Jay James Voted Off The X Factor In Big Band Week
Unlucky hopeful loses out to Stevi Ritchie after decision goes to deadlock...
Former Royal Navy fitness instructor Jay James has become the latest contestant to get the boot from this year's series of The X Factor.
And unlike last week, when he survived against Paul Akister, show host Dermot O'Leary quickly revealed that Jay had received the least support and would be packing his bags.
The unlucky singer said: "It's been absolutely incredibly, the people that I have met during this time have just been amazing."
And his mentor SiCo said: "Jay, you've been a gentleman, a really nice guy to work with."
The show boss also dismissed tabloid reports that Jay had been "bullying" other contestants.
Big band week had provided a string of impressive performances from the remaining hopefuls, with Fleur East's retro-flavoured version of Bang Bang perhaps wowing the judges the most.
