X Factor: Stevi Ritchie voted off in double elimination

Stevi Ritchie became the second act to leave The X Factor during this weekend’s double eviction.

Stevi found himself in the bottom two alongside Andrea Faustini last night.

Faustini performed ‘Stop’, while Ritchie sang a rendition of ‘This Is the Moment’.

Judge Mel B chose to send home Stevi and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini agreed.

Simon Cowell stuck with his act and sent home Faustini, which left Louis Walsh with the deciding vote, who sent home Ritchie.

“The whole experience for me has been an absolute dream,” said Stevi.

“I just want to thank all the general public at home for keeping me in…and my best friend and mentor Simon Cowell.”

Only The Young were evicted on Saturday night.

X Factor continues next Saturday on ITV at 8pm, with a jukebox-themed show.
