X Factor 2016: Relley C on voice rest ahead of divas week - will she perform?!


X Factor 2016 hopeful Relley C is on voice rest ahead of Saturday night's show.

It's Divas week on Saturday night, a theme perfect for big belter Relley.

However the 26-year-old has been told to rest her vocals ahead of the weekend in a bid to make sure she can sing at the weekend.

Apparently the poorly performer has yet to even rehearse her chosen song.


While our fingers are crossed that Relley will bring it at the weekend, latest eliminee Freddy Parker has piled on the pressure.

He was also on voice rest ahead of last weekend's show and suggested it hurt his chances.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine earlier this week following his exit, Freddy said: “I was on voice rest so much, out of all the contestants I was on voice rest the most.

“I did feel that had a really negative impact on my experience because I couldn’t speak to people and I’m such a talkative person.”

He added: “So having to hold back, I went around with my steamer and honey, lemon and ginger: I must have drunk about 10 gallons!

“On my last day on the show I didn’t speak all day in case I had to do the sing off.”

Meanwhile, Relley isn't the only act who has been ordered to rest this week.

With bookies making Saara Aaalto a favourite AGAIN for the danger zone on Sunday, she really needs to pull something out of the bag.

But she tweeted fans Tuesday evening to tell them she was sick ahead of her latest performance.


Saara said: "I'm resting in bed, have a little cold.. Send me love and healing energy, please. I'll be fine on Sat, promise!"

The X Factor 2016 is back this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.

The theme is divas and there will be guest performances from Shawn Mendes and John Legend.
