Still, at least it's not 'Gummo'.

The songs that each of the remaining ‘X Factor’ acts will be performing for Movies Week have been revealed, and bosses are really stretching that theme as far as it will go.

True, among the list of songs are obligatory offerings from the soundtracks to ‘Pretty Woman’, ‘Titanic’ and even a ‘James Bond’ theme, but elsewhere, the films chosen are a little on the niche side.

We’re specifically talking about Honey G, who’s performing a mash-up of ‘It’s Like That’ and ‘Getting Jiggy With It’.

When she says Honey, we say 'what film is that from, for heaven's sake?'

And while we’re sure we’re in for another outlandish performance, we couldn’t help but wonder what films ‘It’s Like That’ and ‘Getting Jiggy With It’ feature in.

Why, ‘Keith Lemon - The Film’ and ‘Last Days Of Disco’, of course.

Because when we think “films that famously include music”, our first thought is ‘Keith Lemon - The Film’, naturally.

Kelly Brook was in it, so you know it's good?
