The 16-year-old singer from Wales just missed out on reaching the semi-final of the ITV1 singing competition after being booted out of the show.
He said he was sad to leave but that he hoped for a bright future and admitted he would probably be “mobbed” by fans in the street, even after leaving the show.
Daniels is now backing Joe McElderry to win the X Factor competition.
He said: “Hopefully he can do it for Team Cole.”
