X Factor 2016 results! 'Fuming' Gifty Louise speaks out after exit


Gifty Louise has spoken out after her exit from The X Factor 2016 in last night's results.

It was Gifty who left in last night's X Factor 2016 results after the sing-off against Four of Diamonds.

Four of Diamonds were in the sing-off for the second time in as many weeks while elsewhere in the live results, Ryan Lawrie was saved by the life line vote for a third time.

When the result came in there was anger in the studio with the judges booed by the audience and Gifty herself looked FUMING.


Many took to Twitter to comment on how upset Gifty looked - and understandably so - but on Xtra Factor she insisted she was "so happy".

"I'm grateful for the experience, I made it this far. Thousands of people auditioned for this show and I made it to the final nine, so I'm happy, honestly. I have no regrets," Gifty said.

Following her elimination in the latest XFactor results show, Gifty continued: "I've made a lot of friends, I'm going to miss hanging out with Jordan [from 5 After Midnight].

"I knew I was going home, the girls [Four Of Diamonds] are amazing."

Gifty went on to thank mentor Simon Cowell, saying: "Simon thank you so much, thank you for taking a gamble on me, thank you for taking me through, thank you for everything, honestly.

"Simon has been absolutely fantastic. He's already had my best interest at heart. He's always done what made me feel comfortable. I don't blame him. I tried my absolute best. I knew [my song] was a risk but I had complete faith in Simon."


And Gifty vowed to "keep singing": "I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing. I'm going to keep singing... I might become the next Rylan, you never know!"

The X Factor 2016 is back next Saturday and Sunday on ITV from 8PM.

It's a Girl band v Boy Band theme and there will be a guest performance from Robbie Williams.
