The Risk has become the first act to be eliminated during tonight's double X Factor 2011 elimination. It was a shock result, with the boys being in the bottom three alongside Kitty Brucknell and Johnny Robinson.
Receiving the fewest votes of all the final nine the boys - who were formed at bootcamp and have changed their line up three times in the series - were automatically kicked off.
It was a surprise exit for the boys and viewers, with favourite to leave Frankie being announced safe.
Johnny Robinson was later eliminated by the judges in the sin-off.
