X Factor 2012: Olly Murs hits out at "bitter" rejects Kye Sones, Jade Ellis

Olly Murs

Olly Murs has hit out at "bitter" X Factor rejects who have slagged off the show since being eliminated.

Jade Ellis previously blasted the "karaoke" series after she was booted out of the show last month, while Kye Sones moaned at Tulisa for saving Rylan Clark over him in the sing off.

Olly, who himself never won the show back in 2009, said: "I hate it when people leave the show and slag it off saying 'It was s**t, it was crap, I didn't like him or her'. Stop being bitter!"

He added: "The fundamentals are you didn't get the votes, so go out there and focus on your career.

"You're not their to make friends, you're there to win the competition."

Meanwhile the Xtra Factor host, on course for his fourth number one single this week, also revealed he didn't think Union J's George Shelley and Ella Henderson were together.

Speaking before Sunday's elimination, Olly said of the pair: "I think they're just good friends. He's a nice lad and they're both young and can relate to each other.

"Remember, Ella doesn't have any girlfriends left - she's the last one standing. I'm sure they're just chatting an catching up."


The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday on ITV1 and ITV1HD, with the final five acts sing two tracks each with Abba and Motown themes.

Sunday's results show will see one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna and Bruno Mars.
