X Factor judge Tulisa is gutted that MK1 were given the boot at the weekend, the duo have claimed.
The pair were eliminated on Saturday night in the latest X Factor 2012 results show on Sunday night, after being in the bottom two with Kye Sones.
The judges once again failed to decide who to to send home in the sing off and opted to send the vote to deadlock, where it was revealed that MK1 had received the fewest votes.
Speaking to MTV, MK1 said: "Tulisa was honestly gutted backstage.
"We used to spend before and after the show in her dressing room with Louis and Jade Ellis – we are quite a close little unit."
They continued: "She was literally gutted when we saw her afterwards to the point of holding onto us for a very long minute."
The duo - made up of Charlie and Sim - told the website that they'd be making sure to stay in touch with both Louis and Tulisa now the show had finished.
Charlie said: "We’ve spoken to Tulisa since and we are going to stay in touch with her and Louis.
"He has already invited us to Dublin so we are going to go there. We are going to stay tight with both of them."
We suspect they won't be talking to Nicole or Gary however, after branding them rude and unfair after the weekend's sing off.
