X Factor 2016: Alesha Dixon "gutted" about Louis Walsh's judges' houses choices


Alesha Dixon has admitted she's "gutted" over X Factor's judges' houses results.

This weekend saw the finalists revealed as Louis picked his top three for the live shows in the Groups category.

A total of seven acts performed for Louis and his guest judges Alesha and Fleur East in Ibiza.

But for four it was bad news as Skarl3t, Four of Diamonds, Yes Lad, and Tom and Laura were all sent home by the Irish judge.

On the other hand, Louis said yes to Bradley and Ottavio, The Brooks and 5AM who are now all in the live shows of The X Factor 2016.

Over on Twitter as the show aired on Saturday night, viewers made their opinions felt especially over Louis' female-free line up.

And Alesha has also admitted she was disappointed with the choices Louis ended up making.

She wrote on a post on Instagram alongside a picture of herself and Louis in Ibiza: "Well that was fun. But I am gutted, I was really rooting for the 2 girl groups!"

Defending his choices on the Xtra Factor, Louis said: "You have no idea how though it was. It was really, really hard."

Speaking about 4 Of Diamonds in particular, Louis said: "I know I'm going to get a lot of slack for the girls. I think if they come back next year they're going to be even better.

"I liked them but I thought they'd have gone week one or two.

"I really liked them, but I think they could be even more amazing next year."

Discussing Bratavio's appearance in his top three, Louis said: "I know everyone's not going to love Bradley and Ottavio. I know it's risky... but people are talking about then, you'll remember them. They're different. There is an audience for them."

The X Factor 2016 returns Sunday night with the Boys and Overs judges' houses.
