Charley -- I hope baby didn't get me boot
'X Factor' reject and mother-to-be Charley Bird said she hoped her pregnancy had not played a part in her group being given the boot.
She and musical partner Lucy Texeira were knocked out of the ITV1 show on Sunday night when their mentor Tulisa Contostavlos chose to send Essex duo 2 Shoes home.
She said she would be "really upset" if it had any bearing on the result.
"The whole way through I haven't not done things, I've kept going through times that were really, really hard. And I think if it was because of that then that's really, really wrong," she said.
"But Tulisa as a person, I don't think she's like that. She's a very, very beautiful person inside and out."
Other 'X Factor' reject Amelia Lily said her elimination from the show felt like "having your heart ripped out".
The 16-year-old student broke down on Sunday's live show when mentor Kelly Rowland dropped her.
