Eoghan Quigg wannabe Lloyd Daniels, 16, survived another sing-off last night as afro-haired Jamie Archer, 34, was sent tumbling out of X Factor by the public.

This all came after he responded to Louis Walsh’s criticism with the quip: “Only the public’s opinion counts” – unfortunately for him, he was correct.


Another talking point was the fact that for a fourth week running the judges failed to reach a decision on who should go home, although this time Simon Cowell shirked the responsibility of the final vote.

The show boss voted to save Jamie but looked dumbfounded when the public voted him out. Earlier Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole had decided to save Lloyd, but Danni had leveled the scores by voting to keep the 34 year-old.

Before making his exit the rocker said: “I just want to thank everyone who supported me. It’s not the end, it’s just the beginning.”

Beginning of the end more like.

Olly is now favourite to win the show with bookies cutting his odds to 2/1. The twins have been cut from 12/1 to 8/1.

Ladbrokes spokesman Nick Weinberg said of the twins’ popularity: “The greatest upset in reality TV history remains on course. We’re sweating over the potential payout.”
