Amelia Lily says being diabetic made her 'stronger'

Singer Amelia Lily has said being diabetic has made her "stronger as a person".

The 22-year-old, who was a finalist on The X Factor in 2011, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was three years old.

Now performing in musicals, the Middlesbrough star told Inside Out that being on stage and burning a lot of energy makes her "keep on top of her bloods".
