  Audley becomes first to leave Fame Academy
Updated 10 August 2003, 11.38
Gary wins the vote - and hugs Audley
Audley Anderson has become the first person to be expelled from the new series of Fame Academy.

The 31-year-old's fellow students voted for him to leave the house.

They decided to keep 21-year-old Gary Phelan instead.

Moments earlier, the Fame Academy tutors had voted to save 26-year-old Louise Griffiths.

Audley, Gary and Louise got the least amount of votes from the public.

Three of the four tutors chose to save Louise.

Then seven students voted to keep in Gary, leaving Audley with just four votes.

Audley, from Surrey, sang My Girl on the night, dedicating it to his mum because it was her birthday.

"I felt the pressure today. I wasn't the Audley I wanted to be," he said.

Speaking about the Fame Academy vocal coaches, he added: "I could see the disappointment in Carrie and David's faces and I wanted the earth to swallow me up."

But he wasn't too upset.

"It was amazing - I'm really going to miss it. The whole experience was brilliant," he said of his time in the Academy.

The 12 remaining students will be singing live on BBC One again on Wednesday - when another one will be expelled.
