X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed how The Risk haven't taken the news that Ashley has quit the group very well, with the no nonsense judge saying the remainder of the group were left in the dark by Ashley's decision.
Tulisa said: "I can’t lie, I am devastated. More so the boys are devastated.
"[Ashley] was feeling a certain way, basically he couldn’t hack the pressure and this wasn’t what he wanted to do. He said he got a better idea of the industry and it wasn’t for him. The boys were left in the dark, we had no idea this was how he was feeling."
And Tulisa revealed: "He dropped it on us two days before the live show and the boys were like ‘you absolute dick’.”
Ashley has been replaced in the group by Ashford from eliminated group Nu Vibe, and with only 48 hours to prepare before singing together in front of 12 million, it's going to be tough....
