X Factor 2012 news: Jade Ellis to 'snub' final

Jade Ellis (X Factor 2012)

Jade Ellis has revealed she plans to snub The X Factor 2012 final because bosses won't be allowing her to take her daughter.

The current series of the show concludes this weekend in Manchester, but despite over 10,000 seats in the arena, Jade isn't allowed to take anyone to look after her daughter.

All of this year's finalists, including Lucy Spraggan, are expected to be back on the show at the weekend.

"Looks like I won't be at the final either now... #itsajoke," she tweeted. "Over it... I would have love to go but I have no intention on leaving Caiden for three days!!! No tickets for family!! #terrible."

She added: "In utter disbelief tbh... #shocked #disappointed."

We're pretty shocked Jade even wanted to return to the show having slated it previously after being voted out.

Gary said he was worried he wanted this opportunity for me more than I did, but why would I give up time with my six year old child if I didn’t truly want the opportunity? I sacrificed a lot for it.”

The mum of one claimed that she was ultimately forced to sing songs she didn’t want to, and suggested that the series still needed to “evolve”.

Despite Lucy Spraggan being allowed to sing her own tracks on the live shows, Jade said she wasn’t allowed.

“The songs I sang aren’t the songs I want to produce as an artist. X Factor needs to continue evolving and letting contestants sing their own songs,” Jade complained. “People don’t want to watch us dong karaoke every week.”

The X Factor 2012 continues next weekend with the live final in Manchester.

Chris Maloney, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur will be battling it out to be crowned winner, while there will be performances from One Direction, Kylie Minogue, Rhianna and Emeli Sande.
