The X Factor is nearing the live stages of th competition, that part where it actually gets serious and the chaff is once and for all separated from the wheat.
Before that though was the Boot Camp, where all the hopefuls had one last chance to prove themselves. This was held in a big stately home somewhere in England.
Xtra Factor presenter Fearne Cotton (the one not deemed good enough to present real television) decided she needed to take a look around the Boot Camp, suitably titled House X.
There have been some rather lewd suggestions of what went on at House X, and while I can’t say whether they are true or not, if you put a group of young virile people together in a big house you know what to expect.
Fearne calls this Boot Camp Safari as she drives around viewing all the hopeful singing wannabees like we all go gawking at wild animals in a safari park. Well, it’s a living I suppose.
