No more Mercy

Shirlena Johnson won't be back on the X Factor.

The single mum grabbed the judges attention on Saturday's show with her wacky version of Duffy's Mercy and was put through to boot camp.

But executives have now decided she should not  continue in the series, in the interests of her welfare.

Shirlena's also been booted out of another competition after seemingly lying about her age.

She told Simon Cowell she was 30.

The single mum from London had also applied for Miss Great Britain saying she was 28 - but the age limit is 29 and she's been dropped.
