The X Factor winner has prior commitment


Leona Lewis will not be appearing at the Brit Awards tomorrow night.

The X Factor 2006 winner is nominated for Best British Single for Better In Time at the annual music bash but just can’t fit it into her schedule.

Leona, who flew back to the UK at the weekend with boyfriend Lou Al-Charma, went home empty-handed last year, despite being up for 4 gongs.

But her rep insists the 23-year-old is not snubbing the ceremony.

She is not attending due to a prior family commitment but she is delighted to have been nominated, Stuart Bell tells Now Online.

The Brit Awards take place at London’s Earls Court tomorrow night.
