One of the first four acts to leave 'The X Factor' will be voted back into the show on Saturday.

Fans will see either James Michael, Amelia Lily, 2 Shoes or Jonjo Kerr rejoin the competition in the wake of Frankie Cocozza's shock exit .

Frankie, 18, was allegedly axed from the show after boasting about taking cocaine in front of the show's production staff.

To replace him, ITV bosses have opened the competition up for one of the acts to leave – sent home by their own mentors after the first live show, rather than the public vote – to return.

An 'X Factor' spokesperson said: "The four acts have never been in a public vote so, with Frankie leaving the competition, this is an opportunity for the public to decide who comes back to the show."

The act with the most votes will then be announced and appear on Saturday's show which has a Lady Gaga Vs Queen theme.
