It was a tough ol’ night for Mel B yesterday.
Unfortunately movie Night at X Factor was the last that we will see of Mel’s act, Jake Quickenden, after he found himself getting unceremoniously eliminated from the show.
This year’s eye candy was sent packing after an undeniably dodgy sing off against Louis Walsh’s act Only The Young.
Poor Jake was slammed by the judges as Cheryl and Simon Cowell didn’t even do their usual hesitation when it came to choosing between the two acts, and deadlock wasn’t even presented as an option.
In fact, the only judge who had anything nice to say about Jake Quickers was Louis, who gushed about what a nice guy he is and apologised for his harsh critique on Saturday night, before giving him his marching orders and saving his own act.
But there was somebody who seemed a lot more upset than Jake about the fact that the hottie was leaving the competition, and that was his mentor Mel.
Scary Spice turned out to be not-so scary after all as she openly bawled her eyes out after officially being made one act down, making us feel all kinds of emosh as she rambled on about what a nice guy and hard worker Jake is.
She just really didn’t want the poor guy to go… And who can blame her?
Mel, who is usually big on social media straight after the live shows, was uncharacteristically quiet last night, only sending one direct tweet to Jake, which read: “@JakeQuickenden I love you, you will be missed on the show but not as a friend to me.”

Which we *think* means that she plans to stay friends with Jake… Not that he wasn’t ever a friend to start with.
Poor choice in wording Mel, but we’ll let you off as this was probably written through tears, smeared make-up, and an alcoholic beverage.
Controversially, Jake is yet to reply to his sobbing mentor’s tweet… Despite the fact that he has tweeted a couple of times since she sent it.
Jake got well and truly slated on Saturday night’s show after his rendition of Patrick Swayze’s She’s Like The Wind, with Louis even going low enough to say that he should perhaps spend more time in the studio and less at the gym, with the other judges also criticizing his naked photoshoots.
Erm, thanks for your opinion Lou-Lou and co. but we reckon Jake spends exactly the right amount of time at the gym AND actively encourage him to get naked more often.
Stick to what you know, yeah?
