Gay X Factor contestant and boyfriend attacked with knife


A former X Factor contestant and his boyfriend have said they were the target of a homophobic hate crime knife attack at their own home. Craig Colton, a finalist on the show in 2011, told his more than 200,000 Twitter followers about facing a homophobic attack last week. “After a horrible night of being attacked with a knife and homophobic rants at our own home, we find out the police can’t do anything 💔”, Craig complains. “Completely traumatised about this scary and horrific incident that took place in our home at 3am!”, his partner Shane Cooper added, “We have never felt so in danger 😭” Cooper, who has performed non-surgical procedures on models Katie Price and Bianca Gascoigne, as well as Towie star Ferne McCann, said the incident was terrifying enough to make the couple leave their house for the night. To a fan who expressed their concern, he said: “We are not at our home as feel in danger, both very sad and unsettled. “Worse experience of our lives!”
