Saara managed to secure a total of 33.5 points out of 40 from the judging panel – but it was soon revealed she had suffered injuries moments before performing.
Phillip said: “How about that! 33.5 out of 40. You got a nine!”
Saara gasped: “What just happened? Wow. We’ve worked so hard this week because we just needed to nail that performance.”
Phillip then revealed: “What nobody knows is that about three seconds before you did that performance you fell over and banged your head.
“Are you okay?” to which Saara replied: “I don’t know! I hope so.”
Phillip then asked: “Do you know where you are?”
Grabbing the right side of her head, Saara explained: “This side of my head is just like… hot and warm and I don’t know.
Phillip then teased: “How many fingers am I holding up?”
Going along with the joke, Saara said: “I don’t know,” before grabbing Phillip’s hand and saying: “Three.”
Holly added: “Actually, you’ve got quite a nasty bruise on your shoulder there as well. Let’s get you seen by the medics.”

“My nerves have just gone since the fall. My legs are like jelly. They’ve just gone. It has knocked my confidence.”
Phillip replied: “Well, listen, we’ve got next week as well, so you know, you’ve got the whole week now to practice and build it all back up again,” prompting many viewers to claim the vote was “fixed”.
A spokesperson for ITV denied the claims and told Express.co.uk: “The show is not fixed.”
