Who left The X Factor 2016 last night? The latest elimination results are in but who went home?

It was Halloween week on the show Saturday night as the remaining 9 contestants performed live for the third time this year.

Those left in the contest going into the weekend were Nicole Scherzinger's Boys - Matt Terry and Ryan Lawrie, Simon Cowell's Girls - Emily Middlemas, Samantha Lavery and Gifty Louise, Sharon Osbourne's Overs - Honey G and Saara Aalto, and finally Louis Walsh's Groups - 5 After Midnight and Four of Diamonds.

The judges had plenty to say on each of the spellbinding performances but as always it was viewer votes alone that determined those in danger.

At the end of Sunday night's results show, we ended up saying goodbye to Gifty Louise who left the competition and went home.

Lines to vote for the top nine singers had opened Saturday after the latest performances and closed in last night's results show where the bottom three were revealed.

In yesterday evening's live show on ITV, Dermot O'Leary first announced the trio of acts in the danger zone.

Four Of Diamonds, Ryan Lawrie and Gifty Louise were in the bottom three, the second time in as many weeks for both Four Of Diamonds and Ryan but the first time ever for Gifty.

But Ryan was - for the third time - saved by the lifeline vote, leaving Gifty and Four Of Diamonds to sing off.

First up, Gifty performed A Song For You before Four Of Diamonds belted out The Voice Within.

It was then over to the judges to decide who to keep...
