Who left The X Factor tonight? Bella Penfold and Shan eliminated in shock result

X Factor star Bella Penfold became the first to be immediately eliminated tonight after coming bottom of the vote – leaving viewers utterly gobsmacked.

The 19-year-old, who was previously favourite to win the competition, thanked mentor Simon Cowell for changing her life.

Shan became the second contestant to leave after the result went to deadlock.

Bella expressed her unhappiness following her performance last night, so wasn’t too surprised by her exit.
