    But Dermot was to make an epic blunder as he gave Grace the welcome news she had topped the viewers vote.

    Earlier in the show Dermot revealed for the first time viewers will find out who has received the highest number of votes on each night, with the Saturday and Sunday winner going head-to-head for a glittering fly trip to New York where they will meet Pink. 

    He mistakenly congratulated Grace that she was off to NYC, saying:

    ‘You’re off to see Pink, how does it feel?’

    The judge’s sing-off will be completely scrapped, leaving the voters in complete control of which contestants leave the show.

    Whilst judges previously had the final show over which of the two hopefuls with the lowest public votes would leave following a tense sing-off, the contestant with the lowest numbers will now leave immediately. 

    Sunday night’s show will see Nicole Scherzinger’s Overs category of  Matt Linnen, Tracy Leanne Jefford and Kevin Davy White perform, with the former Pussycat Doll bringing back Talia Dean, 32, for her wild card.

    She will be joined by an injured Simon Cowell, who picked Rak-Su, Sean Price and Conor Price and The Cutkelvins for his Groups, with the public bringing back Jack and Joel as the wild card.
