The vast majority of Sunday night's X Factor viewers believe that the elimination of Carolynne was a fix. The show saw Rylan Clarke and Carolynne Poole perform against each other in a sing-off to fight for their place.
It was then taken to deadlock when Judge Louis couldn't decide who to pick - but the choice was obvious. The plot thickened when a producer was spotted whispering into Louis's ear whilst he was hesitating on his decision on who to choose.
The choice was between 'character' Rylan (who can barely hold a note but is good 'entertainment value') or Carolynne, who was one of the strongest (albeit boring) singers in the competition..
Every year the X factor acts as a tabloid filling machine - churning out rumour after rumour and speculation after speculation. This year has been no different.
