Simon Cowell made an absolutely savage gaff during the X Factor results show, accidentally saying he was sending his own act home during the judges' head-to-head vote.
Gifty, Ryan Lawrie and Four of Diamonds were left in the bottom three, and after Ryan was saved by the official app vote, Gifty and Four of Diamonds went into the sing-off.
Simon was first up to vote and he accidentally told Dermot he wanted Gifty to go, before then realising his mistake and annoucing he had meant to say Four of Diamonds should be booted.
Watch Cowell's brutal mistake here...
The votes of Cowell's fellow judges meant that it was Gifty who lost her place in the ITV competition.
When Dermot asked Gifty what went wrong, she said: "I don't know."
Gifty did not look impressed at Cowell's mistake and looked even angrier after she was chucked out of the contest.
Here's fans had to say about the fiasco...
"Simon the name of the act you are sending home" "gifty" I AM DEAD :joy::joy::joy::joy:

Simon Cowell sent home Gifty accidentally because production were telling the other judges over their earphones. Messy production. #XFACTOR

Anyone else reckon it might have been a Freudian slip from Cowell?
