Yay! Saturday nights at home with a curry a bottle of wine a movie for later, Match of The Day and of course Le Grande Primer! X Factor is back. Last night’s opener was as good as ever as questionable judging let some contestants through (like the lamentable wannabe Katie Waissell.)
The show was stolen by Zimbabwean Jock Gamu Nhengu who was absolutely brilliant and carries a heart rending back story too which, of course, is what it’s all about because, let’s face it, they can all sing including our pal Maria Doherty who got through to Boot Camp last night but was only shown for about 1.1 seconds.
G and S (Gay and Straight) were the night’s comedy high point if you don’t count the aforementioned Katie in which a reasonably competent straight girl is given a second chance after dueting with a mincing twit of Pythonesque proportions who took the gay cause back to the days before John Inman – what a joke.
