MK1 X-Factor Phoneline Confusion, Will This Lead to a New Scandal?

The X-Factor duo MK1, made up of Charlie and Sim, both from London, were voted out of the competition last night (21st Oct 2012). According to Yahoo, the pair already knew that would be the night they'd be ousted, as the band's Twitter followers told them that the voting line wasn't working. Charlie said "We just couldn't understand what was going on last night, a few hours before our performance we got a lot of tweets from our fans telling us that the voting line for MK1 was frozen and they couldn't vote for us so we were getting really worried."

Speaking to Yahoo Charlie said: "We feel that we performed really well on Saturday. We had a really good performance that probably topped a few of the other acts Saturday night so I feel it was quite unfair that we went home... At the same time it's hard when you leave to not speculate the situation. But having all our fans tweeting saying 'you're phone lines are down, what's wrong with your phone lines no one can get through'- it's a bit like, OK what's going on." Sim continued, "It's just proof in the pudding as well that in previous series when that happened, that act ended up in the bottom two."

The pair have no hard feelings towards other contestants, and are merely confused by the allegations, they'd like either Gary Barlow's act Kye Sones - who stayed over MK1 on Sunday - or James Arthur to win. Charlie's on James' side "I'd like him to win in the spirit of winning but I also know that the winner isn't always the one to get the best deal. So I want him to get the furthest and be the best out of the situation." There are now a few trends on Twitter created by the fans of MK1 including #FIXFIXFIX and #xfactorfix. Neither ITV nor X-Factor representatives have commented on the allegations. Everyone loves a scandal, and it looks like this year's X-Factor wont be able to escape its tradition.
