Viewers were left cringing on Sunday night after X Factor host Olly Murs made a MAJOR slip up by announcing the deadlock results before being handed the top secret’ envelope.

Following an intense sing-off between contestants Monica Michael and Anton Stephans, the X Factor judges failed to come to a decision on who should stay in the show.

As a result, the vote then went to ‘deadlock’ meaning that the public had the final say.


But before revealing that the vote had gone to deadlock, Olly shocked fans by announcing that singer Monica Michael was leaving the competition.

After attempting to backtrack on the slip up, it became clear that Olly had simply revealed the results too soon.

Viewers have now asked if Olly should continue hosting the show, with one tweeting: "Beginning of the end of Olly Murs career tonight ... Oops."

Another added: "The next person leaving xfactor is Olly Murs. Deadlock."

Olly took to Twitter to apologise for the tremendous error, writing: "I apologise to everyone tonight I made a massive f*** up at the end. It was so tense!! I'm still learning & hope that never happens again!"
