A Newquay teenager has won a place in the final twelve acts of the X Factor, after being forced to choose between being booted out of the competition or losing a member of the group.

Nineteen year old Charlie Rundle was one of the three piece MK1. But, during the group's first audition, the judges said that one singer was not good enough. After a brief onstage discussion, they agreed to become a duo.

On Sunday evening Louis Walsh told Charlie and Sim that he had chosen them as one of his three acts to take through to the finals.

It means that people across the UK will be able to vote for the Cornish singer over the coming weeks.

Charlie told the ITV1 show: "That was the most tense moment of my life ever. We don't want to go home, we don't want to feel that emotion. It's crushing.

"You give all you can. That's all you have. When someone says, 'No, actually, that's not good enough' what else is there?"
