X Factor's Gifty Louise hits out at 'two faced' Nicole Scherzinger


Gifty Louise has slammed Nicole Scherzinger after Sunday night's X Factor results.

Gifty made a shock departure from the show at the weekend, leaving in the sing-off against Four Of Diamonds.

Only mentor Simon Cowell saved her with Nicole, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourn opting to send Gifty home.

"I was a little bit surprised," Gifty said of Nicole's vote in particular. "On Xtra Factor Nicole kind of turned around and said Gifty shouldn’t have gone home, but you voted for me to go out..?”


Before the sing off in the results, Ryan Lawrie was saved from the bottom three in the life line vote for a third week.

Gifty told The Sun newspaper: "I was a bit confused by that. Ryan Lawrie’s been in the bottom three three times, Four of Diamonds have been in it twice — I’ve been in it once and they all vote for me to go."

In another interview, Gifty hit out at The X Factor judges for allegedly conspiring to get her off the show.

She told DigitalSpy: "I personally think they planned to vote me out – so you know, it is weird really. I did hear Louis say to Sharon, 'vote Gifty out'. And everyone heard it."

And Gifty accused: "I personally feel like they voted me out to get rid of the competition. They all voted me out – it's fine, I take it as a compliment.


"They want me out because they think I can beat their other artists. That's fine."

A spokesperson for The X Factor told the website: "The judges make their decisions about who to send home in the sing-off purely based on the contestants' singing and their performance."

The X Factor is back next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
