Axed X Factor star Craig Colton blamed his exit on a poor song choice.

The ex-biscuit factory worker left the show after going head-to-head with favourite Amelia Lily.

Colton got his marching orders in the first “deadlock” of the series as the four judges failed to reach a clear verdict and it went to public vote.

Colton, who sang the Bond theme Licence To Kill, said the choice of song sealed his fate.
