X Factor UK: Louisa Johnson Bullied By Lauren Murray? Reveals Reason Why She Cries

Despite being one of this year’s biggest X Factor UK success stories, all while nabbing a spot in the semi-finals, 17-year-old Louisa Johnson reveals it wasn’t all roses and sunshine. There have been a lot of tears involved  — over family and self-image.

Having come this far in the competition meant having to overcome her fears and self-doubts, particularly about her body image. Johnson, speaking to OK! Magazine, opened up about her weight struggles, revealing her drop in weight to 98 pounds last year as a product of her negative feelings.

“I wanted to change everything about the way I looked last year,” she said, referring to her body struggles. “I’ve gotten to the stage where I’m happier with them, I look in the mirror and I don’t care. Now I’m happy being me.”

While she seems to be a favorite to taking home the X Factor UK crown, Johnson remains humble and admits she doesn’t like to think about being the potential winner, no matter how the odds may appear to be in her favor.

“It’s amazing, but I just don’t think about it. Thinking I’m the favorite isn’t going to get me anywhere,” she revealed.

Despite her overall success on the show so far, Johnson confesses she still feels low from time to time, opting to speak to her mother for support as much as she can whilst away from home.

“I do cry about missing my mum,” she said. “I still speak to my mum every day. If I get a bit down, then we chat and it really helps.”

Though Johnson’s chances at winning seem high, new reports suggest those chances may falter as she has been hit by a ‘nasty virus.’ Johnson has been kept in isolation as a result of the bug — which also affected the show’s co-host, Olly Murs, in the process — and is now struggling to speak, let alone sing.

“Louisa is putting on a brave face but she can hardly speak,” said a source. “We’re worried she could be too ill to continue next week. We couldn’t give her a free pass to the final, there would be an uproar.”
