Shelley Smith has admitted she's overwhelmed to still be in The X Factor 2013.

Shelley was voted into the bottom two on Saturday's show in the new flash vote, and was joined by Lorna Simpson in last night's latest live show.

The pair sung off, and Lorna became the first to leave in last night's X Factor 2013 results.

Speaking after the sing off, Shelley said: “It means everything to still be in this competition.

"But I’m really close to Lorna – we got to know each other at Bootcamp and we’ve been on a journey together. I’m so sorry to have been up against her."

She told the official ITV website: “Today was crazy. It’s been very up and down for me, one minute I was feeling upbeat and the next I was so emotional. But I went out there fighting and I had a cracking song. All I could do was hope and pray the Judges would save me.”

And Shelley confessed: “I haven’t been in the swimming pool – and I’ve been regretting that today. What if I didn’t go back? I’m going to enjoy things even more now and next Saturday, it’s my birthday - so it’ll be a double whammy for me. My sassy side will be coming out.”

The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
