She called the Londoner back on stage at Wembley Arena, after telling the audience: "I've made a mistake. I've made such a big mistake. I want to bring Chloe back."

She then apologised to Chloe, saying: "I want versatility in my group going forward. If I had six girls who all represented the same thing, it would be boring. I want somebody that can do something different each week, you have that for me, and I'm missing that when I look up there.

"I want to put you in my top six. Unfortunately, I don't want to lose anybody but I do want to switch you out."

The 23-year-old was given the place of Irish singer Orla Keogh and joined Lola Saunders, Lauren Platt, Kerrianne Covell, Stephanie Nala and Emily Middlemas in the next stage.
