Lesbian contestant Jade Ellis was voted off on tonight’s X Factor (28 October).
The 25-year-old mother from London performed White Flag by Dido in a sing-off with fellow bottom two act Union J.
She was chosen to stay by her mentor Tulisa, but the other judges Nicole Scherzinger, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh opted for the boyband.
Ellis said: ‘To me it’s just been an amazing experience, I want to thank you guys for your amazing critique, and for me, my life starts now.’
When making her choice, the Pussycat Doll judge said: ‘No matter what happens, I know you’re going to get a record deal.’
On Saturday (27 October), Ellis sang ‘Freak Like Me’ by Sugababes on the show’s Halloween themed episode of the British reality competition.
Despite having a long-term girlfriend, Ellis admitted she had a crush on Pussycat Doll judge.
She said: ‘I hardly ever remember anything she says to me because I am just staring at her and thinking "You are so beautiful".’
