My mistake, says Cowell as Gifty is booted off X Factor

"X Factor channels the purest essence of racism, and Gifty getting sent home is absolutely typical of this", Rubes raged on Twitter.

But the publication goes on to claim that X Factor insiders have revealed that Gifty was a "backstage diva" who was so unpopular and demanding, she was nicknamed "Scary Spice". "This is just the beginning, I'm just going to keep doing, keep singing and just. milk it!"

A flustered Simon went on: "Ok, rewind".

After Gifty was voted off, a number of X Factor viewers noted on Twitter that her "lack of grace" in accepting the decision of the judges - and the public who evidently failed to vote for her - was uncomfortable to watch.

On the ball: He quickly retracted his statement saying: "No!" The girl group was, fortunately, saved by Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger, and Louis Walsh.

'I don't really blame him I honestly feel like he thought that was the right song for me and I could do it justice, ' she said. I should never have given you that song.

The trio voted to save them over Gifty Louise after Four Of Diamonds found themselves in the sing-off for a second time in as many weeks.

She said: "I had a chat with him (Simon) after my performance on the Saturday and I told him "I'm going home and I know it".

Now, Gifty has had her say, and it seems she's not happy about the result either.

Simon has been accused of using Gifty to promote USA girl group Fifth Harmony, who are signed to his Syco record label, as Gifty also sang another of their little known tracks earlier in the series.

Before the devastating departure of Gifty, the first acts to hear they were safe were Louis' boys, Five After Midnight followed closely by Simon's delighted acts Emily Middlemas and Sam Lavery. I'm sure for the past three weeks he has been in the bottom two from the main vote at least once.

This left Gifty Louse and Four of Diamonds in the bottom two.

The hair's come off and now one time Great British Bake Off victor Ruby Tandoh has launched a vicious attack on the X Factor.

"The X Factor" continues on Saturday (5 November), when the acts will each be performing songs with a "Girlband vs. Boyband" theme. Bruno Mars was the guest performer tonight.
