Who left X Factor Celebrity tonight?
The three acts who received the lowest amount of public votes found themselves vulnerable to elimination from the competition.
Unfortunately tonight V5, No Love Lost and Martin Bashir found themselves in the bottom three of The X Factor: Celebrity.
First to leave the competition was Martin Bashir who received the lowest number of public votes.
Speaking to Dermot O’Leary after his exit, Martin said his time on the show had been a “fantastic experience.”
Then it was down to the judges to decide who to save between V5 and No Love Lost after they performed in the sing-off.
V5 went first and performed Lizzo’s Juice and No Love Lost sang I’m Sorry by Joel Corry.
Louis voted to save V5 and so did fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger. In the end, this meant No Love Lost were sent home.
Safe from the public vote tonight was Glee star Kevin McHale who was saved by his mentor Louis Walsh.
Also safe was duo Max and Harvey who were saved by their mentor Simon Cowell.
Vinnie Jones was also saved from the public vote by his mentor Nicole Scherzinger.
Ahead of the tonight’s show journalist Martin Bashir was the favourite to go for the second week running amongst the bookmakers.
However, last week despite forgetting his words he was saved by the public and Jonny was sent packing instead.
Martin was at odds of 4/6 to leave the completion at Ladbrokes and 1/2 at William Hill.
He was closely followed by Try Star at odds of 9/4 at William Hill and No Love Lost at odds of 6/1 at Ladbrokes.
However, against all odds, Try Star made it through to next week.
