X Factor's Sam Bailey has hit out at Beyonce, revealing that the star didn't have the "decency" to meet her when they performed together at a live show.

When Sam won the tenth series of the X Factor back in 2013, she got a once-in-a-lifetime prize included in her winners goody bag, a support slot on Beyonce's tour.

Sam got to live the actual dream when Beyonce performed in Birmingham, warming up the huge crowd in a massive arena, but it turns out she didn't actually meet Queen B at all...

Speaking to The Sunday Times magazine, Sam said: "I supported Beyoncé as part of my X Factor prize, but she didn't even bother to meet me. I'd never do that. I'd have the decency to say hello," she said, adding: "Who does she think she is?"

However Sam revealed she's had the last laugh, sharing this gem: "When she was on stage, I was at the front, and while she was proper going for it my son spent the whole time playing Minecraft on his iPad."

Not holding back, Sam then had her say on the revamped X Factor panel, and she's not the biggest fan: "I still tune into it," she said, "but I'm not majorly keen on the judges. Nick Grimshaw doesn't look comfortable, and while Rita Ora's a great singer, I'd find it hard being told what to do by someone just out of drama school." Ouch!

Ah well, having won the entire show already Sam no longer has to worry about facing the judges, she's got more important things to prepare for, like her upcoming show...
