X Factor hopeful Mason Noise has insisted the show is NOT fixed, following his exit.

On Saturday night (21 November), Mason was immediately eliminated from The X Factor, following a flash public vote. He had earlier sang his rendition of Nick Jonas' 'Jealous', but failed to win over the viewers at home.

Despite telling fans on Twitter he was "relieved" to have been voted out of the competition, Mason has defended The X Factor since being given boot. Hitting back at claims the show is fixed, Mason has insisted this year's series has been the "most unpredictable" yet.

After Olly Murs' live slip up, many have hit out at The X Factor and branded the competition to be fixed. Olly had accidentally told Monica Michael she had left the show, before reading out the public vote.

While he has since stressed he didn't know who had been voted out at that point, many took Olly's mistake as proof that the competition must be a fix.

Quick to jump to its defence, though, was Mason Noise. Fix claims had surfaced previously after Mason was controversially brought back to replace Tom Bleasby at Nick Grimshaw's Judges' Houses.

Following his outburst at Six Chair Challenge, many accused Mason of staging the scene at Wembley Arena and slammed Grimmy for giving the hopeful a second chance.

Insisting that was not the case, Mason has now told The Daily Star: "[The X Factor] isn't fixed. A lot of people though what I did was fixed, but it so wasn't."

"A lot of people were in total shock after what happened," he continued. "A lot of people said, 'Mason's back. It was all a plan.' But it was literally the most spontaneous thing that has ever happened on The X Factor."

Reiterating that The X Factor cannot be fixed, Mason pointed out that some of the show's early favourites have already been axed from the competition.

Fans were shocked to see Seann eliminated in week two of the live shows.

He added: "You can't tell what is going to happen. Just to prove it, Alien [Uncovered] going the first week and Seann [Miley Moore] the next week when he was bookies' favourite to win. Whoever would have said that would happen?

"I was 2/1 favourite to go after 'Men In Black' and I stayed. It's been the most unpredictable year which proves it's no fix."

Mason was the first of two acts to be eliminated this weekend. His exit came before Anton Stephans was sent home by the judging panel.

Anton had faced Che Chesterman in the bottom two, but failed to keep his place in the competition after Rita Ora, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Nick Grimshaw voted to keep Che.

His exit followed his clash with Grimmy the night before. Nick had told Anton he thought his performance was "fake", after the singer sang 'One Sweet Day' for Love and Heartbreak week. Anton was quick to insist he wasn't putting on an act and has since hit out at Nick again for his comments.

Slamming the Radio 1 DJ, he said: "The other judges have experience with performing or at least nurturing and bringing us worldwide popstars. They don't just play music on the radio and have famous friends."
