After the flash vote boyband Kingsland Road were revealed to be facing the Sunday night sing-off but were saved by the judges.

Shelley's Smith performance of Sam Brown's Stop was praised but only her mentor, Sharon Osborne, voted for her to stay, making her the second "over 25" to leave The X Factor finals.

Miss Dynamix singer SeSe Foster, who is pregnant, was taken to hospital on Saturday night.

The group were given a free pass into the next week of the competition after deciding they would be unable to learn her part in time to perform.

"She [SeSe] has to be very careful. They couldn't perform. At the end of the day that's their decision," said Shelley earlier today.

"I'm not bitter about it at all. They're going to go out this week and hopefully put on a brilliant performance."
