Miss Frank voted out of X Factor

Girl group Miss Frank have become the latest act to be booted off ITV1 talent show The X Factor.

The London trio found themselves in the sing-off against hotly-tipped solo artist Danyl Johnson after receiving the fewest votes from viewers.

But after the judges failed to agree on which act to save, it was decided on the result of the original vote.

Mentor Louis Walsh said of his group: "They've got an awful lot more to give, they were at their best last night."

'A total joke'

In the sing-off, Miss Frank - student Graziella Affinita, 25, hairdresser Shaniece Davis, 21, and recruitment consultant Shar Alexandra, 25 - performed Rose Royce's Love Don't Live Here Any More while Johnson sang his original audition song, With A Little Help From My Friends.

After Johnson's rendition Simon Cowell said: "I've never been so surprised in my life.

"If this is your last performance, I've never heard someone going out on such a high. I think it's a joke that you're in the position you're in, a total joke."

On hearing their X Factor journey was over, Affinita said the group still planned to stay together.

Meanwhile, the X Factor finalists are set to release a cover of Michael Jackson's You Are Not Alone to raise money for London's Great Ormond Street Hospital.

They will perform the track for the first time during the results show next week.
