X Factor's Sami Brookes has said that she wanted mentor Louis Walsh to take the vote to deadlock during tonight's elimination. Louis was left with the deciding vote between Sami and fellow Overs contestant Kitty Brucknell.
Speaking on the Xtra Factor, Sami told hosts Olly and Caroline: "All my friends had voted for me so much, I wish it has went to deadlock sweetheart!"
But despite her exit this evening, Sami was positive about her future.
She said: "I’m on The X Factor, the biggest show in the UK. I didn’t come on here because I think I’m a popstar. I’m 31, a size 18, I don’t think I’m a popstar but I want to sing, I want to be in the theatre, I want to be on the stage."
The 31-year-old Welsh bar maid turned singing sensation added: "Thank you so much for this opportunity and I will always be very grateful. I got given a lifeline to come back to the show and I just think this is just the beginning."
