However the loveable clown has recently admitted that he feels “guilty” that he is still in the competition.

After Paul Akister left the show in a shock elimination this week, Stevi spoke on The Xtra Factor, saying he felt “really, really deflated”.

“I’m happy [that I’m through] and I’m really thankful the public have got me through, I really am,” he said. “I can’t thank them enough.

“But downstairs, I was just crying. [Bottom two act] Jay has been with me since Boot Camp and gave an emotional performance, and Paul was one of the best singers in the competition.”

He added: “Part of me just feels a little bit guilty. I just feel really guilty and deflated and for me, getting emotional… I just feel like that now. Words can’t describe it.”

True to his nature, Stevi had nothing but good things to say about Paul and his future success, stating: “He’ll get a record deal. He will. He’s too much of a waste [otherwise].”

The X Factor continues on Saturday (15th November) on ITV.
