X Factor 2016: Gifty Louise 'was TOLD she was going on Saturday night'


Gifty Louise has made a shock revelation about her X Factor exit.

Gifty was given the boot on Sunday night's results show in the sing off against Four Of Diamonds.

Only Gifty's mentor Simon Cowell saved her against the girl group. The two acts were in the bottom three with Ryan Lawrie who was saved by the new lifeline vote twist.

Gifty hasn't hidden her upset at being voted out - which is entirely understandable, quite frankly - and has now dropped a bombshell.

"I knew I was going home. I was told I was going home on the Saturday night," she blabbed to On Demand entertainment.

Gifty didn't expand on what she meant as the interviewer pressed her on 'fix' claims.

She said: "When it comes to the whole fix allegations I can't really say anything about it, I don't know, I'm not the producers. We just perform and we have to be great and hope people vote for us."

Speaking about her time in the show, Gifty went on: "I worked my arse off, I was consistent with every performance I did and topped it off from last week.

"Hopefully people saw my passion and determination and it paid off."

She added: "I worked really hard to get to this point. I worked so hard."

Asked who should have gone before her, Gifty replied: "I don't want to mention any names, I just felt it was a bit unfair. It was my first time in the bottom two...

"Four OF Diamonds was the second time, Ryan Lawrie's been in the bottom three, three times... it is what it is."

Update. A spokesperson for The X Factor has said: “The bottom two contestants who face the sing-off is decided by the public vote and the vote does not close until Sunday night, so the results are not known until then.

"Gifty’s comments were related to what friends and family said to her after her performance on Saturday night, as they felt she was at risk of being in the sing-off”

The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
