With this year's show being labelled as the most controversial yet, it seems even the X Factor contestants are airing their opinions of each other.
Favourite-to-win Matt Cardle has accused Simon Cowell of saving Katie Waissel over early favourite Aiden Grimshaw because she is "better for the show" rather than for her singing abilities.
Aiden and Katie were in the bottom two this weekend and Simon's decision to save Katie left the final vote to the public, resulting in Aiden's elimination.
Twenty-seven-year-old Matt said: "In terms of the television show, Aiden was expendable. I was shocked when Simon sent him home, but then Katie is better for the show than Aiden is."
"She gets the coverage – she gets the show attention. He just isn’t like that but he is a much better singer."
Eighteen-year-old Aiden added: "It is an entertainment show – but I can’t see where the entertainment is coming from [with Katie] as she is not doing that well.
He added: "I think it should be more about singing from now on."
