X Factor 2014 – As the ITV show prepares to launch again, we have audition information including dates, cities and venues as well as who the new judges might be this year.
X Factor: Mel B slammed for “horrendous” MOBO Awards presenting as police swoop on after party riot!
X Factor judge Mel B and Xtra Factor newbie Sarah-Jane Crawford have been slammed on Twitter over their presenting of the MOBO Awards this year, with angry fans accusing Mel of being drunk and of “mocking” black artists. Read more & comment »
Remember Nathan Wyburn? The guy who made portraits of the Britain’s Got Talent judges out of toast? Well he’s back and this time he’s using pickles!
The modern artist has put his skills to good use and created portraits of Elvis Presley, Cheryl Fernandez Versini and Stephen Fry, made out of Haywards Pickled Vegetables, as the brand launches their liven up meal times campaign.
Kitty Brucknell’s new single ‘Glitter in the Sky’ is out now, after a packed launch party at Rise Nightclub on Sunday, accompanied by oiled up dancers!
The video for ‘Glitter in the Sky’ premiered on VEVO and features Kitty leaping out of a plane at 20,000ft.
Lauren Platt’s fans are putting their money where their mouth is according to Ladbrokes.
A male customer in Essex has placed £5000 on local girl Lauren winning this year’s series of X Factor, and he’ll collect a cool £25,000 if Dermot O’Leary calls out her name during December’s final.
The X Factor returns to our screens on Saturday night and Dermot O’Leary has revealed that this week, the remaining contestants will be performing songs with a movie theme.
While we don’t yet know who will inevitably belt out My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion (please God don’t let it be Stevi Ritchie), or which hopeful will take on a Bodyguard track (the smart money would be on Andrea Faustini of course), we do have some teasers for the song choices.
It’s been widely reported that the now former X Factor contestant Chloe Jasmine has taken part in a number of other TV shows, including one entitled ‘Hey Big Spenders! Shopaholics Exposed’ and Naomi Campbell’s short-lived Sky show, ‘The Face’.
However, she could have been a housemate on this summer’s Celebrity Big Brother apparently, but she apparently turned down the offer from Channel 5 in order to concentrate on The X Factor. Read more & comment »
X Factor: Nicole Scherzinger IS returning & Mel B tweets about “pulling 10 hour days” mentoring her acts
When Nicole Scherzinger first joined the judging panel of X Factor UK, it was following a stint as a judge on the now defunct X Factor USA…
And at the time, it was reported that show boss Simon Cowell had sent her over to Britain to “spy” on then judges Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos – Nicole replaced Kelly Rowland – amid fears that the show was continuing to lose viewers. Read more & comment »
Jake Sims has laughed off a recent furore surrounding some old pictures of himself, admitting that he doesn’t mind if fans have a peek at him in his birthday suit.
The X Factor star may just have cemented his place in boyband Stereo Kicks, after it was reported that mentor Louis Walsh is considering axing two singers from the group. Fans would surely be up in arms if Jake left now, after they’d seen his ding dong!
It’s nearly time for the acts to face the music as we gear up for another X Factor this weekend. Going nowhere is Andrea Faustini, who remains the firm favourite at 2/1, but storming her way up the charts is little Lauren Platt, whose stellar performances now have her as a strong contender to win this year at odds of 3/1.
Not doing so well is poor Jake Quickenden who is the 15/8 favourite to be shown the stage door this week, with this series’ Wagner, Stevi Ritchie not far behind at odds of 4/1 that he’ll soon be joining his sweetheart Chloe on the X Factor scrapheap.
