She may have been a casualty of Louis Walsh's bumbling indecision, but X Factor loser Carolynne Poole isn't holding any grudges against the judge who ultimately sent her packing.

Last night's show saw Louis change his mind about the act he wished to send home when Carolynne found herself in the bottom two alongside Rylan Clark, opting to send the vote to deadlock after initially choosing to save the country singer.
However, she has said that she had always expected Louis not to save her.
Speaking of the controversy on This Morning, she told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "Its really weird because I like Louis, I really do, I've still got a soft spot for Louis - you know what he's like, he's been like that forever.
"And as soon as I was in the bottom two with Rylan I thought 'that's it' because I know the show loves Rylan and Rylan's one of my friends since boot camp and I really don't like that its created an opportunity for people to be really nasty to Rylan because he is nice," she continued.
The ex-Fame Academy finalist previously made it to Louis' judges house last year, but he didn't take her through to the live shows, choosing Johnny Robinson, Goldie Cheung, Jonjo Kerr and Kitty Brucknell instead.
When asked if she expected Louis to save her out of loyalty, Carolynne said: "No! Louis is Louis - he likes what he likes. I still like Louis. No hard feelings at the end of the day."
Carolynne - who broke down in tears during the interview - also revealed that Gary Barlow really was as angry as he appeared on TV after he walked off the show's set live on air.
"Gary was fuming. We couldn't really talk properly because we get dragged everywhere afterwards but I didn't want to look at him too much because I was getting upset.
