Almira and her three sisters made it past the Six Chair Challenge in last night's (17.10.15) episode of the talent show and will next appear at mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's Judges' Houses but have confessed they feel guilty seeing what their family and friends are going through back home.
Speaking on ITV's 'Good Morning Britain', Almira shared: "I think there is no electricity in our hometown.
"Their houses are destroyed and I think they are safe, we are thankful for that, but knowing we were born there and there's a big calamity that they are facing right now, it's very terrible.
"Now we are experiencing this glamour but then our relatives there are experiencing that, it's very heatbreaking."
Almira's sister Irene added: "We are praying for them."
