Treyc Cohen has made a controversial exit from The X Factor. The 26-year-old found herself in the bottom two alongside fellow sing-off veteran Katie Waissel.

Their mentor Cheryl Cole refused to choose between her acts.

After Simon Cowell opted to keep Katie, Cheryl made it clear that she would send the competition into deadlock, depending on how Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh voted.

However, the Girls Aloud singer didn’t get her chance because presenter Dermot O’Leary said they’d go with the majority vote; Dannii Minogue voted to send Katie home and Louis Walsh picked Treyc to go.

Treyc had attempted to save herself with Toni Braxton’s Unbreak My Heart, while Katie opted for soul classic Don’t Give Up On Me by Solomon Burke. She did it – Katie survived again.

It was [supposed to be] American Anthems week on The X Factor, but once again the judges, by and large, didn’t get the message. Compositions such as Kids In America, sung by Brit pop star Kim Wilde and written by her brother Ricky and father Marty, made it into the show.

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole went another round in their bickering. The music mogul aimed a couple of barbed comments in Cheryl’s direction as he critiqued her acts.

While commenting on Cher Lloyd, he said: “I think your mentor got a little bit lazy.” Take a look through the gallery to see how each act fared in another very dramatic weekend of The X Factor.

Matt Cardle has insisted he is single. X Factor favourite Matt Cardle has dismissed reports he is back with his ex-girlfriend as “totally wrong”.

Rumours were rife after pictures appeared in the press showing the pair together, but the 27-year-old painter and decorator said he is on the market.

He said: “I’m single. It is totally wrong but she is a lovely girl and we still talk to each other.”

He also praised his mentor Dannii Minogue, saying: “She is really, really caring and supportive. She is always in contact to make sure we are happy with our songs.”

Matt, who is now 6-4 favourite to win the show, admitted it was “odd” being followed by crowds of screaming fans.

He said: “It’s a bit odd if I’m honest. It is a sign that they are enjoying what we are doing on the weekend.”

But Katie Waissel clearly has no such problems. The 24-year-old tweeted a message to fans on Friday, writing: “I’ll be back out again soon, I promise!! it’s so cute whenever u scream for One Direction I can’t help but scream with you lol!!xxx”

The 11 remaining contenders will perform in Saturday’s show with the results of the public vote unveiled on Sunday.
