'My life as an X Factor contestant'

On Sunday night, ITV talent show The X Factor saw the return of the 'six chair challenge' - the episode that decides who has a real shot at stardom.
But what is it like for those who make it through but are then rejected?
Three former contestants, Jade Richards, Ryan-Lee Seager and Shereece Foster, told reporter Catrin Nye about the pressures of returning to normal life. X Factor responded, saying a psychologist was available for contestants during and after leaving the competition.
The programme also denied Jade's claim that the judges' comments about her performance had been edited.
