X Factor stars Only the Young, featuring Charlie George from Canterbury, kicked off the competition

Only the Young have been booted out of the X Factor.

Only the Young, featuring Canterbury teen Charlie George, received the fewest amount of votes and were kicked off tonight's (Saturday) show.

Charlie, 17, battled it out with bandmates Parisa Tarjomani, 20, from Margate and Betsy-Blue English and Mike Bromley.

One more act will leave the competition tomorrow night.

They won the judges round with their rendition of Elton John's Something About The Way You Look Tonight but seemingly failed to impress the public.

Charlie spoke to Dermot O'Leary after they found out they were leaving. He said: "I am so proud of these guys. We give it our best every week and we will carry on doing that."

Parisa said: "We are so grateful that the public have kept us in so far.

"We've had an incredible time and this is not the end of Only The Young."

Earlier on in the show, judge Simon Cowell even said he believed the band would make it through to the next round.

He said: "Before that performance you would've been one of the favourites to leave tonight, but not after that.

"The competition would be sad to see you go."

Mel B said: "I have to say this is why we all love you guys. You're young, fun and the vocals are always on point.

"I want to join the group. Every week you deliver. I love it."

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini said: "This is testament to you guys. The theme could've hindered you but you did a great version and i think you found your niche".

David Guetta performed his new song with Emile Sande in tonight's show.

The remaining hopefuls are Andrea Faustini, Fleur East, Stevi Ritchie, Ben Haenow, Stereo Kicks and Lauren Platt.

The bookies favourite to win the competition is still Fleur who continues to wow the judges.
