X Factor double elimination confirmed

It has been confirmed that two acts will be eliminated from the X Factor this weekend.

Not one but two acts will be booted off the X Factor this week in a double elimination, ITV has confirmed. The two acts will be kicked off the X Factor during Sunday evening’s results show when the public vote will be revealed.

Earlier this week Frankie Cocozza, mentored by Gary Barlow, was the bookies favourite to be voted off on Sunday with Louis Walsh’ Kitty Brucknell the second favourite – so will the bookies be right and will the two acts be kicked off on Sunday evening?

Another favourite to leave the competition is Misha B who has also been in the bottom two, following the public vote, in recent weeks.

The press may be quick to claim the double eviction is an attempt to boost the X Factor’s ratings which have declined in recent weeks. Saturday evening’s edition of the singing competition was beaten by Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One.

However, the Sunday evening results show has rated better than its Saturday evening counter-parts and have so far beaten the Strictly version. Lady Gaga will perform on the X Factor results show on Sunday.
