After Frankie Cocozza was kicked off the X Factor earlier this week, Amelia Lily has emerged as the favourite to return in his place.

It was announced yesterday that there would be a public vote to determine who would replaced the 18-year-old, with Amelia, Two Shoes, James Michael and Jonjo Kerr fighting for the votes.

The four acts were eliminated in week one after the judges were forced to axe one of their acts straight away.

Amelia believes she has ‘more to give’ though and has pleaded for people to pick up the phone and vote for her.

She tweeted: “Guys pleaseee vote for me to come back to X Factor n perform this Saturday! It would mean the world to me n I promise I won’t let you down!”

“The number to call to vote for me to get back into TXF will be announced today! Please please vote, I have got so much more to give.”

Confirming the news that these four would go head to head for a place in the live shows, X Factor bosses said they were giving the power to the public.

A statement read: “The four acts have never been in a public vote so, with Frankie leaving the competition, this is an opportunity for the public to decide who comes back to the show.”

Amelia isn’t the only act taking to her Twitter page to get some votes either.

James Michael said: “Woooow the phone number to vote for me 2 go back on TXF will be announced 2day! If u love my music please vote.”

Tulisa – who was Two Shoes’ Mentor before giving them the boot in week one then tweeted: “Getting ready for the X Factor press conference. When the lines open who’s getting behind my girls?! Let’s bring back Two shoes!”

As mentioned, Amelia is the favourite to return at 1/8, followed by James Michael at 4/1, Two Shoes at 10/1 and finally Jonjo at 20/1.
