X Factor singer Lucy Spraggan has admitted she's disappointed after her music was pulled from Amazon yesterday.
The singer had reached number two in the official charts based on online sales since her audition on Saturday night, but bosses decided to remove the tracks.
Lucy had performed a self-penned track Last Night for the judges, which she had released independently for download last year.
But a spokesperson confirmed that from now on, all contestants must remove any such recordings.
They commented: "All contestants have been asked to remove their recordings as it is essential that all the contestants are treated fairly during the competition and, where possible, receive the same exposure."
Lucy's songs had been removed from iTunes on Monday, but were still available from Amazon until last night.
Lucy told the Metro about having to remove the songs: "Obviously I was asked and I've obliged because you've got to do what you've got to do, to get somewhere in life.
"If that means you've got to remove your album from iTunes and everywhere then you're going to do it"
She added: "There's always going to be a part of me that's disappointed about it but if you think about it in the long run, with things which could be happening in the future, they're going to be substantially better. It doesn't matter."
