We have been very remiss of late with regards to reporting our televisual viewing …… especially X Factor, which we continue to embrace but have failed to mention much …..
….. because, to be honest, pictures of us watching the tele with a bowl of Pringles and a bag of Haribo Milkshakes passing between us are just plain boring!
However, we have received several e-mails asking us who are contestants(s) of choice are this year……..
Is there any doubt? Our one vote each week to keep our favourite in goes unanimously and most robustly to Sam, who we have loved since her very first audition …… as Nigel puts it soooooooo succinctly each week after her performance “Boy, she can belt out a song!”
Admittedly, we were a little fearful, as indeed Sir Gary Barlow was, that she may have faltered at “disco” but oh Mon Dieu …. she “nailed it”!
So….. at this half way stage, we will firmly stick our necks out and make a spooky Derek Acorah type prediction by saying that the X Factor finalists will be Sam, Rough Copy and Luke with the greasy hair …… we think that Rough Copy will give her a run for her money ….. but our heart belongs to Sam and we also predict a wonderfully emotional Christmas No. 1!
