X Factor: Celebrity branded ‘fix’ as The Chase's Jenny Ryan axed
The X Factor: Celebrity viewers were fuming as Jenny Ryan was axed from the show, despite smashing her audition.
The Chase star earned a standing ovation from the judges after performing Queen’s Somebody To Love on last week’s instalment.
However, despite being touted as an early favourite to win, Nicole Scherzinger shocked fans after deciding to send the 37-year-old old packing.
Breaking the news, the Pussycat Dolls singer said: ‘I felt such joy when you performed yesterday, because I felt that you felt joyful.
‘Even though you have such a distinct, unique voice, I just wonder if you’re versatile enough in the live shows.
‘I can’t give you a yes. I’m so sorry, Jenny.’
Instead, Nicole opted to take Victoria Ekanoye, Ricki Lake and Martin Bashir through to the next week’s Live Show with her, as well as Vinnie Jones.
And those watching on at home were livid with her choices, flocking to Twitter to debate the decision.
‘Jenny Ryan was incredible cannot believe she isn’t going to the live shows #XFactorCelebrity,’ one fumed.
‘Disappointed that #Jenny Ryan the Vixen didn’t get through on X factor. She was brilliant,’ another commented.
A Twitter user argued: ‘Could this programme get anymore s**t it’s so fixed Jenny Ryan done so well but gets kicked off WTF. #XFactorCelebrity.’
While a follower added: ‘Sitting watching Celebrity X-Factor absolutely fuming cause Nicole didn’t put through Jenny Ryan. Is she deaf or suhin??? Like suhin is up (sic).’
But we wouldn’t rule out the possibility of Jenny somehow returning as a wild-card next week.
Stranger things have happened…
The X Factor: Celebrity returns next Saturday, live on ITV.
