Filed under: Celebrity X Factor

It was all up to the public tonight, with the act polling the least number of votes going out.

After singing ‘La Vida Loca’ and ‘I Love you Baby’, the chefs were simply outclassed tonight, with the other acts all upping their game.

Their departure leaves Mat Steven, Chris Moyles and Lucy Benjamin still in the competition.

Nikki Saunderson leaves X Factor: Battle of the Stars

Filed under: Celebrity X Factor

After the closest audience vote this series, the bottom two tonight consisted of The Chefs and, for the second night running, Nikki Sanderson. With Simon staying loyal to his act, The Chefs he said “Nikki, I like you, but I’m mentoring the boys so, I’m gonna send you home.” Sharon stayed loyal to her own act Nikki and with Louis holding the casting vote, he chose The Chefs to stay, ‘on entertainment value’, whilst saying he thought Nikki’s future was guaranteed and that although she had been in the bottom two for the second night running that she would “definitely get a recording contract”.

Nikki, who was suffering from tonsilitis, tipped Matt to go all the way and win the competition. Fighting off tears, she explained that she could understand Louis’ decision because the chefs were good entertainment value.
