I didn't deserve to go, says Treyc

Treyc Cohen has claimed that she gave a better performance than sing-off rival Katie Waissel - and did not deserve to be axed from the show.

But she said she understood show judge Cheryl Cole's controversial stance in failing to cast her vote in the contest, which led to her being kicked out. Cheryl drew criticism for refusing to cast a vote in the contest when two acts she mentors finished in the bottom two and went to the sing-off stage.

Treyc said that, based on her performance, she should have gone through to the next stage, instead of Katie.

Asked by ITV1's This Morning host Philip Schofield whether she thought to herself 'I sang that better', Treyc said: "Oh yeah, definitely. I know I finished my song and put my all into it, so if it was based on that then yeah, I definitely feel I should have gone through."

And when Philip asked her whether she felt the result was fair, she responded: "Probably not, looking at it that way, then, no."

Treyc said she held no bitterness about Cheryl's decision.

She told This Morning: "Do you know what? I feel good. I'm not bitter. I'm a true believer in 'everything happens for a reason'. But when it came to the judges making their decision, when Cheryl said she couldn't pick, I completely understand why she never."

Ofcom confirmed that it had received complaints about Cheryl's refusal to cast her vote for either of the bottom two acts during last night's ITV1 results show.

However it is understood the media regulator would be unable to act as it would be beyond its remit.
