But the teenager insisted she was
"fine" with her mentor opting out.
"I'm glad Misha's there because she is
so deserving of being there, she works
so hard, she wants it so badly, it's so
true that she deserved it more than I
did," Devlin said.
"I'm not X Factor material, and I've
said this from the audition, I'm just
who I am. I don't think it's what The X
Factor wanted. I'm just glad they still

Ah, lucky us! The adorable
and affable Joey Essex called
us this afternoon to talk about
his favourite Finalists, his
dating technique and to reveal
what’s really going on
between him and Jessica
Tell us, was Saturday's show reem?
It was reem, absolute quality. The Finalists
sounded incredible – even better than on
the TV! I loved Little Mix and I didn’t agree
with Gary. They’ve got a winning R ‘n’ B
sound and they should stick with it.
Who's your vote to win?
Little Mix! If not, then Craig or Amelia.
She’s fit. I think Tulisa and Kelly are great
judges too. If those two came to Essex, I’d
take them to my favourite restaurant in
South Woodford called The Bel-Sit
followed by a bit of club action – we’d
reserve a table and dance all night.
So, are you dating Jessica Wright?
Ah, she’s a lovely girl. We chat every day
and we’ve snogged a few times. It could
potentially develop into a relationship so
watch this space.
You’re quite good at pulling, aren’t
I do alright. My favourite chat-up line is 'Do
I know you?' I follow this up by pretending

Yes, I say ‘excited united’ all the time and
‘numsay’ which translated means ‘you
know what I’m saying?’
Tell us a secret…
I wear my socks inside out. I can’t put
them on any other way – I reckon I must
suffer from OCD.
I can skateboard pretty well.
Do you fancy Essex girls?
I do, but I think the ladies need to ease up
on the fake tan and bleach a bit. I prefer
natural looking make-up, but the girls on
the show are gorgeous though.
Are you and Mark Wright arch
Not at all – I’m really close mates with him.
Just the other week we went out in London
on the razz together and woke up the
following morning with very sore heads.
And finally, how sexy do you think you
I’d give myself 9 and a half out of ten. I
don’t wanna sound too cocky!

Mark Wright has
revealed how the
pressure of his hit
show The Only Way Is
Essex drove him to
Mark said the hype surrounding his
womanising image got so bad that
he begged producers to tone it
He continued: "I am so grateful to
TOWIE for putting me where I am
today, but I did get upset a lot over
the way I was portrayed.
"My family and friends, and my sister
Jessica, would get upset too.
"I had several discussions with
producers about it."
In The Sun's exclusive interview,
Mark, 24, also revealed he now can't
wait to capitalise on his I'm A
