X Factor's Monica Michael is hot favourite to return as a wildcard this year.

Contestant Monica was dropped on last week's show by Girls mentor Rita Ora, after performing a self-penned track at Judges' Houses, and her elimination was met with uproar on social media.

Since the show aired, Monica has found herself receiving tons of support from fans who want to see her back in the competition as a wildcard entry, and it could just happen.

Today (27 October), the London-born singer fuelled speculation she could be returning to the talent show with a cryptic tweet, hinting she's had some unexpected news.

Monica wrote: "So much for thinking I was getting a few days off! ;)"

Ooh, what does that winky face mean?!

This series of X Factor has been full of twists from the start, and Simon Cowell has already hinted axed contestants may make a comeback.

"Would I like to bring back the wildcard this series? I would do it in a heartbeat," he admitted on ITV's Lorraine yesterday (26 October).

"But it's not my decision. Well, it's not just my decision. I have influence over what we do but it's more complicated than you may think. We have to run ideas past a lot of people!"

Well Simon would have full approval from fellow judge Nick Grimshaw. Asked who he would reinstate if he had a wild card, Nick told Digital Spy he'd pick Monica based on her powerful performance at the judges houses.

"Maybe Monica. I love Monica" he said, "I thought it was very courageous - it took balls tonight to do a song which she's written.

"I thought it was very moving and really emotional. So I'd love to see Monica come back. I think she's got something."

Reckon Monica will be returning to the X Factor? The show continues on Saturday (31 October) at 8pm.
