The 16-year-old ended up in a sing-off with James Arthur and despite being saved by her mentor Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh, she lost out when the judges sent the vote to Deadlock.

Tweeting about the result late last night, Cowell said: "Ella! Gone??? Unbelievable."

Judge Louis Walsh described last night's bottom two acts as the most "gobsmacking" in the show's nine-year history.
