My job involves a lot of waiting for the busy finalists to spare a few minutes to chat each week - their schedules are insane. Each week they are groomed, pampered, spray-tanned, their nails, hair, even eyebrows have to be 'done'. Is this the life of a musician/celebrity?! Yikes.
"This ain't the last you've seen of me!" shrieked Kemal Shahin at the cameras, the ninth person to leave the Big Brother House in 2005. Apart from a couple of random cameos, that really was the last we saw of him.
Stacey Solomon is living proof that if you are in her words a 'gymaphobe' there are other ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
It seems like music has always had a place for rebels, those individuals who become fashionable by taking against the more established fashions of their day.
Khloe, Kourtney and Kim have touched down in London to launch their Kardashian Kollection at Dorothy Perkins, and they certainly didn't come quietly.
Finger clicking Christopher started the ball rolling this week. Yes he is still standing. Good on yer man. Why not enjoy it. The public must like him, as he keeps coming back.
In my honest opinion, a decent sausage is just about all a man needs in his mouth. And with the ever-increasing range in happy organic, hand reared, spoon-fed and sea salt scrubbed sausages on the market, now is the time to be side ordering yours.
I will never say I regret doing the X Factor. It was a difficult experience but I learned so much from it. Without having been through all that I don't believe I would be where I am now, so I will always be grateful for the platform it gave me.
A name that has been honey to the lips of many critics of late is one Josephine Oniyama; a super-chilled Mancunian alt-soul singer-songwriter. With so many descriptions to follow her name, it's no real surprise that she has opted to perform under just 'Josephine'- a less cumbersome mouthful to match her clean vocal style and classic style of composition.
Bonfire night is almost upon us once again. So, will the remaining acts light up the stage like an illumination of grandeur or fizzle out like a dark, damp sparkler?
When she took to the stage in the Olympic Park this summer, it was near impossible to take your eyes off her. She almost melts into her own music, living and breathing each word and note like a one-woman theatre company. It's really quite incredible what this lady can do.
Jahmene to me, stole the show. He didn't need the make up and scary production to give me a chill. He gave a faultless performance, still humbled by the whole experience. Long may he continue.
What an opener tonight. Dermot started the show with his magic moves while the judges all looked like they wished they were somewhere else tonight! Cu...
Like the bizarre taste of synthetic strawberry and spermicide tingling on the nation's tongue, Britain will soon wake up to the fact that allowing people like Rylan Clark to enter the mainstream consciousness is a terrible idea.
Whitney Houston said that fame "made you a personality instead of a person." Amy Winehouse's sudden rise to fame plunged the singer into a fatal cycle of substance abuse. Most recently Ollie Murs admitted he battled with drink and depression after the pressures of fame became too m
While other judges may come and go, X Factor without Louis Walsh would be like peaches without cream, Laurel without Hardy, John without Edward. Louis, you really are what the X Factor is all about - I salute you!
