X Factor 2016: Simon Cowell has 'banned' Emily Middlemas from dancing


Emily Middlemas has revealed she's not being allowed to dance on The X Factor 2016.

The singer has repeatedly complained about being 'stuck' in her performances week in week out.

And while we did get something slightly more interesting last weekend, it wasn't enough to impress Louis Walsh.

He was in charge of the songs as part of Louis Loves week but his choice of Toxic by Britney Spears for Emily still saw her again stationary.

Speaking on the Xtra Factor on Sunday, Emily admitted she still did want to dance... but Simon "doesn't like it".

"I will try to make Simon let me dance but he doesn't like it," she told hosts Matt Edmondson and Rylan Clark-Neal.

Emily joked: "You have to sign a contract with him, you have go through his lawyers!"

Sunday night saw the Quarter Final X Factor 2016 results as Honey G bowed out of the competition.

She was eliminated in the sing off against 5 After Midnight to leave just four acts for the semi-finals next week.

Joining 5 After Midnight and Emily in the penultimate stage are Saara Aalto and Matt Terry.

Of the final four, only Emily and Matt have yet to be in the sing-off but can they avoid the most important vote off next weekend?

It's the semi-finals and the final four will be singing two songs again, including a Christmas themed number thanks to the Jukebox.

The X Factor 2016 continues next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV, with special guests Lady GaGa and Zara Larsson.
