X factor contestant Mary Byrne is a huge fan of creative director Brian Friedman

X Factor finalist Mary Byrne has a soft spot for Brian
Friedman
.






The former Tesco worker says she gets starstruck whenever
she’s around the 33-year-old.

‘Any time I’m with Brian I get kind of dumb because he’s so
amazing,’ Mary, 50, tells X Magazine. 




‘He has this presence about him and I get all shaky. I feel
like a little girl.




‘He’s great, a very handsome man.’




Mary, who is mentored by Louis Walsh, 58, has been linked to
fellow finalist Wagner Carrilho, 54.




Brian is openly gay.
