A woman sent a wave of panic among judges and producers of the talent contest show The X Factor, when she threatened to commit suicide after being given the boot.

During the second day of auditions, the all the four judges - Louise Walsh, Dannii Minogue, Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell - gave her a 'no', meaning that that was the end of her journey in the contest.

To add to the pressure, the woman was rejected in front of an audience of 2,000.

Producers summoned an emergency doctor they have on standby, as the woman began sobbing and screaming.

A witness, Tracy Ward said the 50-something-year-old woman "ran off, shouting that she was going to commit suicide. The producers ran after her. An hour and a half later they were still making sure she was OK."

After the woman returned to see the doctor the next day following the incident, a source says "The doctor was satisfied she was feeling better about the situation."
