Durham singer Geoff Mull said that leaving The X Factor broke his heart. Geoff lost his place during the 'six chair challenge' where the judges have to choose their final six before Judges' Houses. He has been speaking to Rachel Sweeney about his experience on the show.

"The six seat challenge was brutal! My heart was pumping the whole time, losing it to the last boy. So close to judges houses was heart-breaking for me."

– Geoff said he was 'heart-breakingly' close to his dream

This North East vocalist has been singing for six years and is not about to give up now. Geoff is looking for his big break.

"My next steps are to get back to it ASAP and continue to move forward with my new fan base! I'm now looking for a good agent or manager to believe in me and give me a good chance at breaking through into the industry!"

– Geoff says this is not the end of his music career

Geoff did not make it through to the next stage of the ITV show but two North East singers did. Kerrianne Covell from Norton and Lola Saunders from East Boldon will go to the Judges' Houses stage.

However, Geoff thinks it will be very difficult for Cheryl Fernandez-Versini to take both of these acts through to the live shows.

Kerrianne and Lola are in Cheryl's final six

"I don't think Cheryl can take two North East acts through, not with who's left, I'd love to see both get to the live shows as I got along with Lola and Kerrianne. They are two lovely girls with great talent."
