Cowell Sacks BINTM’s Grace Woodward From X Factor Style Team

Do you remember Katie Waissel’s helmet, Wagner’s tight pants and Matt Cardle’s garish yellow trousers? Well the woman behind all those fashion faux-pas – Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model‘s very own Grace Woodward – has been sacked by Simon Cowell.

Woodward was in charge of dressing and styling the outfits of contestants on last year’s X Factor, but after a string of odd choices , Cowell has decided to replace the stylist according to The Mirror.

“Simon wasn’t always a fan of Grace’s styling and they’ve decided to look for someone else,” a source told the tabloid. “The feeling was they wanted more of a household name.â€?

Woodward had earlier confessed that she didn’t know if she’d be asked back by ITV, after explaining that she was only given two weeks notice about her inclusion in the live shows last year..

“X Factor was a nightmare,” she said recently. “But an amazing nightmare. You are working with normal people, yet I’ve never heard so many people say to me, “Erm, this dress isn’t me.â€? I just say: “You want to look like a pop star? Listen to me.â€?‘
