X Factor singer Chloe-Jasmine Whichello has revealed she is planning her revenge on Simon Cowell - by naming a new hamster after him and watching it run round in circles.

The 23-year-old model, who went to Wells Cathedral School, lost the sing-off against eight-piece boyband Stereo Kicks on last night's show, where the TV mogul told her that she lacked passion.

It meant a double elimination for her mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who also said goodbye to another of her acts Stephanie Nala.

Whichello said she was unhappy that Cowell appeared to be preserving his own acts and then teasing his fellow judges.

She said: "I respect him very much as a businessman. His brainchild of The X Factor is spectacular.

"What I didn't agree with was, he had all of his acts secured and sat down on the panel to intimidate the other judges."

She added: "I'm now about to purchase a hamster, call it Simon Cowell, and it's going to be running around a kennel."

What next for Ollie and Overload Generation?

It's the second week of live shows for the X Factor this weekend, with our region still represented by Chloe Jasmine from Wells and Warmley's Jake Sims with his band Stereo Kicks. They both made it through last Sunday thanks to votes from the public.

But it marked the end of the road for boyband Overload Generation, featuring Ollie Garland, also from Warmley near Bristol. They lost out after a sing-off.

Ollie and his mum Naomi came into our studio earlier to chat to Ian & Kylie about what's next for the group:
