The mistake that is often made here is assuming that Simon Cowell could get mint writers to work with Sam Bailey. It's not like top writers/producers are going to be falling over themselves to give...

Was she ever following the others in the first place? She didn't start tweeting until August 2011 which was after she'd left the show.

It was just a bit dull and 9.30pm is usually the time that ratings start to drop off anyway - having a guest act probably wouldn't help.

Andrea got the winning song in round 1 - those stale old overdone ballads win the show. Contemporary songs with dance breakdowns and rap don't. It's all about the housewives vote.

Nobody has unlimited support (labels will pull the plug even on established acts albums if they're not selling) and Simon Cowell doesn't decide what gets spent in the US (Rob Stringer does). It all...

I'm not sure the Emmerdale audience is a particular threat - and it gets an EE lead-in. They've timed it to get the artists out promoting for Christmas and they've got in ahead of the XF Final. But...

Yes, but he was pretty unpopular on X Factor. :confused:



There are, but they hadn't been signed up for IAC. Quickenden was a last minute desperation signing to tick the "fit male" box.

ITV2 is still a general entertainment channel. ITVBe is more female and more reality skewed. But in the main, it's an extension of ITV2. Xtra could be doing a lot more - look at the I'm A Celeb show...
