Jay James has said he is fine with having lost his X Factor place to Stevi Ritchie because he thinks his fellow contestant is better for the show.
But Jay said he felt no bitterness towards Stevi, who is seen as The X Factor’s joke act for his out-of-tune singing and bizarre performances.

He said: “I think he’s brilliant for the show and if I was at home, I would have been voting Stevi all the way because I think he’s better for the show than me, I do believe that.”
The X Factor continues on ITV on Saturday, when the theme will be Whitney Houston versus Elton John.
