X Factor's Katie Waissel contracts infection following 'worst injury' ever

Katie Waissel revealed she contracted an infection after she was rushed to the hospital following a horror accident in the kitchen. The X Factor star previously cut her finger with a mandoline slicer and had to be taken to the hospital.

Following the incident, she took to her Instagram Stories to share an update about her injury and explained she ended up getting an infection on her finger. The 37-year-old said it left her 'feeling sick' while removing her bandages during a video call with a nurse and said the pain was like a 'thousand stabbings'.

"I had to - whilst FaceTiming a nurse - cut off a bandage. I feel so sick! Because it turns out there is an infection," she said to her 27,000 followers. The whole thing is so gross. So - trigger warning - it's not fresh blood it's dry but I had to take half of it off and look at that."

She went on to show fans her injured finger, which was heavily bandaged, to the camera. "It's the worst pain ever, it's like a thousand needles stabbing and my God if I lose my finger I will take one off the middle position and put it on the middle position again to give a royal F** you to the situation. This? Terrible I have got no words no."

The singer told fans about her injury earlier this week and said it was the "worse ever" as she posted a picture taken in the emergency department of her local hospital. Her entire hand was wrapped in layers and layers of white bandage while her middle finger had extra padding.

She penned: "Mandoline 1 - 0 Katie."

Mum-of-one Katie continued: "I swear mandolines, or me using one, should now officially be banned! Worst injury ever sustained," before adding a vomiting emoji. A mandoline is a tool which is used to slice vegetables at a fast pace with a singular blade often working in the same way as a grater.

In recent months, the songstress has been updating her social media about her activism work as she fights to change the reality television industry and ensure that more aftercare is put in place. During her stint on the former ITV talent programme, Katie was subjected to horrific abuse and even received death threats from members of the public.

Sharing a glimpse of several newspaper clippings from her time on the show with headlines about the death threats and abuse she was facing, Katie told her Twitter followers: "It is absolutely inhumane, I will be damn sure to work relentlessly to uncover the person. and/or persons behind this. And when I do, make sure that they are absolutely held to account and to never, ever do this again, to anybody."
