Stereo Kicks’ Casey Johnson and James Graham have a lot to answer for, because apparently their dead grandfathers are haunting the X Factor house. We kid you not!

We would hate to cast aspersions on this story, or to assume that perhaps this scandalous report has been released to boost votes for the failing boyband, so we’re just going to present you with the facts and let you decide for yourself.

We just received a message on Twitter, sharing with us this video clip of X Factor hopeful Jay James rehearsing his song for tomorrow night’s live show.

The X Factor 2014: Only The Young don’t want Stereo Kicks to split, but are some of the lads just useless?

stereo kicks x factor

Ever since Stereo Kicks found themselves in the bottom two on The X Factor last Sunday, there’s been speculation that some of the members could be cut from the band.

When the band were put together at Boot Camp, and were simply known as ‘New Boy Band’, we instantly thought that there were too many of them…

The X Factor returns to our screens tomorrow night and now, 24 hours ahead of the third live weekend, we have gotten our hands on the full list of songs being performed by the remaining acts.

The theme of the show is ‘Night At The Movies’, which surely has to be better than last week’s 80’s atrocity and after glancing over the list below, we can definitely tell which mentors are putting their all into this process and which are just pulling tunes out of their butts (ahem, Louis!).

Terrified mum says of X Factor boss Simon Cowell, “There is no escaping him”

simon cowell x factor 2014

That X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent boss Simon Cowell can be a fearsome figure isn’t in doubt – just ask anyone who’s got on the wrong side of him to attest to the veracity of that statement – however, for 43-year-old mum Michelle Hall, he’s become the stuff of actual nightmares…

And that’s because Michelle has developed a bizarre phobia of the music mogul, and given that he is to TV as sh** is to a field of cows – that is to say, he’s everywhere – she spends a lot of time feeling terrorised. Read more & comment »

X Factor: Sam Bailey reveals horrifying stalker trauma included child kidnap fears & ‘abuse’ allegations

It’s an unfortunate fact, and a sad indictment on our society, that so-called ‘keyboard warriors’ and Twitter trolls can and do make the lives of celebrities a misery thanks to the anonymity the internet provides, which facilitates their cruel and often vile behaviour, and which allows them do so with impunity and very little fear of ever being caught.

And former X Factor winner Sam Bailey has become the latest target of online hate thanks to a terrifying stalker whose messages and online posts about Sam left her terrified that her children could be at risk. Read more & comment »

WATCH X Factor’s Stevi Ricthie as a game show host & Chloe Jasmine spills on romance!


Before he became one of the most talented singers in the UK (that’s what you need to be to get on the X Factor live shows right?) Steve Ritchie was an aspiring game show host!

Proving our theory that the eccentric performer would do just about anything to find fame, the former holiday camp entertainer once tried his hand as a cheesy game show presenter, a career which we think would have suited him more than anything music related!
