Eliminated X Factor singer Lorna Simpson has branded the show a fix.

The Over 25s performer became the first to leave this year's competition in Sunday night's results, and has hit out at the way she was treated on the show.

And in a series of interviews after her exit, Lorna claimed: "They know the outcome of the whole competition. It’s prepared.

“It’s TV and they have to be ahead.”

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Lorna branded her portrayal and lack of air time on the show as "unfair".

“X Factor set me up to go out in the first week. They underplayed me… it was set up," she accused bosses.
“It was like I jumped from the audition room to Boot Camp. Of course I sat there with my family ready to watch episodes but my arena audition wasn’t ever shown.

“I had backstage talks and loads of fun stuff, even filming at the house — but none of it was shown."

Lorna added: “In all my auditions, I nailed everything and had perfect comments. I could have been given a lot more air time.”

The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
