X Factor 2012 star Carolynne Poole has insisted that she still loves Louis Walsh, despite him once again sending her home.
Last night saw the first X Factor results, after all the finalists had performed for the first time on Saturday night.
Rylan Clark and Carolynne were in the bottom two, with the judges deciding to send the result to a deadlock, which saw Carolynne leave.
It followed Louis sending home Carolynne last year at judges' houses, just before the live shows.
But despite the double rejection from Louis, Carolynne said: "I’m still gutted. I’ve had about two hours sleep and I woke up this morning thinking ‘did that just happen?’”
She added: "It’s really weird because I like Louis, I do, I have a soft spot for him. You know what he’s like, he’s been like that forever.”
Speaking on This Morning, Carolynne also defended Rylan.
She said: "I know the public haven’t been receptive to him but Rylan is my friend, he has been one of my friends since bootcamp and I don’t like that this has created an opportunity for people to be really nasty to him because he is nice.”
The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night on ITV1, with the results show following on Sunday night with performances from Taylor Swift and Rebecca Ferguson.
