“X Factor” UK fan favorite Lauren Murray might have shocked the viewers after she left the competition. What could be the true reason? We have the details here.

Murray decided to bid her goodbye  and  pack her bags out of the contestant’s house, notes Mirror UK. According to the site, she was upset that her friend- another X Factor contestant- Kiera Weathers, has been eliminated from the show.

Much to her dismay, the Whitney Houston fan took to Twitter her devastation:

“The house feels so empty without @ seannmileymoore @ kieraweathers1,” as we quote from the source.

She also posted a snapshot of her and Weather on her Twitter and captioned it with: ““My best friend for the rest of my life! I swear she has the kindest heart ever!”

When Weathers was asked about Murray’s plans, she said that her friend made the decision a day after she has been opted out on the “X Factor” Sunday episode. Murray didn’t show up for TV2 spinoff “The Xtra Factor” as well.

“She told me she’s left the house because she was upset but she’s still in the competition – although she’s packed her stuff,” Weathers told the Liverpool Echo, via Mirror UK.

More than that, she also said that it was hard for her leaving Lauren and the competition. However, she remained positive knowing that there will be a bright future waiting ahead.

“I’ve had a ball – I still pinch myself! How many people can say they’ve been to LA with Rita Ora?” Weathers added.

Meanwhile, Seann Miley Moore- Murray’s friend as well- was also removed from the competition.

On the other hand, UK’s hottest boyband One Direction will be coming back on the “X Factor” to perform this Sunday, reports iTV. The lads were originally discovered on the show 5 years ago.
