X Factor 2016: Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie reunite and she gets tearful


Emily Middlemas has had a tearful reunion with Ryan Lawrie after leaving The X Factor 2016.

It was Emily who left The X Factor this week, just missing out on a spot in the grand final at Wembley Arena.

Emily was in the bottom two sing off against Matt Terry, the first time for both in the danger zone.

But her place in the final slipped away as the judges backed Matt to join Saara Aalto and 5 After Midnight at Wembley next weekend.


On the Xtra Factor, Emily and boyfriend Ryan, who of course also made this year's live shows, exchanged soppy messages to one another.

Ryan told Emily: "I just want to say wow, you've done everyone so proud. you've come 4th on X Factor and you've made everyone so proud, you've made yourself proud, I'm so proud of you.

"I love you so much.

"The future is so bright, so go for it."

"I love you," replied Emily before welling up: "I'm going to end up crying now."

She added on the ITV2 spin-off show: "It's like honestly so amazing and I'm so proud of him, he came 6th out of thousands of people.

"Even that is amazing. I'm really excited for us both, we are determined and hard workers. We're in this together"

On Twitter and the loved up pair continued to gush about one another

"Come on Emily, give it everything you got. You are a superstar in my eyes. @emilymiddlemas_ I love you." Ryan tweeted last night.


With Emily out just three acts remain in the X Factor 2016 and the race to the final is on.

It's shaping up to be the closest run EVER with all three having both been top of the vote and in the sing off.

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