X Factor 2014 ratings rise for final bootcamp episode

x factor 2014 spoilers 3

Last night's dramatic X Factor 2014 bootcamp conclusion was one of this year's most watched episodes.

Yesterday evening we saw Louis Walsh pick his final six contestants in the last Six Chair Challenge of the weekend's triple bootcamp bill.

The messy show was branded the X Factor's worst ever by some, with claims of a fix after Louis repeatedly changed his mind over who to take through.

But despite the complaints, almost 9 million viewers watched to make the episode one of this year's most watched, up 300,000 viewers on last Sunday.

And it was up almost 4 million viewers on Friday night's episode, which saw Cheryl pick her final four girls.

However the show - which was easily the most watched programme of the day - was still 500,000 viewers down on last year.

The X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing both continue next weekend on ITV and BBC One respectively.
