The X Factor judgesYOUTUBE/XFACTOR/ITV AWELSH contestant's X Factor dream is over despite wowing the judges during initial auditions.

Jacqueline Faye, who is originally from Wales but who now lives on a farm in Oxfordshire, came close to securing a spot at the judges' houses but ultimately missed out.

Previously Jacqueline stunned the X Factor judges - Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field - with a wonderful rendition of Cilla Black's 1960s hit You're My World.

The 53-year-old received an unanimous four yeses from the panel, and found a super fan in Robbie Williams, who was effusive in his praise for her performance.

And she initially was given a seat in the Six Chair Challenge round of the singing competition in last night's episode.

Singing for a spot in Ayda's "Overs" group, Jacqueline was given the fourth seat in her category after a performance of Bring Him Home from the musical Les Miserables.

Robbie said: "You're all that's great about Great Britain."

While wife and co-judge Ayda, simply added: "I would like you to take a seat Jacquelin."

However, later on in the episode, 35-year-old singer Antonino Spadaccino replaced Jacqueline in seat number four following a rendition of Rihanna's Stay.

Ayda said: "Antonino, I love the tone of your voice, I'm going to give you a seat. Please take seat number four [Jacqueline's seat]."

Simon responded in shock to Ayda's choice, letting out a "woah".

Off-stage, Jacqueline said: "I'm gutted. I am gutted. But hey."

The lucky six contestants that remain in the chairs go on to take a place at judges' houses - the stage before the live finals kick off.

And new for 2018, the Golden X has been added to the Six Chair Challenge - meaning each judge can press the Golden X for a guaranteed place for Judges' Houses.
