Gutted X Factor star Tamera Foster was in tears on the show at the weekend after narrowly avoiding the axe.

Over the weekend we saw the live show finalists sing for the fourth time, as another act was sent home.

Kingsland Road were eliminated in Sunday night's X Factor 2013 results after Saturday's Disco themed performances.

The boys were in the sing-off with Tamera, a shock result for the teenager who was favourite to win.

According to The Sun, Tamera was comforted by her mum and mentor Nicole Scherzinger before saying farewell to the boys at the X Factor house.

"Tamera was absolutely gutted. She doesn’t pay attention to the hype that she’s the favourite to win but it was a bit of a shock," an insider told the newspaper today. “She’s really close to the Kingsland boys and her mum wanted her to come home for the evening. But Tamera wanted to stay in the house for the boys’ last night.

“Nicole’s had acts in the bottom two for two weeks running and she gave Tamera loads of advice about how to move forward."

Tamera's sing off shock has seen the bookies alter their odds significantly, with Sam Bailey now the favourite to win the series.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "It was a huge upset to see Tamera in the bottom two, but it speaks volumes about her popularity with punters and that's why Sam Bailey's our new favourite."

The X Factor 2013 continues on ITV this Saturday and Sunday night with Big Band week, featuring performances from Robbie Williams and Celine Dion.
