had "lots of meetings" with a number of different TV channels.

A source previously said: "As soon as 'X Factor' was up for grabs, there was interest from a number of the networks.

“'X Factor' is one of the most iconic shows in TV history, so it’s no surprise lots of channels were keen. The production company had their pick.

“After a lot of meetings, execs decided to go with Channel 5.”
