Craig Colton last night became the 11th act to leave this year's X Factor competition. The 22-year-old former biscuit factory worker was matched at a high of 7.2 in the 11th Elimination market, but became the favourite to go at around 2.8 after a poor performance on Saturday night. Colton's elimination wasn't straightforward however. Amelia Lily - voted back into the competition just last week - found herself in the bottom two after the public vote, and after a tense sing-off the four judges couldn't decide who should leave. That meant the outcome went to deadlock for the first time this year, and unfortunately for Colton it was he who finished rock bottom of this week's public vote. Marcus Collins remains the favourite to win this year's competition, the 23-year-old scouser is now...

I feel like I've said this many times in recent years when discussing the shenanigans of Reality TV but I'll say it again; only in the land of The X Factor. Only on The X Factor can you get a contestant eliminated in week one, confess to being happy at being off the show, sing (sorry shout) to a disinterested audience at my local town's firework display, get matched at 1000.0 in the Winner market, and then from almost nowhere, challenge for favouritism to be crowned this year's X Factor winner. You couldn't make it up, except in X Factor land we could, and probably should have. True, I felt the decision to eliminate Amelia Lily so early was a wrong one, and I said as much here. But I'm not convinced that any act should have been brought back with just four weeks of the competition...

Kitty Brucknell last night became the 10th contestant to be eliminated from this year's X Factor competition. The quirky extrovert - who was matched at a high of 3.75 in the 10th Elimination market - arguably gave her worst performance of the series on Saturday night and looked a tad dejected during her rendition of the Queen hit Don't Stop Me Now. That was enough for her odds to shrink to a low of just 1.54, and punters who backed her will have had few worries once it was announced she would be in a sing-off with Misha Bryan. Mentor Louis Walsh understandably saved his own act (Brucknell) but the other three mentors - Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland, and Tulisa Contostavlos - all decided to save Bryan. Brucknell's exit means Walsh has become the first mentor to lose all his acts. After...
