Aiden voted off X Factor in shock result
Former bookies favourite, Aiden Grimshaw, has been voted off the X-Factor.
Despite being up against the controversial Katie Waisse,l Grimshaw was booted off the show after receiving fewer votes from the public.
The 18-year-old was forced to leave after the judges were split 50/50; taking the decision to deadlock.
Grimshaw looked visibly shaken after hearing he would be leaving he said "You win some, you lose some.
"My friend texted me earlier and said there was a leak on Twitter that I was third from bottom."
However, a X-Factor spokesman has said that no one knew the outcome of the public vote until seconds before it was announced by host Dermot O'Leary.
An X Factor spokesman told the Mail: "People make lots of unfounded predictions on the internet about the order of the contestants based on various popularity polls. We do not believe there is a leak."
It was Louis Walsh who was last to vote, forcing the decision to deadlock after Simon and Cheryl had voted to save Katie and Dannii had voted for Aiden. Walsh said: "It's really difficult one. I'm going to save the person I think has the most to give in the competition. The person I'm sending home is Katie."
After Aiden left the show his mentor Dannii paid tribute via her Twitter account. She wrote "My utmost respect to Aiden. I have loved working with him on X Factor. TeamMinogue will miss him I and wish him the VERY BEST! Dx."
While members of One Direction took to Twitter to vent their anger at Aiden's exit.
Louis Tomlinson wrote: "Not only was he one of my best friends, he was one of the best singers in the competition, yet people who can't sing a note in tune are still here. Wow."
Aiden's exit comes after a stormy week on the show when the judges were at each other's throat. With Simon and Louis and Dannii and Louis coming to blows over the contestants performances of Elton John songs.
Katie is the favourite act to be eliminated next with odds of 10/11 with Boylesports. Wagner has odds of 5/2 with Boylesports that he will be the next to go while Paige Richardson has odds of 5/1 with Boylesports to be eliminated.
