Ella – who had battled through three days of shows and sparked fix rows – told host Maya Jama that she'd "learnt so much" but felt it was her time to go home.

"Nadiah you are our new champion, and you've topped the audience vote," Maya Jama told her – before Nadiah saw her mum in the audience and burst into tears.

She managed to sob out a "thank you to everyone who voted" before breaking down in tears again.

And it proved the right choice – as when new girl Nadiyah 'walked the line' it emerged that she'd topped tonight's viewer vote after wowing judges and fans with her version of Des'ree's Missing You.

"The right choice was made!!! Nadiah, babygirl it’s your time! Well done!" said one fan, while another told her: "I think Ella did the right thing I mean 40K is a lot of money, I’m now excited to see what Nadia has".

Until now, fuming fans were convinced that the show was fixed after realising Ella was an established act who's performed at festivals.

Ella won the first show on Sunday and has beaten a further eight acts since.

Incredibly, despite being showcased as a newcomer to the music scene, Ella is already an established artist, with her songs attracting millions of plays on Spotify.

Already in her career, she has played packed out shows at the Isle of White Festival, Latitude Festival – and even supported Justin Bieber at his Purpose World Tour.

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "Ella's already won it, it's a bl**** fix."

Another said: "Walk The Line is the biggest fix ever in TV history. She didn’t even look shocked as she won tonight!"

A third tweeted: "Ella wins the night again. Completely genuine, authentic, not fixed at all."

And a fourth even mused: "One Ella of a fix this."

Walk The Line is the brainchild of Simon Cowell and it kicked off on Sunday night.
