X Factor's Rachel Hylton gets the boot

But… we thought she’d already left twice? Apparently not. This week's X Factor saw the 6 remaining contestants making a meal of Take That songs, as well as previous losers returning to the stage for one last taste of fame before their inevitable departure into obscurity.

Rachel Hylton was ousted by judges after singing the ironically named ‘I’m Not Leaving’ (errr… yes you are) after reaching the bottom two and having to compete against JLS, the boyband come shiny eyed chumpfest mentored by Louis Walsh. However despite being consistently popular with the judges, the panel decided that Rachel’s time had come and sent her packing. Here's Rachel the day after being voted out; she seems to have taken it on the chin.
