Pop wannabe Katie Waissel passes out as fans mob finalists

X Factor hopeful Katie Waissel fainted on Wednesday night at Topshop’s London flagship store at Oxford Circus.

Crowds of fans mobbed her and the other talent show contestants and the blonde 24-year-old was treated by first-aiders after slumping to the floor.

‘She can’t remember what happened at all. It was all a bit of a drama,’ a source tells the Daily Mail.

‘She didn’t see a doctor, but thinks that her blood sugar may have been on the low side.’

Katie and her fellow finalists had been invited by Sir Philip Green to treat themselves to new outfits at Topshop and Topman.

They all had to battle their way out of the stores after shoppers became over excited but it was only Katie who collapsed.

‘Her schedule is hectic and she’s exhausted,’ we were very worried,’ says her brother-in-law Glenn.

Katie – who’s feared to be ready to quit the show – was soon back on her feet but mentor Cheryl Cole reckons she needs to ‘loosen up’.
