The XFactor UK is a modern-day all singing-all-dancing Panto. A curse, a blight, a terrible pox upon our TV.
Louie, plays the camp Panto Villain. Tulisa, the pretty bitch. (Openly swaying votes and generally giving contradicting idiotic advice one week to the next.)
Kelly, the black mama, snapping her fingers and saying “honey” and “baby” far too often.
Last but not least, our cut-price Simon Cowell: Gary from Take That
And let’s not forget the utterly revolting ‘singing’. (‘Singing’ is frankly, far too complimentary a word.)
God bless you Russell!
