After various reports, it's finally been confirmed that Lucy Spraggan will not be returning to the X Factor 2012.

An official statement reads: "Lucy isn't well enough to perform this weekend so she has decided to withdraw from the competition. We are all sorry to see her go and wish her all the best for the future. She has been a fantastic contestant."

Lucy herself has said: "I am gutted not to be able to continue on this journey but I'm not well enough to perform. To accept another free pass having missed last weekend would not be fair on the others in the competition. I wish them all well. I would like to express my thanks to everyone who has supported me. There is no way that this setback will prevent me from fulfilling my ambition. You'll be hearing from me again very soon."

Her X Factor mentor, Tulisa, said: "I'm so sorry to lose Lucy from the competition, I have had a brilliant time working with her and I hope I can continue to mentor her in the future. I now count her as a friend as she is an amazing girl."

The X Factor has noted that no one will replace Lucy in the show and also that, only one act will be leaving this weekend.
