R-Patz's sister enters X Factor

Robert Pattinson's sister has auditioned for The X Factor - and made it through the first round.
Lizzy Pattinson, 31, is the older sister of the Twilight heartthrob and previously sang on the soundtrack for the vampire love stories which made his name.
According to the Daily Mirror, R-Patz's sis auditioned for X Factor judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Louis Walsh and Mel B and impressed them enough to make it through to the next stage.
Lizzy is now set to perform in front of the judges again - and a live audience at Wembley arena.
An insider told the newspaper: "She blew them (the judges) away with her husky, soulful vocals. She's different to usual X Factor contestants - she really stands out. She could go all the way."
But the blonde didn't tell the judges about her famous brother, as she wants to make it on her own.
The source said: "She didn't mention she was related to him to any judges or producers. It's important to her she does not fall into the trap of just becoming 'Rob's sister'."
R-Patz, 28, is in the UK next week to promote his new film The Rover and so could turn up at the Wembley arena auditions to support his sibling.
The actor is a budding musician himself. He can play the guitar and the piano and used to perform in a band called Bad Girls. He also recorded some songs on the Twilight soundtrack.
