The (se)X Factor.

I’m not one of these television elitists who thinks the only things worth watching are David Attenborough documentaries and perhaps the news at ten.

Nor am I a music snob who bemoans the insurgence of tv talent show searching for the UK’S  next big pop star.

Okay, okay, I’ll just come right out and say it- I love The X Factor.


I love the trashy song choices, I love the cheesy dance routines and, for me, the more confetti flying around the stage, the better. I can appreciate a good Leona warble as much as the next person but to be perfectly honest with you, it’s the fully blown novelty acts that usually appeal to my inner diva, and I’m afraid to say that’s Jedward inclusive!

I think one of my favourite aspects of the show, however,  is the judge interaction. I’m all for a bit of panto-banter between Simon and Louis and, heck, I even quite like Dannii  Minogue! I’ll admit to probably being a wee bit in love with Cheryl Cole, but I think the rest of the country are pretty much with me on that one, so no surprises there.

That’s right, I’ ve got love for our X Factor lady judges. However, I can’t help but notice that week by week their outfits are getting more and more ridiculous and also… semi pornographic.


Case in point.
