Gifty Louise has laughed off dropping the F-bomb in last night's live X Factor 2016 results.
She shouted the expletive live on the episode as the elimination results were announced.
She was eliminated in the sing off against Four Of Diamonds, while Ryan Lawrie was saved from the bottom three (again) thanks to the new 'life line' vote twist.
In Sunday evening's live show on ITV, Dermot O'Leary began as usual by announcing the trio of acts in the danger zone.
First to be called safe was Sam, prompting Gifty to shout "F**king told you!", which was caught on one of the many microphones in the studio.
Host Dermot O'Leary was quick to issue an apology over the language, which aired before the 9PM watershed.
"You may have just heard some inappropriate language, we deeply apologise," Dermot said to cameras. “As you can imagine tensions are high.”
After the results show, Gifty laughed off the incident and tweeted: "I didn't even notice I did it 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂"
She also added to fans after surviving the third elimination of the series: "Thank you guys so much for your support, couldn't have done it with you ❤️❤️ #TeamGifty"
While such language can get the show in trouble with TV Watchdog Ofcom, the regulator often clears such unexpected outbursts on live telly when an apology is issued.
The X Factor is back next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.
It's Halloween weekend and there will be a guest performance from reigning winner Louisa Johnson.
