Craig Colton is the latest hopeful to leave The X Factor. The Liverpool lad was sent home after going head to head with Amelia Lily in the sing-off.

Take That star Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos voted to send Amelia Lily home, while former Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland and Louis Walsh wanted to send Craig out of the competition.
