Ashley looked upset but he wished the other students the best of luck for the future.

Nigel can't believe he's won the public vote
But it was a good night for dad-of-four Nigel, who the public overwhelmingly voted to stay in the Academy.

He got 41 per cent of the votes after singing a rousing version of In The Midnight Hour.

And Pippa's still in too, after eight out of 10 of her fellow contestants voted to keep her in the Academy.

Pippa sings her heart out
They all said she's improved loads during the week and that she'd done a brilliant performance of Nelly Furtado's I'm Like A Bird on the night.

There were also some impressive group performances, including Camilla, Ainslee and Lemar's version of Pride (In The Name of Love) by U2 and star student Marli's version of Torn by Natalie Imbruglia.
