15 year-old schoolgirl Emily Nakanda has quit The X Factor competition, withdrawing with immediate effect. Emily will not sing in the competition on Saturday’s big band night, and for her, the competition is over. Emily chose to withdraw from the competition following stories which have appeared in the tabloids over the last couple of days. She is pictured, on mobile phone footage and video stills, allegedly carrying out so-called happy-slapping attacks. In one video, Emily, still in her school uniform, is seen fighting with a girl. In another, her group of friends is seen laughing and threatening another teenager. One of her friends is holding what could have been a weapon. Although the teens could have just been messing about, the video has received much attention due to the current spate of knife crime among young people. Emily, from North London, was just fourteen when she auditioned and is the youngest contestant ever to have made The X Factor finals. She was very proud to be representing her age group in the competition. Official statements Speaking as it became clear Emily could not continue, a show spokeswoman said: "In response to the stories in the papers this week regarding Emily Nakanda we have conducted our own investigations into the matter and we can confirm that she has chosen to withdraw herself from the competition with immediate effect." Speaking on behalf of Emily, Louis Friberg, Emily's Mother said, "As a family we are heartbroken and are very disappointed with Emily's behaviour, we feel that there is no choice but to withdraw Emily from the competition. Emily and all the family sincerely apologise to both Anna, her school and all the fans that have supported Emily. Emily regrets her actions but there is no way, as a family, we can excuse her behaviour. Emily is very sorry to have let the show, Sharon and the viewers down." Sharon Osbourne, Emily's mentor on the show said today: "I am deeply saddened by this whole situation."

Fair play to her mother for her statement. Makes a nice change from the "she was just messing about" defence.

Happy slapping... thats low.. my friends father was happy slapped off his bicycle, its despicable... Fair play to her mum, she's setting a good example.
