Cool beans! I thought the use of three Xs in the yahoo news headline was really quite clever... 3 Xs being the way BGT ends the hopes of those trying for a career in entertainment.

They appear to have had second thoughts about the headline.

We used to have a duvet cover that was like Sinitta's outfit - mum gave it to us - she bought it from Sainsbury's - I hated it, but fortunately it only withstood a couple of washes and is now history.

Since they long ago scraped a hole in the bottom of the barrel it's a case of "not before time" but, as it is a huge revenue stream, for both him and ITV, I daresay they'll dream up something just as crass to replace it.

Sinitta says this every year! It's just another tiresome thing to keep X-Factor in the headlines.

I hope it's true!!!
I like talent shows but The X Factor is just a scripted program that lets Simon Cowell showcase his preselected acts

Maybe we'll get a better Christmas No 1 record after it's gone!

What, like The Military Wives? Wink

X-Factor ends 2 weeks before Christmas this year, so no certainty what's going to be Number 1.

Well wasn't that only put out to stop the X Factor song?

It's a fine song - that's why it beat X-Factor. But it was helped by X-Factor finishing a week earlier than usual, so the winner already had their week of fame before being toppled. I expect the same will happen this year.
