Eliminated X Factor act 2 Shoes have said it would be "really, really wrong" if Charley's pregnancy had been a factor in their elimination on Sunday. Wacky conspiracy theories on internet message boards have accused show producers for dumping the girls due to the expected third shoe.
The Essex duo had advised show producers at bootcamp that Charley was expecting, and would be around 8 months gone if she had made it to the final in December.
Some fans have accused the show's bosses of using the weekend's twist to avoid problems with the girls later down the line.
One claimed: "The producers were worried about the stress the show may cause her"
Speaking to The Mirror, Charley said: "The whole way through I haven't not done things, I've kept going through times that were really, really hard. And I think if it was because of that then that's really, really wrong.
"But Tulisa as a person, I don't think she's like that. She's a very, very beautiful person inside and out."
