Axed XFactor finalist Shelley Smith has insisted she expected to leave in yesterday's results.

Shelley was eliminated in last night's X Factor 2013 results after Saturday's Love and Heartbreak themed performances.

Shelley was in the bottom two with Kingsland Road, with the judges sending her home over the boyband by three votes to one.

Speaking on the Xtra Factor, Shelley said she had "100%" prepared herself to be eliminated after being in the bottom two for a second week running.

“Totally 100% [I expected it] but it’s cool," Shelley explained. "I love Kingsland Road, Thompson especially, he is my baby.

"He is going to be my friend for life, I am really proud of him.”

On her final sing-off performance, a cover of Stop by Sam Brown, Shelley added: “I gave it everything I had, what’s left of my voice, so I hope everybody enjoyed it.”

Meanwhile, Shelley backed Hannah Barrett to win the competition.

She told the ITV2 spin-off: “I love them all, I know whose voice I love the most.

"Hannah, I love Hannah. Hannah’s voice gets me and I’d love her to win because I think she is really special.”

The X Factor 2013 continues next Saturday night at 8PM on ITV.
