Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 5 - Ashley Evicted
AIRED:
Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty host the second live show of the series - which will see either Nigel, Pippa or Ashley evicted from the Academy. With Carrie deciding that the opening song "Celebration" was too much for the students, the hosts take us straight to it, and remind us of the students singing for survival. Nigel goes first, belting out "The Midnight Hour", and shaming the bookies who had him down as favourite to leave. Next up is Pippa, who sings "I'm Like A Bird" rather sweetly, admitting that her confidence problems of the past week have now disappeared. Ashley goes last, singing "I Can See Clearly Now," and the phone lines open for the public to vote for their favourite. As the votes pour in, the students safe for another week at least perform their own songs - Sinead and Malachi with "When You're Gone" by Brian Adams and Spice Girl Mel C, Grade-A student Marli's performance of "Torn" wows the audience, as do Lemar, Camilla and Ainslie, and lastly Katie and Chris' last-minute performance of "I Love Your Smile". Vocal coach Carrie explains that she has seen the students perform the songs better before, but adds that the singing is considerably better than last week, which Headteacher Richard Park agrees with. When the public vote is announced, it's Nigel who's won the heart of the viewing audience this week - and he looks genuinely shocked by the news. And then the nasty part comes - the ten students who are safe must choose whether they want Pippa or Ashley to stay. It's clear that Pippa is the favourite - getting eight out of the ten votes - only Ainslie and Nigel vote for Ashley to stay. But there's no time for any tears, as Ashley joins the students for the last time, to perform "Lean On Me", and then he's whisked away to talk to the press, while the remaining eleven students return to the Academy, another hard week ahead of them.moreless
