Protests at X Factor's Gamu deportation threat

Protesters have gathered at the home of X Factor contestant Gamu Nhengu, who is facing removal from the UK, to show support for her.

Immigration officials have confirmed that her mother, Nokuthula Ngazana, had been refused permission to stay in the UK after her visa expired in August.

The teenager, who is originally from Zimbabwe, was controversially eliminated from the ITV show on Sunday.
