Jamie Afro - X-Factor depressed and demoralised me.

Jamie Archer aka Jamie Afro has said he found his experience on the X-Factor "depressing" and "demoralising".

Speaking after he was voted of the show yesterday, Jamie said: "It was really demoralising for me, because it made me feel like 'Is it me? Am I being difficult? No-one knows what to do with me - maybe there just aren't any songs?' but I just got on with it really."

He denied reports that he had planned to walk of the show but admitted his relationship with Simon Cowell, his mentor on the show, occasionally came to boiling point.

"I didn't say I was leaving, I just said 'Maybe it's the wrong show for me'. It was after we did Unchained Melody and we tried it, and I had to change my song last minute.

"I said at this point 'Maybe this show isn't really the right show for me because we keep having to change my song, which means we quite clearly don't know what to do with me'."

Jamie struck by X-Factor throat bug.

Jamie Archer has reportedly lost his voice after being struck down by virus. The 34-year-old has lost his voice and is battling to be fit for Saturday’s live show.

Jamie has been advised to save his voice and not to speak until then. Lloyd Daniels, Olly Murs and twins John and Edward have all been struck down by the bug.

It would be a bit of disaster if all five are forced to pull out, the might need to rename the show the Lemsip-Factor of something similar.
